ADVENTURES IN REAL ESTATE

REAL PROPERTY

Every day as a REALTOR is a new adventure and a learning experience.

Today I negotiated a TRAMPOLINE!!!!!!

A Purchase and Sales Contract is written to include all Real Property.

Real Property is defined as property that is fastened down or an integral part of the homes structure, such as built in bookcases, lighting fixtures, trees etc.. It does not include refrigerators, washers, dryers, potted plants or TRAMPOLINES.

My client/buyer made an offer on a home that was accepted. She included in her offer a home inspection contingency. This home has a large TRAMPOLINE in the backyard which my client had asked for at the time of the offer but was denied.

During the home inspection it was discovered that work needed to be done to fix some plumbing problems. My client got an estimate from a local contractor and we went back to the REALTOR representing the seller and asked for a price reduction. The seller in return offered a smaller price reduction and the TRAMPOLINE.

My client jumped for joy and accepted the sellers counter offer.
