The answer to this question lies in the disadvantages and advantages of the two options. If we can fully understand them, then we will be able to come up with a reasonable conclusion. 

Advantages Of Renting Your Home

Revenue generation

By renting your home, you can generate revenue probably on a monthly or a yearly basis. This way, it would take a while before you’re able to make back the money you put into the project.

Ownership rights

By renting it out, you’re still the sole owner of the house; you have a large right percentage on the house. In a way, you might still be able to regulate the activities that go on in the house. Though it shouldn’t be overboard, it’s still your house.

Disadvantages Of Renting Your Home

Money comes in a bit

If you look forward to getting back the money you used to build the house, then you should be looking at a certain period of time based on the amount you’re getting monthly or yearly. You cannot get the money back once.

Maintenance of the house

Maintaining your house is not in your care any longer. Normally, you might have a standard you go for, but with people in it, they might not be able to maintain your home up to the standard you want it to be.

Now that you have seen this let’s talk about selling your home.

Advantages Of Selling Your Home

Money comes in bulk

When you build a house, you might have a particular amount that you invested into it, and then when you want to sell, you add an extra percentage to it, which means that you’re selling at a higher price. This way you can get your money in bulk to solve whatever need is on the ground.

You don’t have to worry about the house any longer

Any expense that the house incurs is no longer on you, so you don’t need to spend any money again on the house. 

Disadvantages Of Selling Your Home

You don’t have ownership of the property

There is a prestige that comes with knowing you have a house. But in this case, when you sell your home, you don’t have any right to that house again. You have to worry about building another one.

You might miss out on property appreciation.

Depending on how much you sold the house, in the long run, you might still miss out on the property appreciation. Therefore a tendency it supersedes the amount you sold it for.

Having seen this, you should weigh your options and know what would work best for you.
