Why you Should be Building Smart Homes

Why you Should be Building Smart Homes

Unlike the popcorn ceilings and endless granite days of old, it seems like smart homes are the latest home trend - but they’re here to stay.

A smart home is one they can grow with

You can provide a home truly designed with your buyers in mind by incorporating the blueprint for convenient, functional and accessible technology early on in the build process. Include the necessary infrastructure to add on to as technology and needs change, so that your buyers can feel comfortable settling into and growing in their new home. Whether it’s a high-end, all-encompassing system or just a few pieces accompanied by a central hub, they’ll be able to live comfortably, with the ability to control their climate, lighting, security, entertainment and more - whether they want their tech to stand out or blend in seamlessly.

Safety and security aren’t trends - they’re the standard

Every homeowner wants to be sure their home, family and belongings are safe. You’ll keep installers and your buyers happy if you’re able to plan ahead in the design for this highly-desired and necessary feature. With endless technology available to keep your home safe, including cameras, smart door locks, window sensors and other features, you’ll want the infrastructure in place for whatever comes your way. These features aren’t “add-ons” anymore - they’re part of the standard package. 

Deck out your model with the best

Having an impressive smart home as your “base model” means you’ll be setting yourself apart from the competition - and that’s sure to get any buyer’s attention. Your model should feature an all-encompassing security system, a whole-home audio system, as well as lighting and shade control that can be customized based on the time of day, a mood or event, and so on. 

There’s so much more to consider when building a dream home than where to place your Echo. Your model home(s) should be outfitted with more than your standard smart home package so that you can show your buyers every design possibility. In using your model as a smart tech showroom, you’ll be able to offer more customization and personal touches that they might not have known were possible.
