Lenders don't like when a condo has a concentration of units owned by a single owner. It indicates a large number of rentals in the complex, more rentals and fewer primary residences mean there is less vested interest in the building overall - from an actuarial point of view, may not be a reality in your complex, but data indicates renters don't care for properties the same way resident owners do.

You need to change your marketing tactic and focus on cash buyers and investors with large down payments. Or perhaps you should consider holding onto the condo and using is as an investment/rental yourself. Are you working with a Realtor?
