does it pay to sell old built-in appliances after a remodel?

Doing a kitchen remodel and wondering if there is any resale market for old built-ins or should I just have the contractor trash these? I have a large Vent-A-Hood range hood and stainless steel double sink (both from the 70's or 80's). I'm not looking to sell them here, I'm just wondering if they are worth keeping to stick on craigslist.

Craigslist or Facebook market. Consider donating to Habitat for Humanity or similar. HfH has retail stores for reusables.

Yes, I donated mine to the Habitat restore. They have to be in decent condition. They came and picked them up. You can try selling them; you might get a few bucks for someone looking for basement or garage cabinets.

Every appliance I replace I tear them apart and sell the individual parts, the pieces are worth more than the whole.

Roughly I can recoup about 50% of the cost of the new appliance.

You could have a gold mine or the shaft sitting there!
