Selling Your House? Here's What You Should Leave Behind July 10, 2018

Selling Your House? Here's What You Should Leave Behind, Red Wing, Minnesota

Selling your house means packing up all of your stuff and moving on to the next chapter of your life, but do you need to take everything with you? Appliances and other items may not technically be attached to the house, but they’re sometimes included in the sale. What about plants and other fixtures? Understanding what you can take and what you should leave behind will help keep your buyers happy and avoid conflicts down the road.

What You Should Leave After Selling Your House

Anything That’s Nailed Down

Built-in bookcases, cabinets, and anything else attached to the walls are usually included in the sale, even if you installed it yourself. This also includes wall-to-wall carpeting and maybe even your garage shelves if they weren’t explicitly excluded from the sale. If removing it would leave holes that need to be repaired and the buyer has already seen them, it’s best to assume they go with the house.

Plants & Landscaping

selling your houseYou might have spent years tending those rose bushes, but if they were there when the buyer made an offer, they’ll probably expect to have them. It’s best to leave Mother Nature alone and treat anything in the ground as a fixture of the house.

Light Fixtures & Window Treatments

You might have changed the light fixtures when you moved in, but if the buyer saw them, plan on leaving them behind. The same goes for curtains, blinds, rods, and other window treatments. If they’re important to you, make sure the buyers know they aren’t included when you’re negotiating over price.
