I have a pool table in my house. The previous owners left it, despite me not wanting it. I used it quite a bit for about two months, then got bored with it. We have Christmas decorations sitting on it now.
As far as moving it... mine will be going out in many pieces when I finally get around to buying a sledgehammer. Those things are a waste of money unless you own a bar.
we almost bought a house but we were negotiating with the owner. i had already told him we didn't want it. down the line when we couldn't come together on a price (their house had been on the market for 8 months and barely budged on their asking price that hadn't changed the entire time) he goes, "but you are getting the POOL TABLE" i start laughing and am go, "thanks for reminding, me. i'm taking another $200 bucks off our offer for the removal of a pool table. i have no problem letting your home sit for another 8 months"
the next day another house came on the market, 2 days later we made an offer on it and got it. calling back that guy was one of the funnest phone calls i've ever made. he was flabbergasted and so angry.
