With significant sums about to change hands, last-minute negotiations can turn into a tug of war over what comes with a property and what doesn’t.
This is why I guide my Sellers…if it’s something you really want to keep, remove it NOW, before you list the home, so there is no confusion as to what will, or will not stay in the home. "Oh, but we don’t want to dismantle our home until we sell it." I reply, "Yes, it was your home. It’s how a house for sale. You will pack up your memories and move them to the next one. But for now, this is a house we need to sell."
