If you seriously want to keep it, how about having someone like a friend that you trust live there rent free to maintain the house?

Sounds like a great idea !!  How about a 5 year Contract Robert?   I'll look after the Vet and the Strada also 😁

Sounds like a plan. But if it were my house, they would be responsible for the electric, water, cable/satellite tv and internet bills. And there would be a substantial security deposit. Cold day in hell before I would let them drive my car. 😆

Robert isn't giving out any info on the status of the car so I assume its still available

Like you, I haven't experienced any trouble with my house being empty at times in the US. The same cannot be said about our property in the Philippines. Sounds like the start of a new, sure to be popular thread called "Expat Property Owners Horror Stories", or perhaps, "How many ways can your in-laws screw you over?"  :biggrin_01:

The car will go with house . As to a watcher just not good sure they will call maint. And give me the bill and if i come back for a vacation more drama .PLus need car insurance keep registered ..  if i was as rich as davao or even roger no problem but alas i am so middle class . And wife want to buy in arizona and open a care home and i say before that happens we sell vista.  

Two tech problems with sale one i need a closing date close to when daughter goes usa and only interview is left and Luke but that is a non problem as she is nurse and knows in advance any medical.   Second is wife signing she wants to be here instead of a POA  as to buyers have 3 offers same time but committing to close date hard on my end . One buyer offered to buy now and let me rent till l i leave no deposit but rent is 100.000 month that seems stupid.i pay rent and if stuck here 6 months .. so drama is present in every step we take

Have you thought about turning the property into a business like a BnB?  With a competent resident operator contracted to commercialise and you go home to the USA and receive a monthly pay. Perhaps have to wait until the Covid is under control and tourist move again.   :cheers:
