Do people prefer homes with solar?

Are you looking to add value to your home instantly? 

A common question people face when deciding whether to go solar, is whether or not their investment will be “worth it” once the time comes to sell their home. The proof is in the numbers, and according to two Berkeley lab studies, “home buyers across the country have been willing to pay a premium of about $15,000” for a home with solar panels. Additionally, Zillow reported that across the U.S., “homes with solar-energy systems sold for 4.1% more on average than comparable homes without solar power”.  APS will continue to raise their rate so being able to sell your home with the security of a consistently low bill, is a huge asset. Buyers understand solar is an upgrade to a house, and it’s hard to turn down a safe bet when it comes to their electric bill each month. 

What is better for your home’s value, to own or lease solar panels?

Many solar installers in Phoenix boast leasing panels as the fastest and easiest way to go solar. If you plan on selling your home at any point in the future, you need to know that owning the solar panels, as opposed to leasing them, will make the sales process much smoother. At Rooftop Solar, we have taken into account the importance of ensuring your panels will benefit not only you but the buyer as well. To make it possible, we offer a loan program, or you can purchase the solar panel installation outright. In both cases, you own the system and get to take advantage of federal and Arizona solar incentives for a total of nearly 40%!   It is extremely appealing to home buyers to purchase a home that already has a fully paid solar-electric system, and you can typically add the cost of the system to the selling price of your home. 

Still not sure if it’s the right choice?

Rooftop Solar is one of the only solar companies in Arizona that offers SolarInsure to our customers. We can give our customers the security of having coverage on their solar panels and installation for 30 years including gap insurance to cover what a typical insurance does not. The insurance transfers over to the buyer of your home, giving them the assurance of decades of reliable performance.
