If you want a non-realty item to be there on closing day, you need to get it in writing. Because in Spring Texas real estate transactions verbal means nothing. Anything that’s not in writing becomes a he said she said. If you thought the sellers were going to leave the refrigerator, washer and dryer, or a wall mounted tv and you don’t have it in writing then don’t expect it to be there on closing day.
Refrigerators, washer and dryer, and wall mounted televisions are all personal items. Personal items are considered non-realty items and do not convey with the purchase of real estate. If you want the sellers of a Spring Texas house, to leave a refrigerator then secure their signatures on a non-realty items addendum or a bill of sale before closing day.
One more thing to remember – personal items don’t come with warranties. So if the wall mounted television goes out the day after closing, the sellers aren’t going to repair or replace it. You are on your own.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
