Many debates have been spurred by personal property vs real property left and/or removed from a home.
That mirror and vanity in the bathroom. The wardrobe in the bedroom they thought was built in. Do the appliances stay?
There's something your sellers may have removed long before you listed the home and you didn't even notice.
The fact is - these are important items and the FHA/VA appraiser have them on their checklists, so they should be on your pre-listing checklist as well. My suggestion is add them today.
What am I talking about already? Smoke alarms!! You know what I'm talking about. You can buy them by the box at any home improvement store, and for most homes a box will be sufficient.
They were taken down because someone couldn't make them stop chirpping, and they've never been replace - or missed. Until appraisal time. Then someone has to run out and buy them, and often there is a re-appraisal fee for the appraiser to come back out and make sure they actually exist.
Add a couple of carbon dioxide alarms as well and you'll be set. Nothing like $100 worth of items you should never be without to hold things up.
