How do Solar Panels affect a Real Estate Transaction?

Mon, Nov 27th 2023 9:20 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

I have noticed more and more homes are being sold with solar panels. Many Homeowners have acquired solar panel systems in order to reduce their electricity costs. While this is a desired approach for many homeowners, there are considerations when you are buying or selling a home with solar panels.

Solar panels can be owned outright, leased, or financed over a number of years. The best situation is if the solar panel system is owned outright without a lease or financing. If the seller has a balance due, then they should consider paying off the system at closing. The system typically remains with the home as a fixture and the buyer's purchase is a standard real estate transaction.

Should I Remodel my Home or Buy a Home already Remodeled?

Mon, Oct 23rd 2023 10:59 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

That is a good question and the answer for you could be different than someone else's answer.

With the increase in Interest rates and today's home prices, some consider if they should just remodel their own home with all of the upgrades desired instead of buying a new home. This may be the right answer for you depending on the upgrades and features you want in your home. If you are considering additions such as a pool, adding another bedroom, adding a garage, adding a workshop, etc. then you need to determine if you have enough room for the addition on your property. If you have the space, this may be an option for you. If you don't have enough room on your property, that answers your qu...

I want to buy a home. But the interest rates make my payments higher than I want to spend.

Mon, Oct 9th 2023 11:54 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

It is true. Interest rates are no longer under 3%. They are typically over 7% now. If you have a good memory, you will remember rates over 13% in years gone by. I hope we do not hit those interest rates again.

There are several options to consider as you look to buy a home to offset the higher interest rates today. The first one that comes to mind is to ask the seller to buy down your interest rate. This can be accomplished by asking them to pay $5,000 to $10,000 towards lowering your interest rate instead of reducing their purchase price. Check with your lender to confirm. I think you will find that buying your interest rate will reduce your monthly payment more than reducing the purcha...
