Sorry Sellers! Buyers are not Interested in Buying, THEN Looking
Don't Ask Buyers to Write an Offer, THEN Tour the Property!
If you have a tenant in place and hope to work with a buyer, only to show the home ‘once under Contract,’ think again! How often have you purchased something the magnitude of real property without seeing it first? Why, that's like putting the cart before the horse - don't you think?
If you happen to have tenants in place and your agent tells you that your home will sell within a week of listing…wait to list until the tenant is out. Rushing the selling process will cost you money and cause you incredible stress.
Countless times we see tenants disrupt showings, thwarting the efforts of sellers to get top dollar on their home. Remember, the longer your home is on the market, the less it’s going to sell for. A buyer isn’t going to hold out to buy your property a month and expect to pay full price!
NOTE: Your tenant has no vested interest in selling your property…ZERO! If you think you can work around a tenant in place, you’ve been given bad information! Tenants are mere obstacles to selling and you're already at a disadvantage as many buyers are less likely to tour homes that have been rentals for long periods of time.
Why? Most tenant-occupied property is not maintained to the standard that owner occupant property is. A buyer would much rather tour a vacant or staged (preferably) property AFTER the tenant vacates it.
Your net will be higher when you sell your property without a tenant…and your headaches, fewer!
