Moving can be stressful, especially in the hot Florida climate. In addition, there are a billion little things that you need to keep track of. One of those things is having solar panels installed and how that will affect the sale of your house. Lots of people are rightfully worried that this might somehow reduce the value of their property. But with Atlantic Key Energy, selling your solar home will be quick and easy.
Here at Atlantic Key Energy, we want to reach as many homes and homeowners as possible. We’d like to give everyone a chance to use renewable power and cut their bills in half. However, we also work hard on helping existing homeowners with easy service transfers to new clients ready to own a solar home of their own.
Atlantic Key Energy’s Service Transfer Options
It’s a proven fact that renewable energy adds value to a house during the sale. According to 2016 statistics provided by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, homeowners in the USA were willing to pay an extra $4 per one Watt of solar power. That means you will earn an extra $15,000 on the existing selling price. That’s $15,000 for a home with an average-sized system.
However, what should you do if you hadn’t paid off your system yet? Will that help or hinder you when selling your home?
Well, Atlantic Key Energy has three solutions for you:
- You can opt to pay for your panel system after the sale of the house is finalized.
- Include the price of panels with the total price of your home. The new owner will then pay for everything in advance.
- If the new owner also wants solar energy, simply transfer the ownership of the panels to them.
Personally, we prefer the third option. Whether you’re buying, leasing, or renting a system, you can easily transfer the service to a new homeowner. All you have to do is contact Atlantic Key Energy and iron out the service transfer details.
The Benefits of Selling Your Solar Home
As stated earlier, solar energy will add extra value to your home. You will be able to earn more money by simply installing an average-sized system. In fact, people are far more likely to buy a home with solar energy than one without it, especially in Florida.
Keep in mind that the property itself has plenty of benefits that a buyer might like. First off, it produces more energy than electric power. As a result, you will be receiving lower electric bills. And in this day and age, paying less for electricity is not only desirable, but also quite necessary.
Next, when you own a solar system, you get sizable tax write-offs, rebates, and other incentives. In certain states, you can deduct as much as 30% of your solar energy system costs. These incentives help promote clean energy to other homeowners and are a great additional selling point for any home.
Low maintenance is another perk of owning a system. More often than not, the panels you use are quite durable and don’t need a lot of servicing. Usually, experts will inspect the systems after a major weather event, or they’ll do it periodically. However, given how easy these systems are to install, homeowners can inspect the panels themselves.
Finally, having a solar home means you’re contributing to keeping the planet clean. Any prospective homeowner will want to use a renewable source of energy in order to help fight fossil fuel emissions.
