Deciding if you’re purchasing new appliances or moving your current appliances from your previous home to your new residence is one of many important questions when it comes to moving. Here are some questions and helpful tips for when you are deciding on what to do with your appliances during the move.
Go over your purchase agreement: Before you make any concrete decisions regarding moving your appliances, make sure to go over the purchase agreement with your realtor. As per the agreement, you may be obligated to leave all or specific appliances in your previous home. More often than not, appliances that are built in such as the dishwashers or ovens are included with the purchase of the home. However, your standalone appliances like your fridge, washer, or dryer are usually not included and can be prepared to move. Either way, make sure to double check your agreement. You don’t want any surprises in this already hectic time.
Should you leave your appliances?: There are plenty of reasons you may want to leave your appliances rather than take them to your new home. If you’re considering selling your home, having newer appliances could increase its value. If you’re thinking of replacing your current appliances with used appliances so you’re able to take them with you, you may want to reconsider. Doing so could decrease the value of your home’s selling price. In the end, the money you would save replacing your appliances could offset, or even cost you money with the sale price of your home.
If you’re set on moving your new appliances to your new home, you should also consider if they will fit in your new home. Your new home will likely have a different layout than the previous. Will the new layout be able to accommodate your appliances? Will they match aesthetically to the new design and overall decor of your new home? Before you decide to take your appliances over, make sure you’ve answered all these questions. The last thing you want to do is waste more time, money, and space moving appliances that don’t have a place in your new home.
Moving your appliances: There can be some benefits to taking your appliances with you when you go to move. Top tier appliances would be expensive to replace in your new home. Bringing them with you will allow you to assimilate in your new home much quicker. Rather than buying new appliances and waiting on them to be delivered.
