Does your listing need an Edge? How about new Appliances? Heres a Tip!

By

Many homes that are sitting on the market could use new energy efficient appliances, as a selling feature in a very competitive market. Some don’t have any and would show better with appliances in place.

As you may have already realized, certain household items, including appliances, go on sale at certain times of the year. If you have the flexibility to choose when you shop when you purchase certain appliances, do so. However, you also need to do your homework, or you may be taken in by retailers who mark their prices up so they can slash them. Therefore, you should make sure to comparison shop identical models of an appliance in as many stores as possible so you can know the best place to buy an appliance when you need to. 
Large appliances.
Higher priced appliances, such as ranges and washing machines, typically are on sale in the fall to correspond with back-to-school time. New models are also arriving in the fall, which means that the old models will be going cheap. But don’t count out great winter sales now in this sluggish economy
Do plenty of comparison shopping, but make sure to check out all retailers, not just big stores like Home Depot, Sears and Wal-Mart. In many cases, smaller, independent stores will have competitive prices on large and small appliances. Additionally many people find the service, staff, delivery and set-up of independent stores to be more satisfactory than that of the larger stores.
There are two things to remember to find the best deals on appliances: do your homework, and time your purchase well!

Great idea Scott.  Just think rather than reducing your home price to beat the competition, spend a little money, upgrade appliances, going green while doing so and laugh all the way to the bank!  Thanks for sharing!

Great post.

As our clients Realtors we contacted a couple of companies that sell appliances (a local one and Home Depot) and asked if they would give our clients a contractors price through us for their appliances. They both did and Home Depot gave our client a huge discount.

That's a really great tip.  People are always looking at the energy efficiency of everything, so  upgrading the appliances and advertising the efficiency is a great selling tip.
