I was a PCV in Thailand 25 years ago and, having just retired, am in the process of reapplying. I am single, no kids, and no siblings I would trust with management of my home while I'm gone for 2-3 years. I don't want to sell, most friends say hiring rental management will end up with the house getting treated pretty roughly, and I am concerned about costs and liability issues with just finding a young family at church to live there for next to nothing. Ideas that seem to be working?

We are just leaving our house in the care of our niece for the 2+ years that we will be gone. However, I am impressed with the networking available that we had 4 solid couples very willing to take over the house while we were gone. My suggestion is to network locally at businesses you frequent, organizations you are a part of and let folks know you are headed out and do they know anyone. Teachers, nurses and firefighters tend to not make much money and are looking for a 'leg up' hence will treat your property more gently.
if you like, you can email me for more details. Matttowne@metrocast.net [note the three t's in the middle.]
