Do solar panels add value to a home?



The three things to consider before purchasing a home with solar panel or adding solar panels to your new home:

  • Does your neighborhood or area have sales with solar panels?  If your neighborhood or area has few similar sales with solar panels it will make it  harder for an appraiser to add value to your home.
  • Are the solar panels leased or owned?  If the solar panels are listed it is unlikely to add value.
  • Are the solar panels new or older?  Aging solar systems that produce less energy or are nearing the end of their effectiveness will add less value.

Jesse was so professional and helpful during my home building process. I know he went above and beyond. I am not naive in the fact I bought a house during the worst possible time. With Covid, holidays, personal issues and the normal housing process it can be stressful. Jesse was always one step ahead and communicated with me and the sellers when needed. I am incredibly grateful for the Garza Home Team!
