Sell Your House

If relocating, you always have the option to sell your current house. But did you know that there is more than just one way of selling? We’ve researched three most common ways of selling your property after relocating!

Sell Your House Using a Realtor

Selling your house using a realtor is an excellent option for those who don’t want to or don’t have the experience in house-selling. You get get to choose how much you wish to be involved in the process, however, there are some pros and cons you have to consider if you wish to sell your house after relocating.


  • Perfect option for those who are not interested in doing anything during the process.


  • Could take months, or longer, before the deal is closed.
  • Realtors are not cheap - be prepared to pay thousands of dollars in commissions.
  • You might have to make house repairs and gather all necessary paperwork which could delay the selling process.
  • Deals often fall apart due to inspections, appraisals and financing.
  • You may have to travel back to Rochester several times during the process.

Sell Your House For Sale By Owner

Selling your house independently will give you a chance to get more experience of the real estate market. This is a perfect choice for those confident in their selling skills.


  • Hands-on approach and a networking experience.

Rent Out Your House

If you don’t feel like selling your home is the best option now, renting out your house is an ideal alternative.

This might mean you will need to have a hands-on approach as you will become the landlord. Renting out a house would suit best those who are still staying in the area after relocation. However, there are options you can take such as hiring an extra property manager.


  • You will receive a steady amount of money every single month.
  • Landlords benefit from many tax advantages as well as mortgage interest deductions.
  • It’s a fantastic way to learn some management skills.


  • You will need to stay on top of all house repairs to keep your tenants happy.
  • Due to common tenant disputes, you might need to require a lawyer.
  • Property manager fees in case you are relocating further away.
  • Tenants can and will damage your house.
  • You stay responsible for costly repairs and ongoing maintenance.
  • Extended periods of vacancy can very financially straining.

Tips for renting a house:

  • Make sure you inspect the entire property and renovate what is necessary.
  • Pick the right tenants! You are able to run all necessary checks possible to ensure your future tenant is able to pay their rent.
  • New York state is EXTREMELY tenant friendly. Get familiar with the landlord-tenant laws.
  • Prepare a ‘renting’ fund - make sure you are always able to afford any neccessary repairs.
  • Hire a cleaning service before and after the tenants move out of the house.
