Want to enhance your property? Home automation may be the right answer!
Investors always buy real estate with a view to selling and profit from it, making buying and selling a business and a source of income. But, even for those who do not belong to this group of people, the appreciation of a property is always welcome. And, in addition to traditional renovations, there is something that always values a property at the time of sale: home automation.
After all, who doesn’t want a technological home, full of facilities and comfort, with smart home devices, which communicate with each other and obey commands via cell phone?
Automating always adds value when selling. But, do you know how much automation can increase the value of your home or apartment?
According to a Coldwell Banker study, more than one in four US adults have smart home products, but that number doubles in the millennial generation. These owners are also happy with this technology. Nine out of ten homeowners who use smart home technology recommend smart home. In that same study, 57% of Americans believe they save 30 minutes a day thanks to home automation.
