Considering a Solar Lease? Know what you’re getting into.

Bloomberg just posted a great article about the potential pitfalls of leasing a solar system for your home. If you have a leased system installed, not only does a buyer have to assume the terms of your lease agreement when you sell, but buyers may have to qualify to the solar company’s credit standards.

Market Update – 6/14

Many new properties for your perusal and more positive news for the region! Both the inventory of property and sales activity are still climbing in Sacramento and Placer Counties, continuing the strong summer season that we’ve enjoyed so far. Values are up 16% over the past 12 months, and this Sacramento Bee article details the areas that experienced the largest gains. With mortgage rates still hovering in the low 4% range, buying power remains strong and continued demand is keeping a slight upward pressure on the market. The outlook for the next 3-4 months is strong and I would expect a continuation of current trends.

Another positive that I’ve seen firsthand is an influx of buyers being transferred to the area. Local employers are more confident and investing in additional resources, a great sign for the region and another source of stability for our housing market.

Finally, new home construction has resumed in many areas and new home sales numbers are increasing. I recently put clients into a new home; I was impressed by quality of amenities being provided standard and the wide range of energy-efficient options. Let me know if you’re considering a new home purchase and I’ll be happy to provide some detailed info on what to look for!
