One of the most important facets of real estate is ironing what you will keep in your Encinitas home for sale. Certain aspects of your Encinitas home for sale will be negotiable and certain items you will want to keep, so this guide will help you know what you can expect to keep and what will go with the house.
One of the most crucial first steps is knowing whether or not you will be moving close by or far away. If you are moving to a new home in the same area as your home for sale it may be beneficial to move and keep some items, while if you are moving far away it may not be cost-effective to transport larger items across the country.
It is imperative that you inform your Realtor of any items that you intend to keep that are attached to the home, such as appliances or lighting so that they can inform potential buyers of this fact.
Here are some of the items you need to consider when selling your homes in Encinitas:
- Appliances – Typically appliances are an item that the seller would be allowed to remove. Sellers may opt to include the appliances to entice buyers to pay the list price or as a negotiation tool. Some buyers may want to install their own appliances in the home, depending on the age or features of the dishwasher, refrigerator, washing machine, dryer, etc.
- Lighting Fixtures – It may be that certain lighting fixtures (chandeliers, pendant light, etc.) may reflect your personal style and fit the aesthetics of your new home and are items you want to take with you. Typically these fixtures are to remain with the home, so if you intend on taking them with you you will need to inform your Encinitas real estate agent.
- Window Treatments – Given that window treatments are often designed specifically for the home and for the window that they will be treating it may be unlikely that you will want to take them with you. Leaving window treatments in the home will also add value and act as a selling point for potential buyers as well.
