You are asking this question in the Maine section so I will answer specific to Maine custom. It may vary state to state.
Kitchen appliances usually but not always convey. Washer and dryer may or may not but it will be specified on the listing sheet. Wood stoves and TV's attached to the wall may or may not and must be specified on listing sheet and in the offer. Sheds are considered personal property but usually convey. Curtain rods and blinds are considered fixtures and usually convey. Curtains may or may not and should be specified. It is usually assumed that anything attached, such as towel racks, is staying.
Hope this helps.

When you sell a home based on a Warranty Deed, the owners will convey all the permanently attached structures that are found on the property such as the house (obviously), garage, barn, outbuildings, sidewalks, in ground pools, sprinkler systems etc. Depending on your state, real property can include mineral rights as well.

Within the home it is generally accepted that all mechanical systems such as the furnace and/or HVAC systems are included as are all attached floor coverings. Purchase agreements require sellers to disclose what else is included or excluded such as appliances, window treatments, window AC units etc. Most homes are not sold furnished.
