Never.  I do a walk through to ensure all the crap is out. Three times in my 14 year career a short sale seller attempted to leave their unwanted crap. Did. Not. Happen. We did not close until the seller removed their garbage.

Fortunately, it has not happened to us Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington.  Usually 'arrangements of some type' have been made when furniture is left - either it's going to a thrift shop or we are donating it to an organization that works with homeless Vets.  Anything other than not donate-able items is disposed of in some manner, not by us.

Occasionally there are things left behind. One town here will take electronic and appliances and sell for scrap; it is how they paid for aquatic center and town hall.

I expect it.

When it does not happen I go early for the happy hour.

He who blinks first calls the hauler. Sometimes, for $30, I make the problem go away. 

The buyer, with all their stuff on the truck, is not in a strong position to demand much.
