This part of Trula is for home buyers to ask questions. If you have a question to other professional real estate professionals, then go to the PRO forum. If you really don't know why it is so hard for someone to purchase a home under 200K then you need to ask your broker for advice in this area. ... more

This sounds to me like a disclosure issue. First and foremost as the agent that is representing you to investigate the status of the solar panels:

1. Are the solar panels leased? - if so you need to see the lease

2. Are the solar panels paid for? - If so you still need to see the original contract as some of it applies to you as to the warranties on the solar panels

3. You need to see the agreement between the power company and the home owner stating the watts and structure of the power connection.

Solar panels and home ownership concerns and transfer of ownership are becoming a complicated problem, but it does not have to be as long as everyone is informed of the status of the solar panels.

Good luck to you!
Here is a blogpost I wrote about solar panels and home selling:

That could be tough unless your willing to find a homeowner you could really trust and put the boat registration in their name and allow them the use of it when the wish to use it. I sat on the first HOA board when CL was developed in the 60's and clearly remember making it very difficult for that to happen.

Not sure how much the original CC&R's have been altered since then but the whole reason for it was to prevent a lot of boats from getting on the lake that were not owned by lot or homeowners.

There could be many reasons for this happening. The strength of the offer could be a big reason. Contingencies, inspections, and bank roll could all play factors. An example would be how much money does a specific buyer have in his bank account. A buyer that has millions of dollars is considered a much stronger buyer. As an agent, we try to get the best offer and the highest isn't always the best offer. Let's say a short sale went on the market for 250k. Buyer A makes an offer for 250 and only shows 255k in the bank. Buyer B makes an offer for 245k but shows a million in the bank. Sometimes short sales can take up to 6 months to close. Buyer B is a better offer to go with because he will most likely have that amount 6 months down the road. I say this because as a listing agent, this example has happened to me. I had to find another buyer 4 months later because the original buyer did not feel comfortable spending all of their money on one property. I would say 20,000 is a big difference though. ... more
