Is it stupid to sell a house 3 years after buying it for only about $1,000-10,000 in profit? I originally bought it for myself but hated it and now rent it out but I also hate being a landlord...

Doesn’t really sound like this is a financial related decision for you, then. If based on feeling seems pretty straight forward (and completely valid)

I can't stop worrying that another housing crash is imminent and since owning a house in general gives me so much anxiety (I seriously plan to rent forever after this) I really just want to get rid of it. But is this dumb? Is it better to stick it out for a few more years while I build equity and then sell?

I make a little bit more than the mortgage in rent, but not much more and there are a lot of little repairs that need to be done that will eat all of that extra up. I'm basically in a holding pattern and my emotions want to just walk away from it all but I don't come from money and obviously have a lot of anxiety about financial risks so I want to make sure I'm not being completely shortsighted.

A1 gave good advice. If it was me, I would pay for a property management company to manage it and take care of the headache. At the end of the day it is still a long term investment and based on your rent to mortgage payment should work out for you but not at the expense of your health re stress etc

If you hate it, sell it. Come out even and without the headache.

Definitely sell it and be happy

Yea if you hate it that much and it is causing stress just sell it. Otherwise, calculate the return on equity you are getting and decide if that is worth the risk (or stress) to you.
