The seller took the kitchen appliances, even though they were listed on the MLS.I recently represented a seller that had offered to let the kitchen appliances convey with the home. When the offer came in, it was substantially lower than the asking price and included a home warranty, the washer and dryer, for the seller to insure FHA approval, and for the seller to pay the buyer's pre-paids and closing costs. The buyer did not ask for the kitchen appliances. Because the negotiated price was lower than the asking price, the seller took the appliances when she moved out. The buyer was furious when she did her final walk through, stating that because they were listed on the original MLS, they were to stay.Buyers, if you negotiate away from the written listing, make sure you add EVERYTHING that you wish to convey with the home. Ranges, refrigerators, washers and dryers are personal property. Outdoor sheds that are not bolted to concrete slabs are negotiable items. A seller does not have to leave them unless it is stated in the contract and agreed upon by both parties. The only exception to that is if a buyer comes in with an offer that matches the sellers asking done to the last detail. When any contract goes into negotiation, you are starting from scratch.This is true in Illinois, anyway.May 05 2011 - Decatur00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
