The concept of a smart home began as something reserved for the wealthiest homeowners. But as smart technology has become more common and easier to produce, it has also become more accessible to the average property owner. It won’t be long until it is a necessity at the top of most buyers’ lists. That’s why it’s important to take into account how much resale value a project will yield when you consider upgrading your home with new smart technology.
Here are a few of the smart home features with the best return on investment to help you determine which are the most worthwhile for your needs and goals!
Home Automation Systems
In the age of the smartphone, people want everything they need to be right at their fingertips. Smart home automation systems make that possible by giving you remote access to all of your home’s major systems and features in one central hub. With a single remote or phone app you’re able to control your lighting, security, thermostat, garage doors, appliances, and even your drapes! The convenience and comfort of home automation is sure to grab any home buyer’s attention.
Smart Lighting, Heating & Cooling Systems
Integrating smart technology with your major utilities makes it easy to keep your home climate comfortable and set to your preferences. This level of temperature and lighting control will also reduce the amount of energy your home uses each month, saving you money on utilities and making your property more sustainable—a big selling point in today’s real estate market. If you pair your smart utilities with smart appliances, you’ll maximize your savings and home value even more.
Security & Surveillance Systems
Smart home security and video surveillance offer protection for your family, belongings, and your entire property. This makes it one of the top investments in terms of ROI. Technology that safeguards you and your valuables increases your home’s value and gives you (or whoever may be looking to buy your property) peace of mind. Some of the biggest smart security features prospective homeowners are looking for include video doorbells, facial recognition software, and remote camera access/control.
