You rented your house to a tenant, but now you want to sell it.  Listing a tenant-occupied home can present special challenges. How this is dealt with will often determine if it will be a smooth process or an adversarial nightmare. And avert you a law suit or even criminal charges.

Listing and selling your tenant-occupied home or condo can present special challenges to you as the landlord-owner and for me as your listing real estate agent.

How we both initially deal with the tenant or tenants will often determine if it will be a smooth process or an adversarial nightmare.

You see Tenants have rights. Violating those rights, could result in a lawsuit and even criminal charges.

But landlord have rights too!

The critical key is knowing the rules. The secret is to always remember to be respectful of the people who’ve built their life and memories in the home you’re now listing. Always show compassion, empathy and understanding.

When you combine both, it’s the success formula. It’s not always about money – in fact, it’s the best way to save money.

So when you are ready to list and sell your tenant-occupied property, lets get together and I’ll share with you the proven successful strategies about how to sell it and move on.
