Make Your Home Stand Out to Buyers With Smart Tech Upgrades

by Selina Zhao 04/01/2024

If you’re putting your house on the market, you’re likely trying to find every way to increase buyer interest. There are many things you can do to boost home value and attractiveness to potential buyers. One thing that has become increasingly effective in modern home sales is smart technology. If you’re interested in adding some easy smart home upgrades to help your home stand out, here are some suggestions:

Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are an easy value-add to your home. Not only is it a convenient feature for future homeowners to have, it comes with the added selling point of being energy-efficient. Smart thermostats can help save a sizable percentage on utilities in several ways. One key way they work is by automatically raising or lowering the temperature in the room based on the amount of activity. Smart thermostats can sense when a room is empty and automatically turn down the heat or AC to save energy.

The ability to connect to smartphones is another major advantage of smart thermostats. Once potential buyers find out they can control their thermostat with just a few buttons on their phone—from anywhere—they’ll be able to imagine themselves making it their new home.

Advanced Smoke & CO Detectors

Smart smoke and CO detectors bring this ubiquitous safety feature to a new level. Not only do they have the latest and greatest in smoke and carbon monoxide detection technologies, they connect to your smartphone. These smart detectors can send you a special emergency alert to your smartphone if they go off. This can help you keep your home and belongings safe when out of the house and also keep housemates and loved ones informed.

Another great function of these smart detectors is they can warn you when the battery is getting low. Getting a text message reminder to change the batteries is much more pleasant than piercing beeps in the middle of the night.

Video Doorbell

Video doorbells are easy to install and have become more affordable even as technology improves. With a video doorbell, you can see and record live footage of your front (or back) door to see who’s knocking. It also lets you see delivery people, so you’ll never miss a dropped off package again. You can connect your video doorbell to a security system to make it easy to alert the authorities in case of an attempted break-in or theft from your porch.

These smart home upgrades are simple to set up and well-worth the money. When potential buyers find out about these new advanced features, your home will stand out in the market.
