The house we're closing on has a fridge, stove, washer and dryer. Would you use these or buy new? They're not brand new but in good condition.



EDIT: Looks like I'll be using these. I was mainly iffy about using someone else's washer. Seems gross to me honestly. But I'll find out how to clean it. Also, the whole house needs work so right now I'm not too worried about the appliances matching or going with the theme.

There's no use replacing something used for something else that is also used.

I would use them if they fit into the look I was going for or had all the features I wanted. If not and I could afford it, I would buy new and either sell or donate the old ones.

Used, but I hope by the time we can buy another house that we'll have new appliances.

Reuse! We moved the fridge that was left to the garage for beverages and extra space and bought a new one.

We do plan on replacing the dishwasher too, we've been here over a year and that dishwasher has served its purpose but it definitely needs to be replaced! Lol

It depends on the home. If they look good and work good then yes I will reuse. I would replace if I did not care for the look or they did not meet my needs. We had to do this when we moved to this home.

Do you have a washer and dryer now that you can bring? And sell the ones in the house?
