Digital Upgrades to help you sell – In our latest addition of “Insights on Real Estate” it describes technologies that can make your home more attractive to prospective buyers. Experts say these digital upgrades could give you a leg up on other sellers.
- Smart door bells – These door bells are equipped with microphones or cameras that are activated when someone approaches the door or rings the bell. With the use of your smartphone you can hear or see who is at the door. And respond to them – even if you’re not home!
- Smart locks – These locks can be opened with a tap of your phone. Or just close proximity to the door via a Bluetooth connection. They are convenient and eliminate the need to pass out extra keys to house guests or regular house workers such as cleaning services or contractors.
- Smart lighting – Light bulbs tied to smartphones can give homeowners a feeling of luxury. With many options available such as synchronizing the lights to come on at a certain time. Alerting you for incoming messages and coordinating with all your appliances to mimic your regular activities. Smart lighting gives the impression you’re at home even when you are not!
- Smart thermostat – Climate control systems can learn from your behavior. They adjust accordingly – creating greater comfort and better energy efficiency. Installing a smart thermostat could feel intimidating to a new homeowner, but having one already installed in the house could be a deciding factor for buyers.
