Whatever your reasons there are several factors you should consider to help you understand exactly when to sell your investment property and how to achieve the highest sale result:


Your Neighborhood

Look around your neighborhood to get a sense of the state of the income property market. Are there many houses for sale currently? Have the "For Sale" signs been posted for a long time? Or are "Sold" signs going up very shortly after they go on the market. Pay attention to the activity going on around you. Timing may often be as important as location.


The Economy

Identify whether the general economic conditions are favorable to selling your real estate investment (look at mortgage rates, economic forecasts, etc.)


Rental Market

Identify whether there is still a strong rental market in your area to make your property attractive to another investor. How does your property compare to other rentals in the area? If you're not sure then go "apartment hunting" to see how you stack up.



Compare the overall real estate market in your area to other forms of investments. Assess the relative merits of purchasing your property vs. investing elsewhere. Income property buyers understand different types of investments and will put their money where it will work best. Put yourself in the purchaser's shoes. Know how your property stacks up by comparing it to other investment vehicles such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and money markets. Changes in the stock market may push more investors toward real estate and the demand for good properties with high rates of return will increase.
