The bank has continuously betrayed the owner starting with refusing to do a modification.
The seller is attempting to rake back anything of value they invested in the property.
Be aware, they will walk away from this transaction with only the lint in their pockets.
When you do the final walk through, and the shutters are not there, will you refuse to close?
This is the outcome you could face. So, do what needs to be done to get to the closing table without distress. As others have stated, the seller can not profit and you, the seller, all the agents involved, including their brokers, will sign documents swearing no 'behind the curtain' deals were made under penalty of.....something or the other.
You are in the 'Wild, Wild, West of Real Estate' where anything can and does happen.
You are working with sellers, emotionally strained, who have been continuously betrayed, disregarded, abused and unceasingly harassed by everyone. Express some understanding by turning towards and watch what happens.
The answer to your question, "What is the street value?" ZERO.
What is the value attached to those windows, 'Approximately $200 per window.
Raking back a $12,000 investment in shutters is understandable, but desperate. Try reasoning.
this the real shutter made from bass solid wood and nice moldings
take the sizes with x h in 3 places and the smaller is the size .

So the bottom line will be since it was not excluded on the contract, its staying with the house, correct?
Offer them a token $500 as a show of good faith and some willingness to negotiate (shutters can be very pricey)...and if they won't accept it, then just write the offer for the property without the shutters. You may be surprised if they leave them behind. But if they don't then you can choose your own window covers
here's my negotiation strategy: "our offer is contingent on all the plantation shutters staying with the house... period."
First, did the Sellers EXCLUDE the shutters from the sale as a condition of accepting your offer?
Para 8(B)2 of the purchase contract covers these as items included in the sale.
