As Debbie said, "along with the stove and built-in dishwasher! "
Real estate professionals who have been in business long enough for the ink to dry on the license, will share with your the never ending saga of selling a tenant occupied home. It is absolutely doable, but rarely produces the outcome most benefical to you, especially if located in a purely residential community.
If you have no alternatives to selling the house while it is occupied, I would recommend incentive's for the tenant to be collaborators in the process. Create a real environment where they can see benefit in helping you get this house sold.
Lastly, if you are selling to another investor, have the best documentation available regarding expenses and cash flow. Know the comps and community value ceiling. It would be great if you had a projection of ARV that would be beneficial to the new owner.
Best of success on selling your house,

You can ask them nicely to leave early, or offer some monetary compensation as an incentive, but............they will most likely be allowed to remain until their lease expires
