23 Of The Strangest Things Homebuyers Have Asked Sellers to Leave With the Property

It’s not unusual for homebuyers to admire a seller’s belongings. Chances are they may share similar taste—they bought the same house, after all!

But some go as far as to ask that certain items remain with the home as part of the deal. It’s easy to imagine clients wanting to include mirrors, window treatments, and maybe even chandeliers—but some take it a step farther and make really bold requests.

We asked our audience to share their experiences with the wildest things their buyers wanted thrown in with the property to seal the deal, and some are downright startling. Take a look and prepare to shake your head in disbelief!

Animals

Believe it or not, some buyers have the nerve to request the seller leave the family pet behind. Ouch! And we’re not just talking about cats, dogs, and fish—but those are in there too. Check out some of the more exotic animals buyers were eager to own!

This one’s for the birds…

Not just ANY type of gorilla…

“Anyone seen my ass?!?!”

Yeah, peacocks are louder and meaner than anyone thinks…


Maybe they shoulda kept their intentions to themselves…


That’s about as big and alive as I want a leopard in my life to be…


Same goes for any Bigfoots…


One more animal one left, bear with me…

Cars

We’re not talking about a kids’ Hot Wheels collection! People legitimately ask for cars. And nice ones at that!!!

Weird that none of these requests were for a Nissan, or a Honda

Bathroom - er - accessories


That thing better have been a hand-carved, one-of-a-kind piece…


This one will sound crazy to people…in like 73 years.


I’m more of a Daffy Duck person myself, but I get it…


No butts about it…


How else are they gonna know where to hang ‘em?!?!

Miscellaneous “Odds” & Ends


Does this count as a window treatment?


This one must’ve raised some eyebrows…


Well, it is hard to find a reallllllly long extension cord…


I hope they clarified that it wasn’t wood-burning!


“And throw in your bell bottoms!!!”


There’s a first for everything…


This is literally a “baby” grand…
