In terms of vacations and places to crash, I found it easy to decide on which place to go to or which pad to crash at by checking out Google - that is if I am not familiar to the place or I don't know anyone around the area, if there are some friends or something, I'd contact them and get the best advice from people who lives in the area. Anyways, going back to google, it does have a list of places to go to (and you can be specific). Nowadays those websites already lists the things that you can do in that place and how much it would cost. Google makes life easier wink.gif

Actually if house is not in use then rent is the best option to keep it in use as well as to earn money side by side. I think if you do Google on this some time then you will definitely get lot easier ways to rent house.

As of now there are tons of websites in Google where you can find houses for rent in different locations. So it would mainly depend on what place you decide to settle in. And if you wish to generate income from those houses that are inactive for a couple of months better dress them up, create an online niche and advertise them. biggrin.gif

What you should do is create a FaceBook Fan Page and name it SunnyPortugalRentals or something similar, this will be your FaceBook URL. I would then create free Classified Ads
in craigslist, kijiji, backpage, adlandpro or on any of the many free international realestate classifieds.

I get great results from advertising my FaceBook Fan Page on classifieds and on related forums. Your FaceBook Fan Page also allows you to offer something for free to visitors who click the Like Button. You could create a discount coupon giving one free month or free cable TV Netflix or something similar.

This is very powerful marketing because you will be able to contact your FB Like friends
with new offers, discounts,specials..etc.

No its a nice Question.
the best way to rent your house is that you start updating-once you become a landlord, it's your responsibility to provide a safe and healthful home for your tenants.
In addition, an updated and clean home will not only increase your likelihood of finding a tenant, but it will also allow you to charge higher rent.

Second thing you can do is,Change your home's status- You must call your mortgage company to let it know you're no longer living in the home. The company will have to grant permission for you to rent it, and a small fee may be involved.

Next is, Change your homeowners insurance- Before your new tenants move in, you must have landlord property insurance specifically for a rental property. This is a different policy than your current homeowners insurance. Be prepared; insurance for a rental is probably going to cost more than your homeowners-insurance coverage.

Another main thing is that,Decide who will manage the property- Are you going to manage the property yourself or hire a property-management firm to do the work for you? It's a big decision.

Finally you can do is, Determine the rent- Knowing how much to charge for rent can be tricky. Charge too little and you lose money. Charge too much and your house sits empty.

In today's real-estate market, more homeowners are becoming landlords. After all, home prices are down 50% or more in some parts of the country. The thought of trying to sell in such a market can make even the most weathered homeowner's stomach clench.
If you're thinking about turning your home into a rental property and becoming a landlord to ride things out, what must you do to make it happen? Here are five steps to get you started.
1. Start updating
2. Change your home's status
3. Change your homeowners insurance
4. Decide who will manage the property
5. Determine the rent

If you are renting out your houses, be sure to run a thorough job, reference and credit check on your potential tenants before allowing them to move in. And, get a damage/security deposit to cover damages caused by unruly tenants.

I know the OP posted this long time ago, but for anyone that is in a similar situation. I am in the middle of a partnering with an International Company that has to deal with helping you to rent out your condos, house, apartments, and possibly rooms.

I will keep you guys posted when I officially become an Ambassador for my region and refer you to others if you are International.
