Re: Appliance Colors by Anonymous on October 30, 2017 @16:14

I, as many of us, are trying to get ''out of the appliance business''. A lot of it depends on the market point of.your rentals. The upper mid range is generally good with stainless or black trim on stainless. The upper end particularly in sfr's seem to want or have their own refrigerators and laundry. there are now so many sizes and styles of refrigerators its become very personal for even the tenants, and I don't know of ANY LL who wants to put a 3 or 4 thousand dollar frig into a rental. Full black tends to make the kitchen look darker and smaller and seems to not be as neutral with other colors as stainless.

with 20 to 30 units to turn you should be in a strong position to make a good deal either factory direct or through a master wholesaler / distributor.

If you're a residential landlord I'd like to know how you get out of dealing with appliances.
I wish I could!

    It's not the appliances that is the problem, but poor screening on the landlords part that allows those tenants who are abusive towards appliances or fail to inspect their properties often. Never seen an appliance that was self abusive?

    jeff -- units with builtins, the builtins are LL responsibility. Freestanding stoves, fridges, laundrys are up for discussion. In lower end to mid range properties I usually have to furnish and maintain,....which is a pita. On turnovers I try to remove in place laundry, stoves and fridges in hopes of new T having or buying their own. I will not kill a deal if it comes up and I have to furnish and maintain,....but I make it known that T is getting a used / servicable mid range appliance in whatever color I give them. No $4000 designer appliances. I try to offer prospective T a couple of hundred dollars per appliance towards them going out and buying their own which they then own and can take with them when they move on, or which I will buy from them at their departure. ---That often seems to work well.

    On upper end rentals that more sophisticated T has a better understanding and seems more willing to go out and buy their own style of aspirational appliance -- particularly with fridge's and laundry.
