Today, everything is directed toward going green and going “smart”. Therefore, there is a new complexity to the smart home and with that comes the need to easily manage all of its technology. Here are some important aspects of smart home technology, ranging from smart appliances to entire home entertainment networks, to give you a better understanding of where most homes will be in the near future, and how to sell.
Panels allow the home owner to take control of their in home technology by adjusting the air conditioner, diming lights, turning on and off appliances, and securing your home. What is so appealing about this is that you can do all of it using your smart phone.
Existing Homes can be transformed into “smarter” homes by adding things here and there to convert it into a green home, starting with smart appliances. They only operate when power costs and demand are low. For example, a smart thermostat learns a family’s routine and makes each individual room comfortable only when needed. When the family is out of the house, they won’t be wasting energy or money.
These important aspects of smart home technology form the buyer’s and seller’s expectations of how an investment in smart technology can make their home more attractive to today’s buyer. These technologies are not secluded to the high end listings anymore. Be ready for questions from sellers and buyers and start thinking green.
