Looking: Some key tips that we found useful:

- Find a good local real estate professional. We aligned with Jeff Dicks of RealCore Realty (and National Rental Pros), and he was (and continues to be) excellent! (602)745-1111
- For renting it is handy if he/she is also (or connected to) a property manager
- If he/she has a network of contacts for repairs etc, that will help reduce costs
- Check for Home Owner Association applicability, rules/regs in addition to the usual information sources. E.g. Make sure there are no restrictions against renting if that is what you intend

Our experience was that a good real estate professional who is well connected, and who can seemlessly manage the property for rent after the sale can significantly reduce expense and workload.
