Built-Ins
Built-ins are considered items or structures that are permanently attached to a home. Examples of built-ins include appliances, fireplaces, attached garages, art niches, columns, domed ceilings and similar structural enhancements. Some items can be considered built-ins for one home and not for another. For example, appliances can be considered built-ins and ultimately convey with the home in one sale but not for another. Essentially, the seller decides whether or not an item that is not physically attached will actually convey with the property. During the negotiation phase of the sale, buyers can ask the seller to include the appliances or other items of interest in the sale price. It is up to the seller to allow these items to stay, and he or she may adjust the selling price to reflect the value of the items.
