As a landlord, you’re always looking for the most value, for the least amount of money. No bells and whistles, here. This is never truer than when it comes to choosing the right appliances for your rental property or properties.
Appliances are expensive…Period. And with so many brands to choose from, it can often be difficult to maximize your money. Obviously, you don’t want to go with the cheapest brand. That would just annoy your tenants. You don’t want to go with the most expensive brand. That would just annoy your wallet. You need to find the perfect brand, right in the middle. You need to find a brand than maximizes you value.
What are the Best Brands of Appliances?
The best brands to purchase for your rental property are Whirlpool and Kenmore, according to Auburn Rose Property Management co-owner Mark Rosenfeld.
“They are reliable, need fewer repairs and last longer than many other brands”
What Appliances should be included and excluded in a Rental Property?
Obviously, you should include the essentials, like a stove and refrigerator. The rest is really up to you. We would suggest, however, avoiding the following appliances:
- Garbage Disposals: Garbage disposals are nice and your tenants may appreciate them, but they are prone to breakdowns, which will cost you lots of time and money.
- Washing Machines and Dryers: Another set of appliances that are nice to have but prone to breakdowns, washing machines and dryers could end up costing you a lot of money.
- Ice Makers: Like all of the appliances we already mentioned, ice makers tend to breakdown…a lot!
