If the tenant is good, keeps the place clean and pays the rent on time, leave them be. I would consider it unfair to evict them.
Once you have the deal sewn up you could offer to sell to the tenant first, if they turn it down offer it for sale to the public.
Then sell with the tenant in place as an investment property.
If the tenant is a bum and doesn’t pay rent, start eviction immediately before you even take possession.
