Good morning Lynard,
Thanks for reaching out for the answers to your questions. I would not feel comfortable advising you in either direction until doing further research on your properties, their location and their value. It would also depend on the amount of work that needs to be done and the type of buyer you want to attract, I personally would want to view the properties and then give you my professional opinion as to what direction you should take after having heard a little more about your situation. I am a Certified Distressed Property Expert and qualified to move you forward towards the best solution for you. Feel free to contact me anytime.
