Which appliances should I NOT buy used?
We are looking to remodel a vacation home that we're (probably) going to purchase. It's a big remodel and we will be ripping out the kitchen and starting fresh. Because it's the vacation home and because we are trying to keep costs as low as possible, I'm looking at buying used appliances to put in that house. Fridge, electric range, microwave hood, dishwasher, washer and dryer. I've been cruising Craigslist and, for example, someone in my neighborhood is selling a 2 year old W/D set for $500 that would cost well over $1000 brand new! Of course I'll do my homework on the particular model before I just blindly purchase.
Are there any of these that you would suggest I just suck up the cost and buy new for one reason or another? Or any suggestions for the cheapest way to buy a bunch of appliances? Thanks for the advise.
