Product manuals for all items which had product manuals are included for the buyer (I believe all are present - possibly something missing).

Please Note: Any offers and/or sale agreements MUST include a Mortgage Pre-Approval for an amount equal to the full price of the house. I realize there will be a down payment, but a pre-approval for the full price provides better assurance the buyer will actually be approved for the amount actually financed. In the event of a cash sale, proof of funds availability is required.
