    Hello. May have to sell home in the next year. Has anyone ever moved and took their stove with them?

    I would think that the stove would be a good selling point for the old house.

    Doen here in Mass it can go either way. Some people want copies of building permits, reciepts from origional installers etc.
    This is great if its a new install pellet stove and you have all that.
    From what Ive seen, if you like the stove, have room for it and can use it in the new place, take it. It'll end up being a nice momento to remind you of the place you left.
    I know if I ever go mines coming with me, and Ive had it running a whopping two nights

    Is the install a direct vent, or does it go up a chimney, If it is a direct vent you will have to fill the hole, on the inside that would be easy , but on the out side it could be a problem. (Matching the exterior side Siding, or singles, etc.)

    Well the stove only burned feb and march of 08. I think i may list the stove as optional and if they want it, they'll have to pony up what i paid for it since it's so new and you cant get a harman for a while now. I have vynil siding but i also have extra pieces.....

    If that is the case, list it as a option and if they don't want it take it or sell it on ebay or craigslist

    Technically it is a "fixture" as it is attached to your house and has to go with it when sold.You can however,in the listing agreement state that it does not or that it will be sold as extra to the buyer.

    If it leaves a hole, leave it.
    We had issues at closing where the buyer expected the wood stove insert to stay. We had listed specifically that the stove wouldn't stay. Next time we will specify "wood stove". Technically it is an appliance as it is not hard fixed to the home.
    It was in a zero clearance fireplace so we did take it with us. Traded it for a pellet stove later on.
    Peace

    sorry your wrong it is a fixture;
    Fixture;An article which was once a chattel but which has now become a part of the real estate because the article is permanently attached to the soil or to something attached to the soil.

    All things that are attached to property, such as ceiling lights, awnings, window shades and doorknobs. Fixtures are automatically included in a sale, unless specifically mentioned in the contract as going to the seller

    http://www.lectlaw.com/def/f047.htm

    That is even a question on most state real estate tests

    Thats said you can specify any fixture that does not go with the home.Of course in this market the buyers are few and far between, and will remain that way for at least another year,so you want to be pretty carefull not to scare off a sale just to keep a couple grand worth of stove.

    Possible selling agent said he would list the stove as not with the house and offer it as optional for a price.

    Thanx for all responses.
