An instalment sale may be better than renting out your property if you can't sell
Are you thinking of renting out your property because you just can't sell? An Instalment Sale may be a better route to go.
Firstly, going this route you are likely to obtain a better price and achieve a quicker sale than you would if selling conventionally, even though you will only receive your payments over a period of time, typically 5 years. This is a particularly suitable option where you have a sizable bond which you can leave in place, and where you also don't plan to immediately buy another property.
Secondly, when compared with renting out the property, you won't have the worries of a typical landlord as the buyer is responsible for all maintenance and associated costs, all rates and levies payments, and is also highly incentivised never to default on the monthly instalment payments. In short, your monthly cash flow will be significantly higher than would be the case had you rented out the property.
