I own a 9.69kW system with 34 panels on my roof. You can not see them from the street. From the back at the rear of my back yard, they are visible. They do not detract from the appearance of my home in my opinion and neighbors agree. After rebates, the system cost $22K, and the solar company estimated increased home value of $53K. I think that number is too high. Using $3 per watt instead of $5.50 per watt is probably more realistic, so that would be $29K. So I think I recovered cost through equity. Even disregarding that, I have no electric bill for 7 months of the year in a 5600sqft house and my annual bill is 30-40% of what it used to be. So if you stay in the home long enough before selling (between 5-10 years) then you will have recouped cost of system in energy cost savings. ... more

Personally just because you negotiated the sale price I would contact them again and have in your mind the cost of the total repairs and ask them to lower the price for you to afford the repairs. All final pricing is not final until the home inspection is done. What if you found a large crack in the foundation or in my case my furnace was broken for 3 yrs and I had no clue and the inspection person did not catch it. We had to keep putting water in the tube to get forced hot water in the radiators. This last winter I had my gas company check it out and guess what the sealer was cracked. Cost $6k. The water heater was leaking when we had the home inspection my neighbor said go to the gas company and have them put one in they maintain it for the time you have it. I purchased a 5br 2 bath for 134kand they paid my closing costs. We just finished putting new siding on yesterday.
You need to keep in mind 2 things they know what is wrong with the house so pointing out to them you know also may have them lower it. However, if they do not I would walk away. You do not want to be in over your head fixing things. The second thing is you as a new home owner will be fixing it your way and you have the time. This article was back on 5/13/16 what was your choice on handling it?

Hello Almightysavo, there is no such thing but if your meaning a lender to pre-approve you with your social security income that is not a problem. .

Do you have down payment and closing costs or do you need down payment and closing cost assistance programs? How much do you pay in rent and what is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve?

The purchase in 92107 zip code start from 410k for 1bd 1ba condo and up. You will need to be pre-approved to be able to know your purchasing power and how much you qualify to buy.

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. Any agent can assist you once you have a pre-approval letter from a lender like myself.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.
