As the world is moving forward day by day, so should
you. Even if you feel lazy and do not want to do it, well we are here to give
you a very good reason you should jump on the technology bandwagon. As
technology improves, it makes it more accessible and affordable. Smart Home
Devices or upgrades in your home won’t only make your home more convenient,
comfortable and efficient but these affordable upgrades would drastically
increase the value of your home if you consider selling your home.
Millenials consist a great portion of the present
real estate market and it would be very unwise to ignore them. Here is a list
of some smart home devices or products to make your home more convenient and
bump its price.
Smart Door lock: Upgrading to a smart door lock
gives you the convenience of never having to carry keys around or hiding a
spare somewhere where all your neighbors and thieves know where to check. Smart
door locks can use WIFI and/or Bluetooth to connect to your phone and know when
you are around and automatically unlock the door. They can be programmed to
allow access to whosoever you want to allow access to whosoever you want, so
you do not need to be around each time the real estate agent, a friend or
family member needs to get into your house.
Smart Vents: Smart vents can be customized to
regulate individual room temperatures, so no one is too hot or too cold. They
greatly save energy by room zoning. You can easily control how much air reaches
each area in your home, so if no one is in the guest room, for example, there would
be no need to cool or heat up the room and the smart vent would not send any
cold or hot air to this room, thereby saving you energy.
Smart Sprinkler Control: If you live in an area
where you need to constantly water your lawn or garden, a smart sprinkler
system would save you a lot of money and hassle. They can be programmed to
account for the season and weather. These systems can save a lot of water usage
and therefore reducing your bills.
Smart Lighting: Smart lighting systems can make you
easily turn lights off or on using your phone or computer. They can be
programmed to switch off automatically when you are not in an area or when you
leave home. These sensors can act as security as they have motion sensors and
can automatically switch on when someone is approaching your home to scare them
Smart Solar Panels: Solar technology is renewable
and a clean way to power your home. Solar Panels can save up to $2000 yearly on
your utility bills and are estimated to increase the value of your home by at least
Each and every item on this list range in the resale
value they add to your home, but they definitely add extra value than what you
originally paid for and would carry a certain appeal to buyers that other homes
in the same locale would not possess. I mean who would not love to live in a
smart home where they could just come home and the door is unlocked, the lights
turn on automatically and at the end of the month, they end up paying a cheaper
bill than they previously paid?
