Helping You Buy or Sell Your Home

Appliances Fort Wayne, Indiana

If you’re contemplating a move in the somewhat near future, it’s important to know that when selling your home the appliances can be a possible deal breaker when it comes to making a sale.  Anne Henry, real estate agent for RE Max Results definitely knows what house hunters are on the prowl for.

Now what happens when a move is in the works and there’s an incredibly unlucky mishap with an expensive appliance?  (Let’s face it, nobody wants to purchase a new appliance when they’re anticipating buying new once they’re moved into a new place. *We Know!*) But when you’re forced to make a decision, do you spend money on the newest high-end appliance or do you pay to have the original repaired?  Msn.com recently posted a video in the Real Estate section to help home owners decide which appliances to splurge on and which ones are worth saving.

Bottom line is, if the repairs are more than half the value of the appliance it’s time to purchase a new model.  This may be fairly frustrating, but try to remember the benefits of new appliances.  Several models are expensive to buy but end up saving you on energy in the long run.  Anne also tries to explain to clients that new appliances, although expensive can end up raising the value of your home.  Stainless steel appliances are a major bonus! You can end up making your money back (and then some!) in no time!
