Should I sell at 75 and if so how should I go about it?

I always said I’d sell my small portfolio of 4 terraced houses, situated in a Northwest town when I reach the age of 75. I’m nearly 73 now, but thinking I should sell now, as the market seems right.

Each of my houses is tenanted with good tenants who have indicated that they are there for the long term, one already entering a 6th year. Rental yields are fairly good, but as house prices rise unless rents increase (fairly substantially) yields will drop. Ideally, I’d want to sell the properties tenanted.

I would be grateful for any responses from members on this forum to my queries/concerns:
– Should I sell as a portfolio or individually;
– Untenanted;
– Use an agent, if so a high street one or a “specialist” buy-to-let selling agent and if so where do I find one?;
– Selling property can be a messy and drawn out business, something I am not looking forward to, how best can this be minimised?

Any tips, advice, experiences would be welcomed.

Mike

Hello
I have a portfolio of 11 properties in Bristol & Chepstow. I am looking to sell some of the portfolio. The properties are all tenanted with good tenants. I would be only interested at selling at full market value, if this is of interest to an investor.
