Dear Sellers....the Buyers Do No Want Your Old Paint
The end is drawing near. The house was fixed up and put on the market. It was marketed and shown. A buyer put in an offer, which was accepted. The closing is almost here and both Buyers and Sellers are looking forward to the move.
The Sellers are packing up and getting rid of their unwanted belongings. The purchase and sale agreement provides that the property will be left in broom clean condition.....with all of Seller's personal property not included in the sale having been removed. That does not mean all of Seller's property except what they do not want to move or are too tired to move or think they can leave behind.
Frequently I find Seller's leaving their old cans of paint behind. Often they claim to be doing the Buyers a favor so that they can match the paint. Let me tell you something....the buyers do not want your old paint. If it is in such poor condition that it needs touching up, they are going to re-paint. Chances are, the buyers plan to re-paint anyway.
It can be difficult to dispose of paint in some communities and most buyers have enough to do without getting rid of your old paint. If we see it at the final walk through, most buyers....or at least my buyers.....are going to ask for money to dispose of it. So, do not wait until the end.
Once the house is under agreement, go to your basement or garage and get rid of the paint....first thing....the buyers do not want it.
If you are looking to buy a house in Canton MA or in Norfolk County MA make sure you have 100% buyer representation from the home search through that final walk through. Contact the Canton MA Buyer Broker.
