5 Tips to Selling a Condo or a Home with Tenants

Selling a condo, a townhome, or a home  involves the basics of preparing the condo or the home and allowing access to potential buyers. When the property is still occupied by tenants, the process can become more complicated. Tenants in the middle of a move can find it difficult or even burdensome to keep the home in show-ready condition and allowing access to the condo or the home is certainly a disruption to their home life.

Fortunately, by following a few simple tips, you can minimize the impact on the current tenants while still selling the property for the best possible price and terms.

5 Tips to Selling a Home with Tenants

  1. Communicate with Your Tenants Early and Often – There is nothing complicated here, clear communication about the process and timing will alleviate the anxiety of the tenants.
  2. Create a Showing Schedule – Work with your tenants to create a window of time each day/week for showings to minimize impact.  Landlords and Tenants: Rights and Responsibilities

  4. Be Flexible and Understanding – Above all, be willing to compromise when necessary.
