Selling your home April 22, 2022

Should I include the appliances in the sale of my home?

This is such a good question, and it’s something that a lot of sellers wonder about. Do the appliances in your home go to the buyer or should you take them?

As the seller, you’re free to take anything that’s not permanently attached to the property. But buyers often expect appliances to be included–and if they’re not, it could deter potential buyers.

Generally, all of the appliances in the kitchen should stay with the home, except for countertop microwaves.

But the laundry appliances tend to depend on your local market. Ask your agent and look around at other listings to see if sellers include their washer and dryer with the house or if they take them.

Regardless of what you choose to do, make sure that it’s clear to potential buyers what stays and what goes.
