    Houses With Solar Panels Sell For Up To 40% More Than Predicted

Houses With Solar Panels Sell For Up To 40% More Than Predicted

If you’re in the house-flipping business, you should know that people are willing to pay a lot more for a house with solar panels. Actually, first-time home buyers pay up to 40 percent more than predicted for entry-level homes with solar panels. Most of this stems from millennials yearning for greener amenities. They know that solar panels will save money in the long run. They find it advantageous not to have to have them installed. If they’re ready to go when they move in, their energy bills go down right away. In sunny states, many homeowners can even sell off their excess solar energy to the local energy company.

Plus, right now and through 2019, people who purchase solar panels qualify for the 30 percent tax credit. Keep this in mind when pricing out systems if you’d like to upgrade a home you’re investing in. This single feature has shows the greatest unexpected increase in home sales for entry-level homes. It’s a premium feature, but will absolutely set you apart from other homes if the area is hot for the millennial generation.

4 Quick Fixes to Improve Curb Appeal


As a real estate investor, you probably already understand the importance of curb appeal. A property that looks great from the outside will nearly always sell faster than one that doesn’t; the same principle applies if you’re trying to rent out an investment property. The neater and cleaner it looks on the outside, the more likely you are to find a tenant quickly.

The good news is that you can boost your investment property’s curb appeal in just one day — and you can do it without spending a fortune.
Quick Pick-Me-Ups for Curb Appeal

Power-wash the exterior of the home, paying special attention to the porch and entryways. Statistics show that many potential buyers and renters drive by a home before they call and ask to see it, and one that’s sparkling-clean will get more attention than one that isn’t.
Replace old house numbers with new ones. There are dozens of modern, attractive styles in nearly every home improvement store, and you might be surprised at how something so small can make a difference so big.
Invest in flower boxes or live plants outside. Adding life to the porch or windowsills can improve curb appeal by leaps and bounds, and if you’re feeling extra-inspired, add fresh mulch to bushes and trees on the property.
Stake out a new mailbox. Even a plain, simple box will do; you don’t have to choose something ornate (and you shouldn’t, especially if it’s out-of-place in the neighborhood).
