selling a rental property

We've got 3 rental properties (all single-family starter homes) that are in a state we moved from 3 years ago. We'd like to sell them. All are rented, with reasonably stable renters, none of whom are in a position to buy them. None of them is well staged to sell (they're rentals and show accordingly).

Should we go ahead and put them on the market while occupied? Or should we boot out the renters after sufficient notice, spruce up and stage the homes? It's a trade-off between looking nice (and hopefully selling faster/for more) and collecting rent, and I'm not sure which is the smarter decision.
