Can Tenants Affect the Sale of My Apartment?

Ultimately, yes. Tenants restrict access to your apartment, which makes it hard to bring prospective buyers through whenever it suits them. By limiting the times buyers can view the apartment, the number of potential buyers reduces.

Tenants may also have their own furniture and belongings in your apartment, which can clash with or work against the style and design of your apartment. This can make it particularly challenging to attractively market and promote your apartment to new buyers.

Of course it’s not in your best interests to leave your apartment vacant. We understand this. That’s why we have strategies in place to account for tenanted apartments.
