Homeowners Planned Obsolescence a term not to live by

Managing Real Estate Broker with Flexit Realty "Flexible Home Selling Solutions"

Homeowners have to have a little help every now and again.  Things go wrong but knowing Home Repairswhat to do when is another great feature about the Internet.

How long will your appliances last?  Can you attempt repairs or is it time to call the repairman?

All home owners know the useful life of appliances or more specifically how long they will work before needing to be replaced.

Some specific appliances last longer than others but they cost more.  Then again some appliances no matter the brand or how much you pay die a natural death about the same time.

Here is a website that is really a great site that offers handy information.  It even offers "How to Buy" segments.

So if you want to know how long your freezer will work, refrigerator, washer, dryer or if a top load versus a front load washer will last longer check out the site.

You may be surprised.

Here is the link see what you think.


Hope it answers some questions and saves you some money.

Gary good for one to have an idea when buying a home.  They aren't cheap but usually last quite a few years thank goodness.

Gary, this is great information. I've bookmarked this blog.  I think that in the future, real estate agents will need to know how to provide this information or direct their clients to it.  The days of buying homes without a clue about how long things might last are a dying breed.  Good post.
