Are your home’s appliances breaking down?
Most appliances last quite a while but eventually, time takes its toll. It can get really frustrating to have a broken appliance fixed only for another to break down in no time.
Over time, refrigerators, ovens, washers and dryers, air conditioners, and heating elements will have to be replaced.
The hard part is that these appliances don’t come cheap. To replace all appliances in your home, you’d be looking at well over $10,000. Replacing just a few quickly adds up to $2,000 or $3,000.
So what should you do if your household appliances keep breaking down?
Well, at Bright Haven Properties, we’ve worked with a lot of home sellers in your position, and here are a few recommendations.
Replace The Most Important Appliances First
Replacing all appliances at a go is certainly an expensive undertaking. Start by replacing the most important appliances, like refrigeration, oven, and washers and dryers. Then, you can move on to replacing the AC, heating, and other less important appliances when you can.
Fix What You Can
It will save you much trouble if you can get really old appliances replaced. But if this is something you can’t afford to do, it’s worth hiring an expert to take a look. An expert should be able to tell you whether or not the appliance can be fixed or if it needs to be replaced. Fixing is almost always cheaper than replacing.
