Will a Solar System Affect My Property Value?

Auswell Energy explains whether adding a solar system to your home will affect your property value.

Are you considering installing solar panels on your home but wondering how it will impact your property value? This is a common question for homeowners as the solar industry continues its rapid growth across Australia. The good news is that it is now widely agreed that adding solar to your home will boost your property value and appeal to potential buyers. In fact, 77% of Australians believe that a home with solar panels is more valuable than a property without. 

As providers of Brisbane solar power solutions, we outline the key ways solar energy systems can actually increase the value of your property. 

Increase in Demand for Solar Homes

Solar panels have seen a surge in popularity in recent years, as more Australians recognise the financial and environmental benefits of generating their own renewable energy. This has led to an increase in demand from home buyers for properties with an existing solar system. 

Thus, many buyers now actively seek out homes with solar panels already installed. For these buyers, purchasing a solar home means moving in and immediately enjoying the savings from lower electricity bills. There is no hassle of having to arrange installation and approvals – the system is already in place, generating free power from the sun. With electricity prices continuing to rise across Australia, having an existing solar system is becoming an even more attractive feature for home buyers.

As providers of Brisbane solar power solutions, we have noticed solar energy now becoming firmly embedded in the mainstream, and becoming a selling point for homebuyers.

particular concern for owners of traditional-style homes, such as Queenslanders.  However, today’s solar panels are sleek, incredibly thin, and low-profile – nothing like the bulky solar panels of the past.

Furthermore, when designed and installed properly, solar panels look like a seamless part of your roof. Thus, you can rest assured that your solar system will not negatively affect the aesthetic appeal of your home. If you have concerns surrounding the placement of your panels, speak to your installer.
