Jason Wells, Home Buyer in Guilderland, NY
Jason Wells asked:
I am looking at selling in the next 3-4 years. Would a pre-paid 20 year Solar lease for $6300 be a bad investment? Basically would Solar panels raise the value of my home more than 6k? These panel would cover 70% of electrical bills for the new owner for the remaining 17-16 years.

how can I sell a house by owner? Your site does not have this option.
Trulia is an agent only platform at this time. You will have to list through Zillow and other for sale by owner sites.

Ryan Hoffman answered:
when is it time to cut list price?
I try for 30-45 days to start, if you are getting showings from the start as a new listing, then your are too high. After that, 45-60.
