Selling the Sun: Establishing Value for Solar Homes
There are over 1 million residential solar systems in the United States. Some states have more installations than others, but the growth is happening all over the country, including states not typically considered sunshine states, like Massachusetts and New Jersey.
As a real estate professional, there is a good chance that you have already encountered a solar installation, perhaps in a transaction, an MLS listing, or even in your own neighborhood. If you haven’t yet, with the growing residential solar energy market, you will likely come across a solar home soon. Real estate professionals who understand the basics of solar and know how to market the benefits of an installation will have a market edge.
For most real estate agents and appraisers, assessing the value of solar is a new frontier. Selling the Sun: Establishing Value for Solar Homes, an online Continuing Education Course presented by the U.S. Department of Energy and Elevate Energy, can help.
Benefits to real estate professionals include:
- Help clients determine market value of a home with a solar installation—sellers receive the proper value at the time of sale and buyers know what solar is worth
- Differentiate yourself from your peers by serving as a source of information on solar
- Gain access to tools for determining the fair market value of a home with solar
