One of the things we’re always on the lookout for is recalls, because homebuyers and homesellers need to be aware of these. This week I came upon an important article in CNN on a Whirlpool recall that affects 26,300 glass cooktops – all sold under the Whirlpool, KitchenAid and JennAir brands. This is an important article, and if you wonder if your appliance is affected by this recall you can read more about it here.

Appliance recalls (and recalls of all sorts for that matter) are a part of life; so it pays to be informed. Here’s another website called Appliance Express we found recently that gives a list of recalls. We are also looking at the integration of an additional service for our clients where we can submit key appliance information to a company called RecallChek, and a report will be submitted to the client on the safety of the appliances in the home they’re purchasing. Curious if our clients will think that’s beneficial.

Consumers need to be informed about the homes they are purchasing, and that includes the appliances in their homes.
