As we mentioned, swapping out for more energy efficient appliances can help maximize the value of your home before selling it. While energy efficiency is one reason for swapping them out, design is another. Having a unified look to your kitchen, laundry room, or any other room with appliances, is extremely important to homebuyers. If you have a mismatching fridge and stove for example, it can deter people away from wanting to buy the home. While it may seem like a big investment for a house you only plan to sell, it will make your home worth more, and increase the chances of someone wanting to purchase it.
