1. Does the Loan Purchase Solar System Affect the House Price?

Recently, a considerable number of people choose to buy a solar system in installments. This payment method can not only let them enjoy the convenience in advance but also reduce their financial pressure. In some federal countries, the government will also provide users with tax credits for purchasing solar energy systems.


When you want to sell your house during the loan period, you need to first judge your loan type. Different loan methods determine the preparations you need to make in advance when you sell your house.


If you financed your solar PV system with a secured loan, you must pay off all dues before you sell it, since your property was used as collateral for the loan. Another loan method has nothing to do with mortgage, so you can sell your house at any time, but you are still responsible for paying off the loan.

2. Does the Leased Solar Energy System Affect the House Price?

Many homeowners wonder whether their house price will be affected if they have installed solar photovoltaic systems on a rental basis and want to sell the house before the lease expires?


Usually you can choose either of the following ways to realize the sale.


The first is that you are fully responsible for the remaining rent. In this way, you can sell the solar energy system as part of your house and ask for a higher price.


The second method is to transfer the leasing arrangement to the house buyer. As long as the new house-owner understands the high return on investment of a solar energy system, he will basically agree to pay the rent.



Therefore, no matter which method you use, your house will definitely sell for higher prices than any other residence as long as you install high-quality solar panels on your roof.
