If you’re selling your home, make sure you are accurate in the way that your home is described. I recently put an offer in on a home that had many “new” things listed including a kitchen remodel. Upon further investigation, the remodel was done in 2002. Having a kitchen oven used for 5 years isn’t “new” to most people.

A few years ago, a Broker I know had to pay for new appliances in a home because the Listing Agent advertised them as “new” but they were installed and used for 9 months. I know some things may sound new to an owner, but remember how a car dealership works. A car is no longer new once the Buyer pays for it and drives it off the lot.
