Return the parts obviously but get good pictures and list them on all local markets. I am guessing they may be specific to that oven and you might get lucky.My latest flip just went on the market last Friday. Have had two showings, two more tonight and open house Saturday.
I go by today to tidy things up, and my F#%*}!|<*#ing stove is gone.
House was locked up tight. I can’t prove anything, but I think someone from a showing left a door unlocked so they could come back later to grab it.
It’s a special downdraft unit, $3700 (!).
I got a smoking deal on it at the sears outlet, paid $1300 for it...but I can’t replace it for that because it was a one-off deal.
It was missing about $500 in parts, which I’ll now return. So whoever stole it will soon realize it’s worthless to them.
I built the damned island around a downdraft unit. Now I get to install an overhead range hood so I’ll pass inspection, and I’ll credit the buyer for a normal stove. And close-up the underfloor vent
Ok I’m done venting...here’s the house if anyone is interested in seeing it.
Was an absolute disaster when I bought it.

Man that sucks....I flip too and have never had something stolen, but have had an attempted break-in when under contract a couple years ago when the buyer and his agent were going to do a walk-through a couple days before closing and couldn't get the key to unlock the front door. I drove out with my spare and it didn't work either. Someone had tried to pick the lock and screwed it up to where it didn't work at all and that was the only entrance.....sliding door out back and no garage opener. Luckily just got my locksmith out the next morning to fix it and all good. Just cost a hundo or so. Figured they were wanting the appliances since there was nothing else to take. I work mainly in Tarrant, but I've heard this is rampant in Dallas County, mainly in the south.
That said, I always try and check my properties regularly, especially once listed. And I have noticed that probably 50% of the time that there is a door left unlocked, either back or side entry, after there have been a couple of showings. Most times I'm sure it's an oversight since these agents suck at making sure the house is left as they found it. But sometimes wonder if it's something else. Have even found windows unlocked in spare bedrooms, etc., which is more of an oddity.
But awesome looking rehab! Looks very similar to the ones I've been doing as far as finish-out.
