#1 Key To Remember Once You've Sold Your Home

Congrats on selling your house! As you start packing up and preparing for your move, there's an important reminder I want to share with you. There are certain items in your house that you shouldn't be removing when you leave, as they may have been included in the agreement of purchase and sale. Let's talk about a few of these items that are attached to the wall.

First off, that custom mirror you have in the bathroom. It might be tempting to take it with you, especially if it holds sentimental value. However, if it was part of the agreement, it needs to stay put. It's important to review the terms of the agreement and identify any items that are considered fixtures and should remain in the house. Reach out to your realtor, they’ll confirm with you before you remove an item that should remain.

Another example is those lovely floating live edge wood shelves. If they are securely attached to the wall, they are likely considered fixtures and should stay with the house. These shelves add character and charm to your home, and the new owners will be expecting them to be there when they move in.

When it comes to items that are attached to the wall, it's crucial to make a clear distinction between what stays with the house and what you'd like to take with you. Communicate your intentions with the new owners and ensure there is agreement on what will be left behind.

Remember, the purpose of this reminder is to avoid any misunderstandings or conflicts with the new owners. It's important to respect the terms of the agreement and leave the house in the condition that was agreed upon.

So, as you start packing, take special attention to the items attached to the wall. Make a list of what stays and what goes, and communicate this with the new owners. By doing so, you'll ensure a smooth transition and maintain a positive relationship with the buyers.

Happy packing and best of luck with your move! #SoldMyHome #PackingMyHome #WhatToPackBeforeIMove #OakvilleRealtor
