Have you thought about renting your property or townhouse in Downingtown, PA. Your in luck, the market is booming. I've seen rents go up about 5% a year for a townhome in Downingtown. The town and community is safe and with Exton, West Chester, and King of Prussia nearby, there is plenty of demand for housing, and more importantly, good paying tenants. If you haven't had experience in being a landlord, think about a locally run property manager like Bell Tavern Property Services or Busza Property Management. They manage rental properties between the Malvern, Pottstown, and Coatesville triangle.
When you rent, remember that it is always better to get good tenants versus renting for the highest rents and money. Higher rents means more turnover and more vacancy and a smaller, more demanding crowd to please which will cost you more in time. Renting for a good, fair price will give you more of a selection of tenants to select. A local Downingtown property manager or Exton property manager or realtor can help you through or you can visit sites like landlord.com or realtor.com to help you. Good luck.
