I have an opportunity to move overseas for work and plan to live there for about 3-4 years.
The debate: Whether I should sell our primary home right now since the market is hot and put the gain directly into an index fund so it can grow? Or should we hold it and rent it out? The net cash flow will be about $200 after property management fees, rainy day fund, etc. So it’s not a huge cash flow, but we would have someone paying off our mortgage while we are gone and sell for a bigger profit later.
The estimated net gain from the sale of the house would be ~$200-250k.
