They stayed in the home for showings, said that it was wonderful that the owners were allowing them to stay in the house until the end of the school year, let their dogs do their bowel movements in the basement.
We sold the home about 45 days after we got them out.

We truly understand the need in many cases to have a renter in place to generate cash flow to off set expenses. However, if you are a serious seller, there are many reasons why it is best to sell without a tenant in place.
They have nothing invested in the sale of the home, and generally don't care about the condition it is shown in, and view it as a serious inconvienience to them. Additionally, given the option to show an unoccupied unit opposed to one with a tenant, the one without a tenant will get the edge, because of the commonly accepted negative factors associated with this sinerio.
