    Hi Ohio Girl, I'm David (in Ohio), Portsmouth. We bought a house in Pennecamp in Dec. We plan on going down March 1 to start the furnishing process. Is the weather decent in March? I can't wait to get away from the cold and snowy southern Ohio. Also hope to go back in June when you said you will be there. Hopefully we can meet and say HI. Hope to see you in June. Dave and Jean Spears.

    Hi, Ohiogirl. Since you rent out your home, Im wondering if you would help us.

    Were planning to retire and buy in TV in 2012. We just visited TV for the first time last week. Now were considering buying a turn-key 2/2 Patio Villa or a turn-key 2/2 Ranch (if we can find a bargain) right away and renting it out. When we get there in 2012, we will decide to sell it or keep it for income.

    We have run the numbers and feel that to break even for a calendar year, we need to rent it January-March, plus about 3-4 more months. Does this make sense? Of course, this is barring any unexpected mechanical repairs.

    Is it reasonable to expect at least 6-7 months of occupancy?
    How has the market for renting changed recently?
    What have you learned that you wish you knew before you started renting?
    If you are not currently in TV, do you recommend using a property manager? If yes, who do you use?

    Thanks for any input you can provide! See you later in the forum!
