If that's the case, you can ask your tenants to prepare for the home insurance agent visit (who is actually your realtor) to take great pictures (at least 25 pictures of inside, outside, neighborhood and street views to be put in the Multiple Listing System (MLS)). More pictures - more sales.
But, ask the tenants to be neat.
Then, when selling, have the buyers drive by (without disturbing the tenants message in the MLS),
and, if the like everything, the buyers can make an offer subject to preview.
This means that you first agree on the price and terms of the sale, then the property is shown to the buyers. If they change their mind after previewing the property, their escrow money is refunded.
If they like it, they proceed with the closing.
If priced correctly, your property will generate more interest and "traffic" amongst prospective buyers.
Make sure that your property is marketed extensively on the internet.

Do you think one of your tenants would be interested in purchasing it? With an FHA loan on a 2-unit property, your buyers can put 3.5% down and you can make a concession to cover closing costs. In some cases, you can apply past rents towards the down payment.
If you have any questions about it, feel free to call me.
As Marlene stated it is not an unsual request for any realtor that would want to show an income producing property (duplex etc) that it can viewed outside only and NOT to disturb tenants.
Once more interested then an apointment can be set up for an actual viewing of the units. At some point though the tenants will have to know.
Without knowing much about the units themself or how many bedrooms and baths in each unit, i have created a market analysis for you. Again this is just an approximate price since I have not viewed the property. I have provided a link below for your review.
At this time your would like price maybe un-realistic but again without viewing units and property it is just a guestimate at this point.
In this market things are selling but they must be priced right.
I would be happy to discuss this with you further, you may contact me at your convenience.
hope this helps in some way.

Your guestion needs lots of input from your accountant.
In this market, I suggest only from the Real Estate side, don't sell into this market because it is ugly.
You need to find a good local agent (I know a good one in Broward) to give you a CMA on the property so you know what you might get for selling the property. You might find the price the property will bring to be far below your 350k asking. Be sure the agent understands you need a REAL price.
You can always list at your needed price, the big question, will it sell.
