Rent your apartment via a trustworthy agency

There are two ways for you to rent an apartment that you own. You can rent it yourself by finding tenants yourself aka posting the listing for the apartment on a website yourself. And you can also have an agency renting out your apartment. As you are renting an apartment out of the state you live in, this is the best option. The only disadvantage is the fact that you will be getting less money than you would if you were to rent the apartment yourself. But surely the best way for people to find apartments is by searching through online listings.

Consider moving to that state

A lot of the time, moving from one state to another is a good change to make in your life. If you leave Vegas for good and settle down in Miami, you will start living a much faster lifestyle for example. If you move from New York to Las Vegas it is going to be completely the opposite. So, consider moving to the state where your apartment is. You already have an apartment there so there will be no need to rent one.

As they will be handling your belongings it is very important that you are able to trust them completely. Especially if this is your first time moving out.

Have a thorough tenant screening

Screening your tenants is very important. You have to get to know them before you let them live on your property. You should definitely do the screening yourself. Letting an agency do this for you is the worst thing you can do. But rarely any agency will do this without your presence so this is not something you should worry about.
