Buying a home in Los Angeles can be a daunting experience, but with the help of your real estate agent, the process can be made easier.
Do you know what comes with the home by default? Did you know that you can ask for anything in your purchase offer? You should certainly not be afraid to ask for that lovely chandelier in the dining room, or the patio furniture that just finishes off the garden, or the curtains. They were after all made for the house.
However, if you don’t ask, you may not get. Sellers don’t always know what to leave and what to take, so it can also be helpful to put everything in the contract. Then there will be no confusion at the end.
Fixtures and fittings stay. Personal property goes. If you see a flat screen TV, or audio equipment attached to the walls, don’t assume that you are going to inherit it. Unless they are actually fixed to the property, the Seller can take them. This would include items attached to the walls with brackets. Those are removable. You can ask for them, but they are not automatically yours.
Also, to be sure; ask for the appliances you want, even if you think they are fixed. Better to be safe than sorry.
In the case of the chandelier, the Seller may take the chandelier you had your eye on and replace it.
Buying a home in Los Angeles? Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. You may be surprised and get it!
