. It is better to sell the pool along with the house. In-ground pools cannot feasibly be moved. You may find someone who is willing to try, but the price will be outrageous and the result may not be a good one.
Unless you want to try to move your child's favourite small slide or swing, playground equipment should be left for the new owners of your old home. Most of this equipment is rooted in the ground, so removing it is a difficult process. The large size of the equipment also makes the moving process difficult and expensive. It may be sad to see a childhood play area go, but leaving it for the next family lets the area live on longer than it would for your aging kids.
Choosing what appliances are included with the house and which ones you are taking with you should have been negotiated during your home's sale. Theoretically, you could move all of your appliances
to your new home, but that would greatly diminish your home's marketability and value. You also will probably get some appliances included in your new home purchase, so there's no need to bring all of your old ones.
TIP: If you are leaving a certain appliance behind, be sure to leave the accompanying instruction manual, as well.
Moving is also a good time to buy new appliances. This may cost extra money, but a move is a good opportunity
to upgrade all aspects of your home life. It will be much easier to get a new dishwasher or washing machine if you do it while moving. You don't need to tolerate that inconsistent washing machine anymore, you're moving and it's time for something new!
Keys to your old home are useless to you once you move. Don't forget to leave the new owners keys to the house and any other locked areas like sheds or the basement. New homeowners are supposed to change the locks in the doors when they buy a new home, but leaving the keys for them makes things easier for them before they get to do that Also, some surveys suggest that 60 percent of people who move into a new home don't actually change the locks. That's probably a bad idea, but it is their decision and offering them all of your keys lets them make it themselves.
Home security equipment/manuals
If you have a home security system installed, it may be good to include that contract in the house's cost. A home security system is designed to work very specifically with the home's layout, so attempting to move a system with you won't work, especially since the security company has your old address registered. You can't really move your old security system to a new home.
The contract and manual for the system are important to leave behind because the new homeowners need to decide if they want to continue using the service. They also need to know how to change the passwords and how the system works.
