When selling a home you need to decide if you want to include appliances or not. Some buyers won’t purchase a home if they know appliances are not included. Either they deem it a necessity or don’t want to spend anymore money.

Usually, any appliances that were built into the kitchen or have a cut out for them stay there. This typically means the oven and dishwasher. It’s often common to not have a microwave included in the kitchen. The fridge, washer, and dryer are included upon request since they are considered personal property.
