If this mobile home is on a sellable lot and being treated as real property then the furnishings that are included in the sale have no actual value and should have been itemized separately on another addendum. Furnishings (couches, beds, tables, chairs, lamps, pictures, hutches, TV's) generally mean furniture and not personal possessions (dishes, flatware, appliances, towels, toiletries, supplies, art deco, vases, sheets, clothing). This can get quite messy if an itemized list is not done.
I suggest a list be compiled immediately and agreed on before you close.

Web Access to MLS:
It certainly would be a good question for your Realtor, I had a buyer who walked because the seller took the furniture out, we requested that they bring it back, they did not and would not ...so when all is said and done it still belongs to the property owner and they own it and can do what they want maybe the sale of the home is not as important as the mementos.
If a Realtor were involved, there would be a specific listing of items that would convey--chairs, tables, beds, etc. Including, perhaps, kitchen items, ceramic figurines, etc. Whatever the seller was willing to sell in conjunction with the home.
I'm guessing that a Realtor may not be involved in this transaction.
Realistically, "furnished" generally means the larger items. It usually doesn't include personal items and collectibles (such as the ceramic figurines). Still, as noted above, it could. It's negotiable.
So, what do you do?
If you've got a Realtor, let him/her handle it. If not, meet with the owner and make up a complete list of what conveys and what doesn't. Be detailed and specific. For instance, don't just note "kitchen refrigerator." Write down the serial number (if you want that one) so that the owner doesn't replace the existing refrigerator with another one.
Hope that helps.
You need a list of all items of furniture included in the purchase. You should have this list in writing. This does not include personal property, unless specified. Do you have a Realtor? Get the list in writing and then see if you need to do some renegotiating.
