There are many situations that may lead you to decide to sell your residential income property. Some are based on market conditions and the fulfillment of your investment goals while others may be based on a change of lifestyle (moving to a job in a new city, lack of time to devote to the continued well-being of the property, etc.) Some possible selling motivators include:



Factors beyond your control such as a deteriorating neighborhood or continual vacancies may be affecting the profitability of your investment. Or, you may simply decide after a while that you don't enjoy the process of managing a property. Some people just don't like having to respond to tenants concerns and feel a sense of inconvenience. If you have become uncomfortable it may be time to move on.


Changes in Life Situation


You may be at the age when it's time to retire and just relax with no one to attend to but yourself. Or you may feel after a few years of owning an income property that it has served its purpose. You may now prefer to move on to a single-family home. If so, the project has been worthwhile and successful in its time so be proud of you accomplishment.


Profit Realization

It may be the right time to cash out your investment. You may need access to the capital that is in your property. If your area is in a hot market and prices are higher than ever you may be in a good position to sell. Before you do be sure you are aware of the tax implications of selling.
