Quick check of the Sears website, lowest price same model in both finishes;
Stainless Fridge = $551 Black Fridge = $424
Stainless Range = $470 Black Range = $380
Stainless Range Hood = $114 Black Range Hood = $85 ------------- Stainless = $1135 wo/ shipping Black = $890 wo/ shipping
That's a difference of $245 (one month's profit for me, or could be used for other up-dates) and I don't believe my rent could be substantially higher then the other rental homes in the area, (900 sq. ft brick ranch in a regular working class suburban neighborhood) which I'm figuring I could get $900-$1000 per month for.
