Thanks for the good feedback and defining LKQ.
If tenant renews that would be fine.
The house is in GA.
I think will inspect the vinyl and carpet and if in bad shape will just replace it or
maybe give carpet credit in case people want to put in hardwoods.
Challenge is being the largest starter house in neighborhood overpricing the neighborhood.
Smaller homes in the neighborhood did the hardwoods and quartz counters but I don't think I would never see the increase.
A few are doing LVP.
Think may be best to keep the carpet.
Note to self. While we love the house and basement when going to sell a house being the most expensive house is not a positive.
As far as fixing basement that would only be for us to live in for 2 years to avoid the capital gains.

As far as selling it or keeping it as a rental, no one here knows your financial situation. The market is good now and continues to do well;however, it can crash tomorrow!
Of course it's a preference; so why put money into narrowing the field of potential buyers? The OP said the house had a basement, which almost completely eliminates the possibility it's in Florida.
