“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”
– John D. Rockefeller
We don’t like to encourage sellers to list their properties for sale when we know that most sellers will be happier and wealthier long-term by leasing real estate as a rental investment instead of selling. However, there may be a time where it makes sense to list and sell owner-occupied or investment properties. Our advisors can assist homeowners and investors with making a thoughtful decision whether to hold, list, seller finance, or hire a professional property manager to do the day-to-day rental management.
3 OPTIONS TO CONSIDER BEFORE selling OWNER-OCCUPIED OR INVESTMENT PROPERTY
HIRE A PROPERTY MANAGER
If you choose to list and sell your property or rental investment, we welcome the opportunity to work with you. As a full-service real estate brokerage, we work with homeowners, owner-occupied commercial properties, rental investors, and institutions to market and sell real property. No matter the type of seller or reason for selling, working with professionals can make the whole process easier.
what type of real estate seller are you?
Our advisors welcome the opportunity to assist you with a SUCCESSFUL exit strategy.
Rental Investor Sellers
Rental investors may find that the value of present equity outweighs predicted market appreciation and thus determine to sell. Investors can sell outright for a lump-sum or decide to seller finance. Choosing to seller finance has the potential for the investor to earn a steady income stream while maintaining a conservative investment secured with real estate.
Tired Property Sellers
Have you rented out, lived in, or otherwise owned the same property for too long? Does the property need upgrading or repairs? Our team can list and sell the property outright or through seller financing. Seller financing may result in a higher overall selling price, earn you a better return than many other investments, and can provide a secured income stream over time.
It isn’t easy to manage real estate in a completely different state and give it the attention it needs. For owners of a second home or rental investment out-of-state, selling the property can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. However, the most significant benefit is walking away with the cash-in-hand and avoiding time and expenses involved with owning real estate out-of-state, such as maintenance, repairs, and property management.
Having a new baby is a major life change that often necessitates more space. One solution is to list and sell the current property and move into something larger. However, expecting parents may want to keep their existing home as a rental investment and buy a new home. This is a great way to earn passive income, build equity, and potentially reduce tax obligations.
Those who inherit property often struggle in determining whether selling or renting is the best choice. As a licensed real estate brokerage, we provide the resources to help beneficiaries and heirs make an informed decision. Our team can help sell the bequeathed property or create a rental investing plan that can help earn long-term income over time.
Starting a new job in a different state (or country) involves many decisions on what to do with the property to be left behind. We help professionals on the move determine whether selling their property outright, financing their property to a buyer, or hiring a property manager and leasing their property is the right choice. We take care of the rest.
What's The Best Option?
RentalInvesting.com provides three major options for property owners looking to profit off of their real estate. Owners can sell outright for cash, finance all or part of the sale of the property, or lease the property for passive cash flow. Seller financing is a great middle-ground between an outright sale and a lease that allows property owners to monetize their real property asset without the stresses involved in leasing.
