If the chandelier is 'low hung' meaning the opportunity for a real connect with the noggin of a citizen, there MUST be a big table beneath it.

No table? Have prospective buyer wear the yellow hard hat AND sign a waiver. I did this on a foreclosure and the results were unexpected.

If a house is of such quality to be chandelier worthy, it WILL be staged.

Just left such a house yesterday. Those chandeliers were MAGNIFICENT!

I have greater concern with the 8 ft ceiling and the paddle fan.

I think that these can look great. It depends on the type of chandelier though. If it is too big, then it might be annoying to have hung low. It also depends on where it is located. http://www.alexdeelighting.com/chandeliers

Chandeliers should be able to be raised fairly easily by adjusting your chain length

I think that low hung chandeliers are fine if you have an appropriate table, otherwise they aren't good. If you have to watch out for your head it's a problem. Personally, I would like a low hung chandelier, but it all depends on if I can get the table I want. http://www.electrolight.ca

Because there can be no arguments from either seller or buyer if you just swap out the fixtures before listing. Life is much easier without arguments.

Jim, so why does that mean it's easier to eliminate the question? Just curious.

Either - the seller can identify the item as not transferring.
If not identified, it would depend if the fixture is merely plugged in and hanging from a hook or hardwired and bolted to the structure.

Easier to just eliminate the question by replacing them with other fixtures before you show the property if it's an issue for the seller!!!
