Its for a tenant so it has to be reliable, no need for top of the line but
no cheap junk either. Figure to spend anywhere from $400 to $600, is that
reasonable for a good reliable unit? Any recommendations?
and stainless steel. It's a beautiful machine for about $450. I don't know
the exact price because I bought it as a package deal with a side by side
refrigerator with ice and water, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer.

| The cheapest 30" gas stoves I've seen are about $280. But I think the
| OP is talking about electric since he said "range".
a "range" can be gas,electric,or propane
a range can be free standing, a slide in, or built in.
but they are all ranges.
Just to chime in, with some information -
I needed some appliances for several tenants moving in over the past
week. Unlike the OP, I just needed SOMETHING, not new, not especially
nice, but I prefer to buy something that is at least clean. I have a
commercial account at a large local appliance and furniture store.
Their cheapest gas stove is around $229, which is white with a black
door, the "squad car" paint scheme. No window in the door, and no
clock. To get one all white, with a clock and a window in the door,
my cost is about $299. Frigidaire is usually the brand I end up
with. You can get something pretty nice for $500ish, but I would
never supply something that good to a tenant.
What did I do? I went to Craigslist, and found a gas stove for $25.
It was a relatively clean, older Tappan gas stove, with electronic
ignition and it was self cleaning. It had to weigh 100 lbs, which
made it tough to move, but all in all, I am thrilled with it.
Watching CL more, I am seeing a broad range of nice and not as nice
appliances for sale everyday.
I'd dig around. We have a place called Direct Maytag, and they get
scratch and dents in. Something like that might be perfect for a
rental place. I bought a high end gas/electric unit for $500 off.
Unless you know where to look, you can't find the damage.
