You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that most people go way over budget when renovating or remodelling their homes. Sticking to building codes, discovering unknown damage like rotting wood, all the way to eating out more during the renovation can shoot those costs right up.
The good news is there’s an easy and safe way to win back some of the scope creep spending. Appliances like fridges, stoves, and washing machines are often some of the biggest expenses in a renovation, which means buying factory seconds appliances for your new kitchen, laundry, or other areas, can save a lot of money without cutting corners on quality.
Factory seconds appliances are new models which for minor reasons, can’t be sold at first-hand, out-of-the-box prices. They may have a scratch or a dent, or they could be former display models or have been used in a photoshoot. They perform exactly the same as a brand new product but at possibly hundreds of dollars less. These are also graded and come with a 6 or 12 month parts and labour warranty depending on the grade.
