How important is it to consider tenants when selling a rental property?

Asked by California Mortgage Broker, 92075 Thu May 17, 2007

What concessions or incentives should I offer tenants when selling my rental in Phoenix?

It depends on the situation, Brian. In many cases, the rental property is being purchased by another investor who finds having existing tenants to be a plus. In this case, there wouldn't be a need to offer any kind of incentives. If the buyer doesn't want to have the tenants, it's not uncommon to see a "buyout" of a month or two for the tenants though none technically is required. It's also not uncommon to see a landlord adjust the rent or make some other accommodation to allow for showings without having to obey the 48-hour rule for access to the property.

Tenants can be a great place to look when trying to sell a property. You may want to offer to pick up all their closing costs. They could probably get in for no money down as well.
