The Real Estate Industry and Selling Homes with Solar

Tuesday, December 11, 2018 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

This webinar looked at the issues homeowners with solar can face when they go to sell their house, the ways in which the real estate industry can prepare to help solar homeowners sell their home, and how state agencies and the solar industry can educate solar homeowners so that they are well prepared to sell their house without difficulty.

Janelle McGill, a Colorado realtor who has been engaged in training real estate professionals on solar, identified some of the issues that homeowners can face, discussed the role of various parties (i.e., real estate agents, appraisers, lenders, title officers), and made suggestions for the types of information state agencies and the solar industry could provide to solar homeowners.

Pamela Brookstein of Elevate Energy described the training her organization has provided to the real estate industry, identified issues that emerged through the training program, and commented on the types of information and training real estate professionals need to help solar homeowners sell their home.
