What personal items remain in your Tulsa home for sale?

Our state contract clearly specifies what items remain in your Tulsa home for sale, such as window treatments, light fixtures, fireplace inserts, built-in appliances, pool equipment and more. When we list your Tulsa home for sale, we ask if there are any items you would like to exclude, such as a chandelier for which you may have sentimental value. Family Playing Pool

But what about the pool table and the mounted flat-screen television? It's expensive to move a pool table and it needs to be re-leveled. And that mounted flat-screen television is the perfect size in the perfect spot. You might discuss those items with your Realtor before you list your Tulsa home for sale, because your potential Buyer is likely to ask for those items.

Typically we put in the "Realtor Remarks" section of MLS (Multiple Listing Service) that "items a, b and c are negotiable." It would save a little time crafting an offer on your Tulsa home for sale if it were spelled out that the pool table can or can't remain with the house.

What personal items remain in your Tulsa home for sale?

Buyers naturally fall in love with how your home is furnished, and that's a big part of the reason they chose to purchase your home. If you are downsizing and would like to sell some of your furnishings to your Buyer, leave a note in a table tent as to what's available and at what price.

Beware that Lenders do not want to see a list of couches and furniture in the real estate contract. They don't object to Buyers asking for a pool table or refrigerator to remain with the house, but the real estate contract is for real property - and the strict definition of that. If furnishings are to be negotiated, that should be done through a separate supplemental agreement.

So look through your Tulsa home for sale before you put it on the market and discuss with your Realtor what items you suspect a Buyer might ask for and whether or not they may be negotiable. If you want to take the pool table with you, state that upfront to avoid confusion!
