Over the last several months many buyers have been requesting to see homes with “Smart Technology” so I thought it would be a great idea to let you know the items most requested. These small, really cool changes can add value and make your home more desirable.

• Smart Home Security Systems can make your home stand out, and you won’t have to shell out thousands of dollars to make your home shine. Additionally, smart home features may signal to buyers that the home is updated and may have other desirable traits, upgrades or features. (Suggestions are Nest Learning Thermostat & Honeywell Lyric 5 for Thermostats and Comcast and ADT for Smart Security Systems). • Alexa & Google Home – Voice Command for your entire home. You can do things like controlling your stereo system, turning lights on and off and controlling your thermostat. (Alexa/Google Voice). • Video Doorbell – Ring is the most popular right now. You can see who is at the door on your phone whether you are home or not and actually speak to them.

Other “Smart” upgrades that can increase the value of your home are:

• Tankless Water Heaters - never run out of water because they heat your water on demand, instead of storing 40 or 50 gallons of hot water. • Smart Door locks, Smart Sprinkler controls, Smart Air conditioners and Smart appliances

Last but certainly not least is Solar Panels – only if you want to eliminate your electricity costs for as long as you own your home. The best investment I’ve ever made!
