Homebuyers today want the latest technology, even in an older luxury home. It’s important to ask what “smart” features are already installed. A security system is an important feature, as are other safety measures such as locking gates, motion-detecting lights, or even surveillance cameras.
Smart devices aren’t just for luxury homes anymore. For a reasonable price, just about anyone can view a doorbell camera or adjust their thermostat with a smartphone. But the buyer of a luxury home might expect features such as automatic or voice-activated lighting, window blinds, sprinkler system, and entertainment system. A whole-house generator can eliminate the inconvenience of a power outage. Heated floors may be in many new homes, but did you know there are radiant heating systems that will melt the snow and ice from walkways and the driveway?
All of these smart devices can make life not only easier but more luxurious. A buyer will be interested in what the house can offer, or how much extra it will cost to install such amenities.
