The Link between Luxury and Smart Home Technology
Imagine turning up the thermostat without leaving the comfort of your living room or checking to make sure the garage door is closed from a resort on the other side of the world. In the high-end properties of today, smart home technology has completely redefined the term, “luxury.” When it comes to the luxury real estate market, this integrated technology is not only highly desirable, but expected.
Terrie Cox, RE/MAX Equity Group understands the role smart home technology plays and will continue to play in the future of luxury. If you’re in search of a high-tech luxury home in the Portland-Vancouver area, get in touch with Terrie today.
The Appeal of Smart Home Technology
Over the years, luxury homes have become more alive thanks to smart home technology, and an increasing number of high-end homebuyers are in the market for houses that are comfortable and smart. This internet-enabled, voice-activated ecosystem of devices typically can be controlled with a single device, transforming the way modern luxury households are run.
Besides smart TVs, which let you search for and play titles using only your voice, smart home tech also includes Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats, speakers, water-leak detectors, lighting controls, security cameras, vacuum cleaners and much more. There are even appliances, like refrigerators, ranges and dishwashers, that can assist you in the kitchen by letting you check on ingredients, preheat the oven remotely and monitor how much energy is required for cleanup.
In luxury homes, premium smart home tech contributes to higher selling prices. That’s because homebuyers in the high-end home market prefer to personalize the systems based on their own entertainment and security preferences, and a home already installed with built-in smart home capabilities and features is ready to customize and naturally more desirable.
