The Cost to Replace Kitchen Appliances When Selling

Because I already pulled links on the cost of a new gas range, dishwasher and built-in microwave (over-the-range), in black, no less, from 3 different vendors for my seller yesterday, I thought, hey, this is good information to share with my readers, too. It made me reflect back on the old days, when appliances would last dozens of years before falling apart. Not so anymore. Plus, they are relatively cheap to replace, and they look SO MUCH better than older, beat-up appliances.

Then, my sister emails this morning to ask why didn't I include the cost of a new refrigerator. She's thinking about replacing hers. Well, that's because refrigerators are personal property in Sacramento real estate. You can unplug and cart them away. Apart from being enormously expensive, they often do not stay with the house.

You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Lifespan and Cost of Kitchen Applianes When Home Selling.
