Buying a Green Home in Arizona

Buying a Green Home in Arizona 

In September 2012, a Chicagoland homeowner purchased a new-buildGreen Home, Jan Green Scottsdale Shea Xero home in Peoria, Arizona using my services and elected to include solar panels with the home purchase.  The solar panels are typically supplied to the buyer of a production built home via solar lease.  In this instance, the buyer chose to pay off the solar panels in advance as he was also paying cash for this Green Home in Arizona. 

Catching up with this client at his primary home in Chicago, we chatted about their furnishings and changes to the home and most importantly, his utility bills.  Most second  homeowners, commonly called "snowbirds", purchase second homes in Arizona so that they can escape the cold winters in the Northern and Eastern states, so this type of home buyer is a common phenomenon in Arizona.

Wintering in Arizona is a serene existence.  Our daytime temperatures seldom drop below 50 degrees and we're known for over 330 days of sunshine.  Good thing because that sunshine is a power producing source that can literally power our homes.  Arizona is also known for being one of the top solar states because of that sunshine for our Green Homes in Arizona.

And selling these types of homes isn't that difficult with the right tools, forms, disclosure, appraisal and marketing.  So if you're looking for a Green Home in Arizona call me

Having spent many years and many winters in Chicago myself I think your buyer is going to be thrilled in his new home and the lack of electric bills is just icing on the cake.

Jan, I would imagine AZ would be high in the stats for a great location for solar power.   Having no electric bill is worthwhile, and nice to hear your Chicago buyer opted for solar.

Scott - You understand utility bills all too well!  Definitely having low or no bills is a great way to live and own a home.

Joan - You're right. Arizona is the perfect place to take advantage of abundant sunshine.  It's exciting when clients make these types of choices, and to be involved.  Great clients, too!
