Do I have to give my TV to the buyers of my House?

Is a Wall Mounted TV Real Property or Real Estate in College Station TX?

Real property is defined as: “Property that is fastened down or an integral part of the home’s structure, such as light fixtures, drapery rods, attached mirrors, and trees.”

Wall mounted TV’s are every bit as “fastened down” as Drapery Rods! Quite a bit more actually… So does that make Wall Monted TV’s real property?

I don’t have an answer to this question! It recently “Came up” in a transaction I was working here in College Station and the attorney involved also could not conclude “YES or NO”.

As a REALTOR® my advice is as always: If it’s in question write it in the contract. However, it has come to my attention that some buyers might not even bring it up because the just “assume” that they convey. Apparently in other markets where these high end fixtures have been around longer and/o more common it has become a precedent for the wall mounted TV’s to convey.

What do you think??? Are wall mounted TV’s Real Property or Real Estate here in College Station TX??? Please comment below.
