Does Solar PV Increase The Sale Price Of Your Home?

Any home by being more energy efficient, is a great draw card for many home buyers. Most people initially thinking of construction materials, such as insulation in the roof and walls, along with shading and sun reflecting glass. All of these pointing towards a projected lesser spend over the years, on future energy costs.

But what about a home that is more electrically efficient? A home being sold with an installed solar power system.

When home energy assessments at the time of sale, become mandatory in all Australian states, energy efficient homes will be valued at a higher price. Simply because they carry a better energy rating and cost less to run. This 'mandatory disclosure', is already happening in the ACT. Occurring at both the time of sale & a new tenancy agreement.

Further home saleability factors can be included, where the seller is in reality, selling a home with 'reduced future electricity costs'. Where the seller in theory, sells the home with a certain amount of 'electricity credits'. These 'electricity credits' being a benefit to both parties. The seller being able to ask more at the time of sale. The buyer knowing the home will cost less to run, due to directly offsetting future electricity costs.
