Would it better to rent my house or sell it?

Life happens, and sometimes, you have to move sooner than you anticipated. But is it better to rent your house and ride the market or sell it to cash out? To help decide, here are five questions to get you started: 1. After accounting for all expenses, will renting be profitable? 2. Do you want a part-time job as a landlord? 3. What are the tax implications? 4. Will you need to move back? 5. Which way is the market headed? It’s a lot easier to list out these questions than to answer them. If you’re trying to decide whether to rent or sell your home, give me a call. Together we can get you the answers you need to make a confident decision.

Shannon McCarthy did a truly incredible job for us under some fairly trying & unique circumstances. I was acting as realtor power of attorney for a dear, elderly friend who needed every kind of help selling his property. The property itself had its challenges. And I had absolutely no experience in selling a home. Shannon worked tirelessly to gather solid information & help us make good decisions for my friend. Almost as…if not more!… importantly, she was 100% patient, positive & just downright lovely with what had to be a challenging job. She was highly responsive & the one time she was not immediately available, she gave us over a week’s notice… plus a reminder! I truly canNOT recommend Shannon McCarthy enough!

Dear Shannon ... you have been such a Doll during this whole process. Tom and I have had much experience with buying and selling houses, but I have to honestly say, as far as realtors go, you have been the best.... truly that's how we feel! We have never experienced the amount of time and energy you spent with communicating with us and all others during this process. I would love to have your writing eloquence, not to mention your energy!! We are beholding to you for making this such a smooth transaction. Charlie and Sam are very lucky to have you as a friend! Thank you for all you did to accomplish all the steps needed to be taken (and are still doing). I would have never known you were fairly young in the business, you come across as a well seasoned pro, only better!! Debby Arzberger

Shannon is a dream agent. She is brilliant and she is FAST. She's astoundingly quick with communication, from forwarding offers as they come in to talking to agents to communicating with the folks she represents. Moreover, she's not just fast, but she's also accurate. She goes out of her way to make things easier for people, from running across town to meeting locksmiths to making deliveries to offering to help load a lawnmower (!). Shannon is a true professional: her emails are always clear, she's always exactly where she says she'll be when she says she'll be there, and she had our best interest at heart from the start. On top of all of that, she is kind, generous, and not one bit pretentious. She is real, honest, and hardworking; she gets the job done and gets it done right. Look out real estate world, because Shannon McCarthy is blazing a path.

We were looking to buy a relatively inexpensive home with our son in what was a difficult buyer's market. Shannon was patient with us and always optimistic that we would find something. She worked hard to meet our needs and represent us. She was flexible and always willing to go the extra mile. It paid off as we did find the right home thanks to Shannon's intelligence, kindness, and effort.

From the Beverly Hanks brochures about what a broker was to do, Shannon went well beyond that to get the house sold. She followed up on all the buyer's requests and called many of the contractors to complete the list of things noted from the inspection. I have always said that the seller always wonder if the house could be sold for more and the buyer wonders if the price could have been lower.. Over-all I have been satisfied
