What's Included When You Sell Your Home in Danbury,CT?

Real Estate Agent with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty CT RES.0783448

When you sell your home in the Greater Danbury,CT area with me, I require my clients to fill out an inclusion/exclusion sheet. This a document that spells out what you as the homeowner plan to leave for the home buyer purchasing the home, what you plan on taking with you. You can also list what items you would like to be negotiable for, depending on what the overall offer is for the house. Items listed on this sheet include appliances, window treatments, lighting fixture, sheds or play-sets, fireplace tools and more-some of the items may not even apply to your property. I request the home buyers to sign this form as part of their offer, so at the last minute they won't come back complaining that something was excluded. This also means that you as the home seller are obligated to deliver what you what filled out on this document, otherwise the buyer may come back and negotiate. I request my home seller clients to fill this out that the time of the listing, when other paperwork is completed, so it can be attached to the listing for buyers to see & for their real estate agents to access when their clients want to make an offer on your home.

If you are thinking of selling your home, please contact me-Jonathan Hall with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty in Danbury,CT. Direct phone number is 203.417.0523 or send me an email to set up a meeting. I look forward to seeing you.

Jonathan good job on spelling all this out.  Buyers and Sellers often do not understand this.  Also lender are going to want the sales contract to say that these items convey at no value.  Lenders only finance the property, and not appliances.

I actually didn’t know certain things about Connecticut. Thanks for the education, as I am located in the tri-state area at least part of the time. :)

Having sellers spell out what is, and what is not, included is a great way to complete the listing information Jonathan Hall, Leaving little to 'the imagination' will make the sale smoother for sure.

Thank you for sharing,

That is so smart, Jonahan! I do review the fixture list with them but, actually having them use a checklist is definitely a smart approach.

That's a good idea. I discuss the items with the sellers, but I like the idea of having a checklist they complete and sign off on.

List of exclusitons is very helpful for buyers and also remove the confusion as to what's included and what's not.  Tagging items that do not stay will be best idea

Good morning Jonathan Hall ,

A good idea to have a checklist up front. Makes sense to have everyone on the same page. Clarity in what is conveying helps both the buyer and seller.

Hello Jonathan- - - details matter and can definitely vary by location and even by specific property.  Making sure things are clear upfront is a smart business decision.

Jonathan Hall It's a good idea to have everything spelled out up front.  The worst thing is arguing over the dining room fixture or whatever the day of closing.
