Selling properties in Park City, Utah can be a complicated symphony filled with many problematic details that are seen by many Realtors throughout the country. However, because we are a resort town many of the properties we market for sale in Park City, Utah can present other issues. Many of the homes in the Deer Valley, Old Town, Kimball Junction and Canyons areas are with property managers and may be rented out to Park City visitors on a nightly basis. Because of this, showing a home or condominium can be extremely difficult during the ski season. Compounding the problem is many of the buyers who are interested in Park City properties are only in town for a short-period of time. As you can imagine, much of this time is spent enjoying the multitude of local amenities. This means buyer’s agents may only have a short window in which to tour their buyers through the properties that interest them.
Throughout the years we have been asked to help sell homes that are occupied by long-term tenants. This can become problematic when showing or attracting an offer for a home. If the renter is under a lease a new owner would have to honor that lease, which will limit the pool of potential buyers. Unless the new owner is an investor or willing to wait until the lease expires the home will be a tough sell. It might be harder to rent as well because a potential tenant won’t want to sacrifice their “quiet enjoyment” with showings even if they are month to month. If you have any questions Team Schlopy strongly recommends that you check with your attorney on renter’s rights.
