You have option but by all means find the right agent to help you! Your questions are well thought out and very good. Most agents will tell you if you do not plan on allowing the KOI pond to stay with the property then remove it before you start showings. The moment someone sees it they WILL want it....it's just how folks are geared.
Hot tub. Is it in good condition? Is your type of home one that is inviting to others from an entertainment value? That will be the real decision on keeping it or not.

You can write an offer contingient upon the sale of your home but if it is not under contract most RealtorsÂ® are recomending to their clients to reject that type of offer. Where are you planning on moveing to? I currently have 2 listings in Linedwald and both are under contract and set to close.

Contracts, laws, and market conditions vary by state and having a local professional will certainly give you the details you need.
To speak in general terms.
I suggest you get a Buyer agent to write the offer for you. This can also be the agent who will list you home. If they are in the same proximatly and the agent is both a selling and listing agent then you may want to consider the same agent to coordinate.
If the market is slow for sellers, you may be able to write an offer contingent upon a successful closing on your home. Usually a seller doesn't want to take the home off of market for a lower price while waiting for a buyer to sell their home. There is a strategy in this and your agent will assist you.
When selling your home, your agent will come and take a look and compare your home to your competition. In order for you to compete your listing agent will make suggestions on getting your home ready. Any items not included in the sale need to be stated up front and then agent in writing in the contract so that all parties are clear.
If you would like me to refer an agent to you drop me a note.
Have an amazing day!
