While the market is certainly rebounding and the median home prices continue to increase while the inventory decreases, makes it an ideal climate to sell your condo. If you are still waiting for the median home prices to come up further, renting your condo is a very good option. You can rent a home and still keep it on the market with a simple provision for showings in the lease. Further, you can dictate pet policies, visitors, and just who will be living in your condo.

2. Pets. If you association does not allow pets, this is not an issue, however if they do, decide how you would like to handle this, whether small pets under 15 lbs or large dogs. Keep in mind, if you are looking to sell, you may have to make upgrades if damages are on account of animals. This is why the pet deposit is so important.
