Personal property, on the other hand, is anything that can be moved, such as area rugs, curtains and some appliances - most often the refrigerator, washer and dryer.

Some items end up in a gray area, which is why it's important to work with your RealtorĀ® and be very specific about what you'd like to have stay with the home. You can further mitigate any surprises by doing a final walk-through before closing.
