Having no experience as an owner of rental property, I'm interested in learning from the experiences of others. We own a small condo at a ski resort in NH. Worth about $200k, owe about $70k. It's not a huge
financial burden right now, but I definitely feel it. We don't get up there nearly as much as we used to, and I'm ready to put it on the market, but DW has a scooby-snack reaction on those infrequent times we do get up there; she loves it and completely unwinds.
We've never rented it out (primarily based on avoiding the skeevy "someone is sleeping in my bed" feeling), but I'm wondering if that might be something to consider so it would make some kind of financial sense to hold on to it. Anybody in a similar situation? Is it worth becoming a part-time landlord to allow for our "every-now-and-then" visits?
