The stately Craftsman style home at 1003 9th Street of pressed red clay brick near Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Colorado has caught the eye of many visitors to the area. A historic gem, it was built at the turn of the 20th century by the well-known Boulder brick mason, Benjamin Franklin Gregg, who later built the famous "castle house" also located on 9th. This hand chiseled brick home truly represents the work of a master and has elements reminiscent of the Queen Anne Style with many small craftsman details in the woodwork. It's just the type of home that as you drive by, it leaves you dying to see inside.

selling home with solar power

Solar powered energy is a popular source of clean energy that many homeowners are beginning to explore. But does solar increase or decrease the value of your home? The answer: it depends. There are a few key factors that can determine whether a solar power system will increase or decrease the home you are trying to buy or sell.

Buying vs Leasing

Solar is not cheap. Homeowners have the choice of purchasing a system outright, or entering into a leasing contract. If you choose to buy a system it can set you back $12,000-$20,000 which you may not see a full ROI once you sell the home. Another option is to lease a system, however typical contracts will lock you in for up to 15 years, making the transfer to a new homeowner tricky.
