Renting out my house was a mess

I bought a house in Jacksonville, Florida since I thought I would be there for quite awhile.

  • Shortly afterwards I met the love of my life and we moved further north.

I decided that I was going to rent my house out and make some money. It was such a pain in the butt. The turnover rate is so high. It felt like I was constantly going back to Florida in order to update, paint, and then have people tour the place. I also hated that anytime something went wrong, I was the first phone call. I would hire a plumber just to unclog a toilet. It was expensive and irritating. I wanted to enjoy my new life up north. I then decided that I had to unload this property. I tried listing with a real estate agent but that was a mess. The agent took forever to list the property and there were updates she wanted me to make. I also had a lot of calls back and forth with her. It started to stress me out. So what I did instead is look for local home buyers in Florida. I found a Jax cash buyer that was willing to take the place off my hands. It was a simple one day procedure. They looked at the house, gave me a price, I haggled, we agreed, and now I am done. I don’t have any real estate in Florida anymore but have cash on hand. I am now going to use that cash to buy another home that works for my boyfriend and I.
