Open Houses and Selling Tenanted Condos in Downtown Vancouver  


Ian Watt video blogs about how doing open houses at tenanted properties are probably not the best to showcase the condos as tenants don't always have the seller's best interest in mind, also it could be a strain on the tenant, owner and realtor relationship.

Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon it's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. Please keep in mind when were working in Downtown Vancouver about 50% of the properties that were selling are tenanted and half an owner occupied. That's the way it works dealing with tenanted property is a little bit difficult. Obviously doing agents opens or open houses are very very difficult because well first of all they don't always show the best and second of all they don't really want to cooperate all the time. So what we always do we try to show up the schedule that works best for the tenants and then they don't get thick off that will calling them all the time and an occupying their place on their days off. So keep in mind we do do open houses but generally not for tenantive properties. It's just an inconvenience for the tenants and it doesn't show the property in the best light. My name is Ian Watt and if you have any questions. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
