One of the real positives of selling your property with a sitting tenant is the ability to lengthen the tenant's stay indefinitely. Almost all of Portolio's sales are to property investors and this new owner will become the landlord, with little or no change to the tenant's situation.
Do I need to remove any furniture, fittings and equipement?
No you don't. When a property investor buys a tenanted property, they are also bound to buy the furniture, fittings and equipment. It's actually one of the positives for the buyer, as any furniture, fittings and equipment are included in their purchase price.
Do I need to decorate or do anything else to the property before selling?
No you don't need to do that at all. IF you decided to end the tenancy, and sell a vacant property, then yes you would be advised to spend some money and time to make the flat "ready for the market". You would also usually be advised to remove all the furniture, etc.
Selling tenanted property means you don't have any of this hassle or expense.
What sale price will I be able to get by selling my property with a tenant in situ?
Our typical sale price is close to the surveyor's property valuation. We aim for a fair price, not deal of the century for the buyer, and not way above value either. We will always get you the best sale price possible.
Do you sell property portfolios?
Yes, we sell individual properties and portfolios of different sizes. All of our portfolio sales are sold off-market, i.e. not on any website, and sometimes we can sell an individual flat or house in that same off-market style.
