That way a potential buyer can get a general idea of the type of the interior the property has. An older updated unit will command more than an older non-updated unit. It is not uncommon for buyers to terminate a transaction upon viewing the property because it is not updated.
Try and eliminate some of that aspect with interior photos.
1) Not displaying the property's address outside of the local MLS's database
2) Instructing buyer's agents and their clients not to talk to, or otherwise contact, tenants
3) Not putting a sign on the property
What most agents in the Salem area do to accomplish what Ryan and Chun suggested below is to write in the MLS listing comments for other agents: "write offers 'subject to interior inspection'." This is a phrase that essentially means that buyers will not be able to tour the interior of any of the units until their offer has been accepted. It also means the buyer can back out of the transaction if they don't like what they find when they conduct that interior inspection.
Best of luck in your efforts.
The Listing Agreement should read:
1.) Donâ€™t disturb tenants!
2.) Present all offers subject to: Walk through inspection. Include all documentation requested. This way you will be cutting off many unqualified buyers and there are plenty out there.
3.) You will keep your tenants if the transaction is not closing
4.) Your tenant will appreciate you consideration for them.
