Don’t assume that everything you see while touring a house comes with a home purchase. From furniture and decor to appliances and outdoor equipment, sellers will likely take much (if not all) of their personal property with them when they move. It’s up to the buyers to spell out in the contract exactly what they want and don’t want to be included in a home purchase. While many obvious items (think: built-in bookshelves and hardware) are typically included in a home purchase, many others are not. This is why it’s so important for buyers to consider every aspect of a home before buying it – not just the pretty furniture inside. Make sure to work with a seasoned Realtor who can write (and review) a contract that meets your needs. The last thing you want is to walk into your new home on moving day only to realize that half the appliances are missing. Curious what comes with the house when you buy it? Below, we’ve included a list of what is and isn’t included in a home purchase.
