Picture this: you see property while house hunting and instantly fall in love with it. Clearly, the ambiance created by the seller has tugged at your heartstrings, and as such, you’ll pay top dollar to make sure it’s your home. Sadly, you won’t get everything you see when you go to an open house. Professional real estate stagers stage a lot that you see in the property. And so, if there is anything specific you’d like included in your property’s sale, you must inform your real estate agent. Let’s get into the top five things not included in your property’s purchase, so you know what to expect.
Stainless Steel Appliances
Shocked? We know! Most properties sales do not include significant appliances. It’s easy to assume they are because you see them when you visit the property. But if there are any stainless-steel appliances you would like, you can put them in writing. You must mention the specific brand and model you see in front of you to ensure you get it.
It is generally the norm for most sellers to leave the window coverings to their new owners, but there are cases in which the decorative drapes are excluded from the sale if they have been custom-made for the seller. If the drapes you see are important to you and you would like them to be a part of the property sale, try to ensure that your real estate agent specifies that you would like the existing window coverings in writing.
Anything you see in the property before the purchase is likely to go with the seller once the property sale has gone through. If you think a particular chair or a mirror is appropriate for the property already in there, be sure to put an offer down to the seller. It is better to put this in writing to ensure that you get it once the seller approves it.
Television and Media Room Tech
Many of the properties you will see when scouring for a property of your own will be inhabited by real families. As such, they will be equipped with everything a family needs to live comfortably, and part of that includes Mediaroom technology and television sets. These will not necessarily be included in the sale of the property. Any items you would like to purchase within the property itself that you are buying must be put in writing and be agreed upon by the seller himself. There are many instances where buyers have been frustrated because they expect something to be included in their property sale that isn’t included. It helps to have your expectations adjusted appropriately before you purchase the property.
Generally, when you purchase a property, all the fixtures and furnishings will come attached to it. This includes the bathroom and kitchen fixtures, to be more specific. When you are buying a property that is either distressed or is in foreclosure, it is likely that the previous owner we remove all these fixtures, drapes, lights, and anything they can potentially take before the property sale has gone through. It helps to know how much you will get versus how much you have to replace any move into a property.
