Newsflash: Raising rent on current tenant

I am buying a three family home with one unit occupied by an older couple paying about $250 less than the going rate for the unit. I close next week and am considering raising the rent on them but am not sure if it’s worth it. They’ve been there for years and pay on time sooo I guess I’m asking 1. What’s some of your experience with this and 2. Should I raise it immediately or can I put it off a few months to just get the other unit rented before I risk them giving me a hard time
