Microwave question for resale
We were planning an extensive kitchen remodel when my husband's job was eliminated. He has some promising job prospects, but none of them are here, so we will have to sell the house and move.
This obviously drastically changes our kitchen plans, now we are just going to do a minor update to fix the obvious problems.
My question is about the microwave. Unfortunately the previous owner put in a powerful Viking range under an OTR microwave. I know now that is a big problem. The heat from the cooktop has cracked the plastic on the front of the microwave. The vent fan is woefully inadequate, though it does vent outside.
We are not replacing the range or the cabinets. So our only 2 choices are either:
A. Replace the microwave with another OTR, or
B. Replace the current OTR with a vent hood and get a counter top microwave.
Which do you think would be less of a turn off to buyers?
