Investors are often confused when selling as to whether their investment property should be vacant or tenanted when selling.
If you elect to have the property vacant, you have flexible access to allow open for inspections and you don’t have to worry about the tidiness of the property for inspections either. On the downside you are not receiving rental income during the marketing and sales period.
By allowing tenants to remain in the property you improve the scope for another investor to purchase it as they can see that a lease is in place and that it is a current investment option.
It really is a matter of getting as much information as possible and then weigh up the options prior to proceeding.
