Taking It With You

January 7, 2009

Before you list your home for sale, take a careful look around. Are there some items you will want to take with you? There may be a dining room chandelier that has been in your family for three generations, a ceiling fan in the master bedroom, or the bookcases in the den that look built-in but are not.

Normally all fixtures are passed on to the new owners when a house is sold. This usually includes any fixtures attached to walls or ceilings and, in some areas, all major appliances that are installed in the house. If you have fixtures that you don't want to give up, tell your agent what you want excluded from the agreement at the time you list your property for sale.

Even better, if it is convenient, it is best to remove any light fixtures or ceiling fans you plan to take with you and replace them before the property is shown to prospective buyers. List all items that are not being sold with the house on your home fact sheet to ensure that they will not become an issue when a buyer makes an offer.
