Selling a rental or starter home

Posted by equinecpa (My Page) on

I have an entry level home for sale very affordable $54,000. It is in an area of rental and starter homes and is currently empty.

Is it easier to sell an investment property when it is rented or empty? What is your experience? I have some first time home buyers interested and don't want to lose that market by putting a renter in...but don't want to miss on the investors because it is empty...Anyone have any experience with selling rentals?

RE: Selling a rental or starter home

If you put a renter in there on a year lease, forget about any home buyers looking at it.
rental properties are worth more if there is a good renter already in place.
You can market to both by putting in a short term renter.
