Some free advice!
Let’s say that you’re off to Italy for a two-month holiday. You’d feel better if someone were in your place keeping an eye on things and watering the plants. You may have trouble subletting for such a short time unless you keep the cost low.
If you’re storing the sofa, dining table, and TV while you’re gone, you shouldn’t expect a tenant to pay what they would for a fully furnished place. These are two different price points, so keep that in mind.
Up front, you need to decide who’s responsible for paying utility bills, and adjust rent expectations accordingly.
The beauty of hiring a property management company to run your sublet in Montreal is that, well, all of this is taken care of on your behalf.
