there is a difference between updated and upgraded. Buyers often think
in terms of updating while sellers are looking at things from the vector of upgrades. Of course there is the nuance of a gray area between the two.

If you have owned solar that adds value to your home. Not what you
spent but it adds value. No 5 appraisers or experienced Realtors can agree
on how much it adds. It is usually a positive in most buyers eyes. Leased solar does not add monetary value per se to a home‘s value but it can be a positive for some buyers if we educate them on it. They will need to quality for the lease. Qualification is not a problem but some folks don’t want to lease anything In life.
