List it with someone who has a plan to market it effectively to investors, and who is NOT waiving the high price at you. Sell it yourself if you like, but.... understand and be ready for low offers. investors are going to low-ball you anyway wiht wholesale pricing, and if selling yourself, will deduct (my) realtors' commission from their offer, and justify it to you that way. the thing to remember is most investors these days are more expereinced in this kind of negotiation, than are most sellers.
DO NOT enter into any contract without deposit monies in hand, which default to you, if the buyer does not settle as of the specified date. The deposit monies should be enough to keep the buyer from walking away or not closing, or stalling you indefinitely. cash investors can afford more than a $1000 pittance.
DO NOT enter into any contract that does not obligate the buyer to settle quickly and ON A SPECIFIED DATE.
DO NOT enter into any contract for cash, that is not accompanied by buyers PROOF OF FUNDS. or mortgage
No realtor (worth the name) representing you would allow any of these things (and plenty more) to happen.
if it is in good shape.... then you are blessed. if the tennant is good, and keeps the place up, then doubly so. if the tennant is a mess, then mabye you end that lease, clean it and sell it empty. best is with a good coorating tennant, worst is with a hostile tennant living like a pig. closer to best is neat clean and empty. leases ought to be in wriiting, and at market value, otherwise.... not so attractive for the new owner,. of coursethe tennant paying 25% under market whose rent has not gone up in 5 years wants to stay !
now my advertisement for myself. i've successfully completed this kind of transaction quite a bit, and know the area. if you would like a more formal opinion, call, email, text
