Detail and wax your car and keep it visible/parked during showings. Make buyers think about buying your house and lifestyle. I would resist mentioning your car is for sale. Others might disagree as I have met realtors that have mentioned if furniture or larger items in the garage convey or are negotiable.

Good luck, im sure it's a great house. I wish we had solar incentives where I am plus I am also looking at an electric car to take advantage of HOV lanes in the future.

Sight unseen? Based on what?

Yes you ca buy private property items that are in the house like a couch, patio set, tv, etc. but it has to be purchased separately not as part of the house pice. U less the item is simply left there as a free you can have it no bank will fund if you’re buying s car.

Personally I don't own a electric car so the whole charging station and it’s “benefits” would be completely lost on me. I wouldn’t pay extra for that. I had a electric car you would need to exclude the charge station and remove it or it would have to be part of the house as it’s connected and bolted to the structure it’s part of the structure.

I'm just being nice and optimistic. Reading stories of folks having issues selling their homes make me sad. It's a very stressful process so i'm just trying to spread some good vibes.

The car is worth about 50-60k and I'm hoping that as a result of the deal, i can perhaps get more than that when the package deal is marketted correctly.

The only major issue i see is that potential buyers may not qualify for their loan, because the house will not appraise for the 700k (for example) listed price because they won't take the car's value into consideration when doing the home appraisal.

Tell me why this is a good/bad idea! Thank you!
Thinking Man....you have definitely been thinking too much.

Thinking Man, Everyone is telling you the same thing: 'Trying to sell the house with an add-on car (and price) is really a bad idea!'

Are you still considering this? - What are you 'thinking' it will take to "correctly market" a poorly conceived package deal?

Not everyone who can afford a 650k house wants to throw away 50k on a car that they didn't even pick out.
