Don't understand your post. Would think upgraded appliances are worth it to the user (the owner) whether installed prior to occupancy or after. We upgraded our fridge last year, kept the old one in the laundry room. It's sure worth it to me.

Are you saying it doesn't make a difference in your tax assessment if you do it before closing? Doesn't it make a difference in the purchase price and thus in the tax assessment (and tax bill) if you do it thru the Villages prior to closing?

I agree with you about the tax assessment. If I purchased the upgraded appliances from the builder it would have increased the price of my home by $8500, which in turn increases my tax assessment. I wish I could have told them keep all of your appliances and just take that total off the price of the house. The appliances you get from the builder are not bad, its just that I love to cook and I'm a kitchen person, so I like to have certain features in my appliances.
