If you have invested in solar on your home, list with an agent who understands how to sell it…

I recently listed an urban home in Toronto. The house had significant energy efficiency improvements including Solar Domestic Hot Water and Solar Photo Voltaic Panels. Further the PV system had a FIT (Feed-in Tariff) contract guaranteeing 80.02 cents per KWh. While listing the property I was genuinely surprised at the diversity of understanding and appreciation of value perceived by both agents and potential buyers.

In the end we sold the property in a short time and beyond my client’s expectations. The successful Buyer valued the solar, and the energy efficient upgrades. Two offering agents asked if the seller would remove the panels as a condition of sale. This was a surprise.

If you are considering selling a property in Toronto which has Solar Hot Water, Solar PV, Ground Source Heat Pump, a Great Building Envelope, or even Electric Vehicle Charging Station please consider giving me a call. If I am not a good fit for you I can work with your Realtor to help them understand how to market your unique product with strongest market positioning. You have invested in these technologies. Let me help you get the most out of your investment.
