Dealing With Tenants that Are Stressing You Out

Getting Bad Tenants out of Your Home

If the property you’re looking to get rid of is currently occupied by tenants, the game changes.

If the tenants are especially difficult, you'll have to work hard to make sure the sale of your property goes as smoothly as possible.

You’ll want to prevent damage being done to your property, and do all you can to avoid a complicated eviction process.

The method you choose should depend on how you believe your tenants will best respond.

You’ll need to take the right attitude to avoid things escalating into something much worse.

Review your lease and the terms to see if you have grounds for eviction due to their violations.

You’ll need to be firm enough without being overbearing.

Difficult tenants may respond better to “cash for keys” motivation.

Always save complicated legal processes for when they’re absolutely necessary

Also keep in mind that some Real Estate Investors are also able to save you the hassle of any of the above by taking on the responsibility of your tenants when purchasing your home.

In other words, they'll buy you outright - tenants included.

Fixing the Biggest Issues Your Property Has

Fixing Major Problems to Your Rental Property

If things are wrecked, you may have a hard time finding someone else who’s willing to deal with the mess.

Things like bad roofs and shoddy plumbing can be very off-putting to some investors or property flippers.

Investors are often willing to purchase fixer-uppers, but there are some that won’t go near properties that are ransacked.

If they do, they won’t be willing to give you nearly enough to cover your investment. You have a lot to lose.

In times of desperation, it may seem like a relief to take a rock-bottom offer and just move on, but you can get much more.

First, take an inventory of the big things that need to be done, and come up with a budget for serious repairs.

Walking away tired is one thing, but walking away tired and broke is an entirely different ballgame.
