You could try going through a real estate agent and have them list it for rent. That might be a better way to find quality tenants. Also, landlords ask for a security deposit so if there is any damage that money pays for it, plus the incentive to the renters to keep the place nice is that they get the security deposit back when they move out.
You can set the rules (professional couple, no pets, no smoking etc...)
It's something to look into. Good Luck
