31 Jan Home with solar panels for sale at 118 Raintree Circle Jacksonville, NC 28540
We recently listed a home for sale at 118 Raintree Circle Jacksonville, NC 28540. The home includes solar panels which cuts down on your energy costs substantially.
A Department of Energy funded study conducted in 2015 by a group of economists in California showed that on average solar panels added a premium to the selling price of a property of $20,914 in mid-range houses valued around $500,000. They did this by studying comparative sales of similar houses with and without solar panels.
In 2019 Zillow also released a study comparing thousands of similar houses that had sold with and without solar and concluded that on average solar panels added 4.1% to the value of a home. Similar results to what the DOE study in 2015 found.
This return is in addition to electricity bill savings above. Solar prices have fallen a bit since then and so this premium may also have fallen but it is still clear that most of the cost of a home solar power system would still be reflected in higher home valuations. This makes solar a good investment even if you plan on moving in a few years. There is further anecdotal evidence that on average homes with solar panels sell quicker.
