Are you thinking of building a smart home? In the age of technology, smart homes are becoming the hot topic of the year. Since just last year, buyers are now more interested in homes with high-tech amenities than ever before. This is a major shift in what makes a house marketable. Knowing the ins and outs of what is happening right now can be a huge advantage in your own experience of building a custom home.

How about a crash course on ideas for new home building incorporating the current state of technology?

The Value of Safety

Not only does technology increase the value of your home, but it can also offer key safety benefits as well. Nowadays, safety can be derived from your own smartphone with new home security systems. Camera installations have never been easier, and the kicker is that you are able to monitor your home in real-time from the comfort and safety of your smartphone. When building your custom home, keep these add-ons in mind.

Limitless Smart Features

Home monitoring is not the only hot new product on the market that can be accessed using your smartphone. Thanks to new technology, you can even use your personal smartphone to control and manipulate multiple parts to your home. This is including but not limited to: lighting, temperature control, vacuuming, sound system manipulation, and even controlling grill temperatures.

Although stretching back four years ago, this data proved resourceful in a 2015 survey by Better Homes and Gardens. It stated that 68% of Millennials surveyed think that smart home technology is a good investment for their homes. A more recent study of buyers’ trends by the National Association of Realtors found this demographic represents the largest share of potential homebuyers.

Review, Plan, Learn

The data is in. Smart homes are the new wave of the future and by not hopping on board, you are only losing value in the long run. As mentioned above, most homebuyers are very attracted to smart home systems. Keep ahead of what is coming and plan accordingly with the future in mind.
