Karen Peyton answered:
A leased solar system is often a problem when it's time to sell. As you have experienced, Buyers don't want to be or become responsible for the lease. Unless you will buy out the lease there really isn't much you can do about it. From what I've heard the companies who lease the systems will not negotiate the outstanding payment due so you'll likely be on the hook for the full amount.

Maybe you can offer your next Buyer a credit (as a price reduction) to reflect the rental payment for a number of years or actually pre-pay the lease for a specific period of time. Of course this gesture won't lessen the burden of responsibility for the purchaser - just soften the blow.

Also, check out the qualifications to assume and transfer the lease. Better to present the "story" upfront, as opposed to providing the details later and have the Buyer change their mind.

Good luck to you!

Both Trulia and Zillow are refusing to publish our review of Joni Hinton who was our agent when we bought our first home. She played us for fools when we put our trust and faith in her. Our review was honest and included only facts, facts of course that reflect badly on her. How can the public ever be warned to avoid inept agents if these sites are protecting agents to this extent?! It makes us question the integrity of both these sites and what they purport to do for the public. ... more

There's no pat answer to this question because there are so many variables, most notably price paid, and "ability" to rent - which has nothing to do with actual monies received. If you have no experience (it sounds you don't) you will also need a property manager further eroding profit.

You need pencil and paper to make a decision. Several pencils and a notebook.

Good luck!

Yes. In Arizona it is legal - if you signed a Buyer Broker Exclusive Employment Agreement and agreed to pay a non-refundable retainer fee which is considered "earned when paid for initial consultation and research."

"Paperwork" may be part of "initial consultation and research" though not specifically addressed or worded as such in the agreement.

We just bought a home in Havasu and several friends have homes there as well..they have pools and its so wonderful to go over and enjoy their pool. Now we are thinking about putting in a pool as well. My question would be location...would that increase the value of our home depending on its location. Since we own the home outright would it be advantageous to just sell our current home and buy one with a pool already in it? ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
It really depends on the type of financing the buyer is trying to obtain.
For example with FHA, the down-payment is required to be funded by the buyer, though the borrower (buyer) can receive gift funds that do not require repayment - no loans for "down" allowed. Also, the "giver" cannot be anyone related to the transaction (e.g. seller, builder, or real estate agent).

If it were me and I were you, I'd ask your buyers to speak with their lender and first find out "what" if any assistance is available to them (down payment assistance programs) without your intervention, "before" asking about a seller carry which may or may not be permissible.

Consult also your agent (who has a much better view) for their input and ideas.

Good luck!!

As a rule of thumb (as yes there are many exceptions) costs will run 1.5 to 2% of the purchase price.
