Give the tenant an incentive

Because the sale of a home is no easy undertaking for a tenant living in the property — think home buyer visits, home inspections, home improvements, etc. —  homeowners may end up having to offer the renter an incentive. Understandably not everybody wants to pay cash to a renter for any inconvenience caused during a home sale. But if there seems to be no way out of it, you can always offer a discount on rent, or promise a cash bonus once a sale goes through. Some even offer tenants a small fee for every home visit. Whatever your approach, make sure you get it in writing so that all parties are held accountable.
