I was told recently that by renting out your home you may be changing it from a personal residence to an investment asset. This could then effect your capital gains when selling the house.

Just a suggestion to be carefull about the implications of such a move. If you think this is a option you will consider, I'd do some additional research.

Good Luck,
Doug
