Having someone living in your cottage, home, or other property requires extra consideration for a successful sale. As a landlord, you have the right to put up your investment property for sale. There are some things you should do to make the sale go smoothly. If you have a property that’s occupied by a tenant, here’s how to approach the selling situation without violating the tenant’s rights.
1. Property Showing and Marketing Considerations
Showing and marketing of the property will go smoothly if there is no tenant in residence. But selling a rental-occupied home requires extra effort because someone else is already living in the home. You will want to take into consideration both the tenants’ rights and rental agreements, and your own rights as a landlord which are discussed in detail here on our blog, How To Sell Your Home With Existing Tenants? An uncooperative tenant can easily break a sale, so make showing times easier for the tenant. Give your tenants at least 24 hours notice for property showings. You can incentivize them to keep your rental home in good condition. Financial incentives are a great way to keep your tenants happy and cooperative. But do not fail to respect the privacy of your tenants.
2. Understand the Type of Buyers to Sell Your Rental Property
In a competitive real estate market, it is vital to know the different types of rental home buyers for a quick sale. You must have the ability to find and attract the right buyer. Target your marketing needs in such a way so that it can greatly impact the success of your sale.
• Your Tenants
Speak to your tenants personally and check if they want to buy the property they live in. They may be interested in buying your rental home. Choose long-term tenants with a stable income who can buy the home for ready cash. If they love the house and are willing to pay in ready cash, they could be your best buyer.
• Young Millennial Buyers
Did you know that around 86 percent of millennial buyers consider owning a home rather than renting? They feel that it has a positive impact on their long-term finances. These active buyers do not rely on seasons or other schedules to purchase homes. For them, the market is on at all times. They prefer to see houses and buy immediately if it satisfies their buying requirements.
