Inclusions & Exclusions

Kaitlyn Barks Real Estate Leave a Comment

Does it stay or does it go?

Inclusions and exclusions can be a tricky point when it comes to buying or selling a home. We always encourage our sellers to make decisions early in the process about what items they plan to include in the sale of the home, and what items they would like to take with them. Similarly for buyers, we encourage them to pay attention or snap photos during the showing to any items in question. To help make the process as smooth as possible, check out this list from our FREE Seller Guide all about specific inclusions and exclusions!
