Of course you can make an offer on just the home, requesting for the seller to remove the furniture. If you are financing the home, one the sales contract, you want to make sure that it does not mention that the home is being sold furnished. If it says in the contract that the home is being sold furnished, it will create a problem with obtaining financing, because the underwriter/financer will want to assign a value to the furnishings and will want to subtract that value out of the purchase price and only finance the value of the home, not the value of the home and furnishings. If you do want to purchase a home furnished, a separate 'Bill-of-Sale' will need to be filled out. This is an agreement between the buyer and seller to transfer possession of furnishings for a stated cost, which could be $0.00. Let me know if you have any further questions about this.
