Well I'm only in for 15K plus a whole lot of sweat equity since she's an older gal, but I do love her. I was thinking more about the risks of a clueless renter, but now you've got me worried about a shifty one too. The insurance point is a good one too - I couldn't remember how that would roll out legally if I'm not on hand when damage occurs.
I may put out feelers on craigslist anyway and see what breed of folks respond, and take it or leave it from there. I'd prefer to believe that there are other responsible, good-natured dreamers out there. Thanks for the advice.
If the insurance company asks, we never had this conversation.
