In light of AZ Central's July 17, 2015 article on selling and buying homes with solar, real estate experts Joe GO and Carol, together known as the Goyena Team, are advising sellers in the Phoenix and the East Valley areas that solar panels can add a dimension to the negotiations when it comes time to sell.

Having lived and worked in the Fountain Hills area for 30 years, Joe Go and Carol (the Goyena Team) know a thing or two about local real estate. One thing they know is how popular solar roofing is in the area. Recently, they have begun advising sellers that, while solar saves energy and money for the occupant, convincing a prospective buyer to take over the lease can be a challenge. Commenting on the aforementioned AZ Central article Carol agrees, “It important for sellers to get their ducks in a row before putting the house on the market,” said Carol. “You may think the option for a buyer to take over your solar lease adds value but many, not all, buyers don’t want to pay for a solar lease.”

Market trends show that homes with leased solar panels often sell for less than comparable properties that don’t have solar. On the other hand, Carol said, “solar systems purchased outright by the homeowner can add value and utility savings for prospective buyers.” A disconnect occurs when potential buyers consider taking over a leased system, for which they need to qualify. The Goyena team advises both buyers and sellers on the risks and benefits of including solar systems in real estate transactions.

Named “Business Persons of the Year” by the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce, The Goyena Team, married for 47 years, has sixty years of combined real estate experience. Both Joe GO and Carol are members of numerous real estate associates. Joe is an Army veteran and associate broker with a GRI designation. Carol was a participant in the SAAR Leader Class 7.

They have been a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Club since 1987 having sold over $377 million worth of real estate to date. Their success led them to be named Sales Team of the year for twelve consecutive years. The Goyena Team’s motto is “We Get Results, Because We Care!”
