I sold couple of duplexes last year with tenants in them..
I made sure they were on month to month lease.
I didn't let my agent put any for sale sign.
Only when I had a firm offer I notified tenants that there is possibility that this home will be sold and I need to get inspection and appraisal done.
One of my tenant was taking advantage of the covid situation
And did not pay rent for a few months, I also know he could give wrong unneeded info to the inspector..
Gave all the tenants 24 hours notice of inspection and appraisal and I was there during the whole process. If the inspector had any questions I would answer and not the tenants.
My tenants have been with me for 12 to 15 years, bottom line it is your properties you decide to sell or not.. if it high maintenance properties and tenants then I would sell --72.180.xxx.xxx
