When it comes to giving a gift to a new homeowner in your family, there are plenty of options. From furniture and linens to kitchen equipment, anything to feather the nest is usually appreciated. Yet, there are few gifts that continue to give for many years to come like rooftop solar panels.
Ok, that might sound a little strange, but consider the impact of a home solar system for a new homeowner – especially one who may be planning to expand their family.
With solar panels, they’ll have little or no electric bill each month. And, the savings will go on for decades. This means that the money that would otherwise go to the utility company can now be used for more important things, such as child-related expenses, college tuition, retirement savings or paying down that mortgage. And, solar panels have virtually no upkeep. They simply sit on the roof, quietly generating electricity – and saving money.
Solar panels also add inestimable resale value to a home. In a recent study from Zillow, solar panels can add from $9,000 to $42,000 to a home’s resale value. For the median-priced home, the study concluded that solar adds an additional 4.1 percent of value. That’s a lot of bang for the buck!
So, if you have a family member who is buying a home, and you want to contribute to its value over the long term, consider a home solar system. It truly is a gift that keeps on giving.
Of course, you’ll want to choose a legitimate solar energy contractor that will help you to select the right system for the home. Please don’t get dazzled by solar scam artists who are full of hype but can’t deliver on a quality solar panel installation.
