    If the subject property has an underlying mortgage that will not be paid off, check you loan documents to make sure that such a sale will not trigger a Due on Sale Clause, which could cause a nasty situation for you and the buyer. One advantage of selling an investment property in this manner is that capital gains can be spread out over several years.
