The short answer is Yes. However, normally houses are sold with fixtures and fittings, but excluding contents. Contents can be included if that is specified in the contract for sale. Usually, this would be specified in the marketing with wording such as “sold as seen” or “contents included”. If the contents are available, we usually sell the house and then negotiate with the buyer regarding the contents. That way, if they do not want the contents, they are not put off the house. If the contents are rubbish, the buyer would be offered a discount to dispose of them. In most cases, the house will sell for a lot more if the rubbish contents are dumped before the sale. Many buyers have difficulty seeing beyond the contents (which is why staging is so effective).
