    I am planning to sell my single family home tenanted investment properties located in 4 regions in Ontario, namely, Hamilton, Cambridge, Guelph and Kitchener. Do I need a special agent for this? Must the agent be local to the property as I have an agent from Durham region offering me a discounted rate to sell them. Any referral to investor's friendly agent will be appreciated. Lastly what tips do you have to get full cooperation of the tenants to ensure the maximum exposure of the home?

    I HIGHLY recommend selling your homes vacant even if you have to pay your tenants to leave tenanted homes are hard / agents prefer not to show them if they have other options and very rarely do they show well . You will get a lot more for them then the cost to get tenant out and few months of lost rent . Your ideal market should always be a owner occupied there is WAY more of them and they will typically pay more than a investor (unless you have investments specific fourplex /apartment ). They dont want to inherit your tenant I know a excellent agent i have personally used in Hamilton Would be happy to put you in touch if needed. You should work with a location specific high volume agent and typically those who offer lower commissions are not the agents you want to use as in most things in life you get what you pay for .
    Hope this helps!

    Use an Investor Focused Realtor to buy and sell your props. Not using one could cost you time and lots of $$.
    Remember that you get what you pay for generally.
    For Hamilton give Mr. Hamilton (Erwin Sweto) and Mark Loeffler a call.
