Can I buy appliances for my rental house before the house finish construction? (Tax deduction purpose)

I have a rental house under construction and will be closed in February 2018. I am thinking to take advantage of Black Friday to get some appliances for the house. If I buy these appliances now(November 17), keep them for a few months, Can I still choose to depreciate them in the future after they place in service in 2018? Please advise. Thanks!

Yes you can when you place the rental into service.

Thanks a lot. I was a little concern about the activity across the year that might be confusing to explain if I get an audit in the future. Do you know if I also need to put a stain concrete floor after closing, how many years should I depreciate the floor? Thank you!!
