If you have a trusted tenant in mind, that will help you in rent. Damage to property can be minimized and noise complaints will come down if you are familiar with the person renting the home.
Forget not to get every thing in writing, whether it is your best friend or family member. It is a must if the home is rented out to some one else. A friend can be too easy on late payment of rent or take advantage of friendship or intimacy. Ensure that every thing is properly understood and both are clear about mutual expectations.

The bank refused to let it go.
According to the investor both the parties were deluded. The bank cannot expect a higher price from a private buyer when there were no bids at $300000 plus costs, points and a 6% brokerage commission.
In case your real estate is not selling consider if the sale is important or your stubbornness and now lowering the price of the house to suit the situation.
