Warning! The True Cost of Solar Panels!

Warning Solar Energy



Salesmen tell you that using Solar Energy is a great way to save tax dollars and that it's a sustainable and renewable source of energy. Saving money and being environmentally-friendly are both great things and the salesmen are being truthful when they say you can do both by switching to Solar. There are, however, a few things that aren't always considered into the original pitch on the sale of Solar Energy that everyone should be aware of.

Here at RE/MAX NOC we had a listing with a client that wasn't aware that when they purchased the solar that they'd be selling their home 3 years later. None of the prospective buyers found the lease on the solar panels appealing and the home couldn't be sold until the sellers themselves paid it off. The real cost of solar for our clients ended up being $57,000. They didn't end up saving any money from the solar purchase that they made and served as a huge warning to not purchase it again.

Going Solar can be beneficial but is not always the case. Please be careful! The switch to Solar Energy might not be as bright of a decision as you'd think!

Wendy (Wenxiao) Luo's Hard Work Pays off - Does 3.6+ Mil in February!


Wendy Wenxiao Luo Sold


Wendy (Wenxiao) Luo turns hard work into 3.6 Million in the month of February


Wendy (Wenxiao) Luo has been consistent in working hard and working until the job gets finished. Her persistence can sometimes be perceived as pushy but is actually driven by passion. She is willing to do whatever it takes to get her clients what they want. Her success hasn't come easy though, she worked diligently for years with differing results than the current 'top-producer-esque' month she had in February. 


Wendy Luo


In February she listed and sold a 1.37 mil home in Fullerton and represented buyers in Irvine and Placentia. The Fullerton home in particular was a tough one to sell as she was the 4th agent to list the home. To the clients surprise she ended up being the 4th and final agent because she was able to seal the deal by consistently holding Open Houses and working through a tough negotiation process.


Wendy Sold

From an outsiders perspective Wendy is all work and no play but she does find the time to have fun, not only away from the job but on the job and with clients. She knows how to balance her time and knows how to celebrate after life-changing sales and/or purchases with clients. The job is very tough and always a grind but is also very rewarding and is the reason Wendy believes it to be the best job in the world.
