Is the buyer of your house expecting the replacement cost?

If you didn't already factor in the age of your home's componenets, a buyer may choose to re-negotiate the purchase price of your house if the inspection highlights unexpected replacement time frames. An appraisal may come back lower than expected due to the life expectancy of certain components. The list below gives a range of life expectancy. Some components might not apply to you.
