That statement by the buyer agent is riduculous and has no basis. If anyone should take care of the issue is the buyer agent....the washer/dryer is a movable..and commonly becomes very movable when buying/selling a home.

The washer/dryer should have been clearly stated in writing on the purchase agreement or clarified on an addendum.

...but really, is your seller that poor that they "need" used appliances? Seriously?

Each party needs to go back to their sand box for a time out, and evaluate an hourly rate to fight for used appliances and come to an amiable solution. In the meantime, the agent needs to avoid huffing and puffing to make a the rest of us a bad name.

I am fine with the 'just looking' and I welcome them. Whenever they say that, I say,"Great! Thank you for coming, and by the way, if you know somebody else who might like this house, please have them call me".

I haven't got calls telling me their friends might like the house, but you never know what might or might not happen. Any little chance for my seller works for me. This also builds good will, which helps in the long run.

- never underestimate anything in Real Estate!
