You don’t hide it and let them just find out about it later. You inform them of what your plans are up front.
You get a key to allow you to inspect and show the property if the home is vacant. If it’s occupied you make arrangements with them to allow you to show the property. You can offer them tickets to a movie or give them gift certificates to go out to eat or what ever while you’re showing the property. It’s better if you can get them to leave the house so they aren’t standing around and end up talking with your potential tenant buyers.
None of this should be a problem if the seller’s are MOTIVATED to sell.
