If it is being rented and the owner is selling,It is easier to sell when they leave.
A Contract may be delayed. Tenants may not be ready or willing to leave even if they promised
If they moved it is better if it is staged. It will show better. Empty rooms do not look appealing and the right furniture actually makes it looks bigger.
If an owner lives there that is fine. It i better if they leave during showings. They may say things that they think may help but may actually hurt a sale. The sales agent is trained and know the most important details to point out.

It might be from a previous listing that carried over, otherwise you'll have to contact the site admins directly.

Normally, renovations will give you not only a decent return and quicker sale, as well as greater enjoyment for the owner at the same time. But if you are not living in the property and there is a limit to what you can ask in your neighborhood, then your best bet is to get a local realtor to your home for an evaluation. ... more

I suggest you read the listing contract your and/or your sister signed. The laws and contracts vary by state, so I suggest you discuss this with your agent after you read your rights and options in your contract.

All the best to you.

It varies based on condition, style of home and price but, I would plan on 6 months as a guide.
Condition would enable some homes to sell within 1 week and others not. Even get an offer in a year.
Off street parking makes the sale much quicker too.

Hi Abigail,

If by title you mean the deed, you do not have to have it in your possession. It gets recorded in the public record, which in Albany County is located in the County Clerk's office, so that everybody can know who owns any given property. A buyer will have a title search done which will show who the owner is.
