Does your home have another bathroom with a Tub? Future buyers with young children will want at least one tub in the property to bathe them. If you opt for the oversixed shower think of building in a place for a woman to be able to sit to shave.

Consider inviting a few local agents from different realty companies--ask for their opinion as to any renovations, market conditions, etc., , also ask for a cma--comparative market analysis, in order to determine a fair listing price-- you may wish to hire one of those agents as your listing agent...... more
Read your contract language. Does he have the right to do so?
If not, you need to decide whether you want to assert your rights under the contract. That can be stressful and ugly and if he really needs to sell, then you may be able to settle on a small cash consideration to you from the owner for you to leave now..
He does have the ability to sell with you still in the home. So maybe there is more to this story.
Either way, you are probably looking for another place to live. This is a good example of why home ownership has its benefits.
Hi Brian, do you have a written lease in place? Often times a lease will spell out the amount of notice you have to give your tenants to show the property. If the unit is clean and presentable, it should not negatively impact the price, though a vacant, clean, nicely staged property certainly is preferable.
If you decide to sell, I would recommend just being forthright with your tenants and let them know that you will be showing the place. You might want to consider picking a day or two each week to do set showings so that their lives are not continuously disrupted. Give them enough notice.
The other piece of this is that a buyer will have to be a landlord until Sept. 2010 so you may have a more limited pool of buyers i.e. investors.

Make a copy of your pre-approval and white out the amount before you forward it to the seller. If you are using a Realtor they would or should always do that for you.
