advice about reselling new appliances
I removed two new appliances in our new house that are not exactly what we wanted. I was hoping to get high $ value, but have not been getting many bites on my adds.
The two are a 48" wolf gas cooktop with griddle and a 48" built in Jenn Air fridge freezer.
Both are "new" installed about 8 months ago. The griddle on the Wolf has never been used and burners are all still clean looking (used lightly over summer).
I've tried local mailing lists, and local Craigs list. Here's my question: how much would be your price for one of these? I had hoped to give 25% discount, but no nibbles.
I guess some of the problems are that 48" is large- many houses can't acomodate them. Plus, if you're in the market for one of these, maybe you just want it from the dealer. They are also big- you need your contractor to move them and install- not back of a pickup for this fridge.
If you were a buyer or seller, where would you think the post to get the best result? and how high a price (percentage of new) would you pay for an unused appliance 8 months old, that has sadly already been delivered to a home? Are there issues I have not listed above?
I would love advice on this matter. For two top of the line appliances, in new condition, the typical "free is a good price on craigslist" does not seem appropriate.
