Smart Homes & Smart Homeowners

By 2020, the global home automation market will be worth over $121.73 billion.* From (The Clapper) of yesterday to today’s remote monitoring features, smartphone hub systems can manage your home through your smartphone or tablet. 

Most people are interested but don’t ask about home technology when viewing a home. Smart home tools can be used for safety (locks, security, monitoring), privacy (lights) and energy usage (thermostats) to drive down costs. Cameras are an added benefit, but not necessary and some use  technology for doorbells, smart appliances, voice control and let’s not forget about music.

Adding smart technology features may increase the interest-in and the value of your home. A move-in ready home should have smart technology, don’t be afraid to ask about it!
