We are planning on selling our house within the next 2-5 years, our kitchen is falling apart (ceramic tiles are cracked due to cheap set-fill, cheap cabinets, soffets) so we are planning on doing a total remodel. We live in a nice area, houses range in the $500-800 range. My question is how much does quality appliances help when selling, should I get a built in sub zero refrigerator or can I get a free standing one? I hate the thought of spending $20,000 on appliances if we won't be there 10 years to enjoy them. We need all new appliances as well since most of them are 20 years old. Any advice would be appreciated.
