Municipal, state and federal government agencies have increased the number and breadth of programs available to help homeowners reduce their carbon footprints, and more continue to come through as time goes on. Environmentally friendly home improvements can save owners on utilities, all while increasing the house's value and curb appeal to modern purchasers. In Florida, support is heading to the next level.
CBS Miami recently reported that Dade County will begin to finance solar panel purchases and installations in a more unique fashion - allowing those residents who participate to pay off the bill as a part of their taxes. Not only will the prices be reduced, but the strain that would otherwise be placed on budgets will be alleviated by the structure of this particular program. Other municipalities and entities have launched similar incentive programs to get solar moving in their areas.
Home improvement-related loans are widely available, especially as increased demand for the financing options has led to a diversification of the market that offers them. Putting effort into modernizing the home can pay off dividends when it comes time to sell.
