How to Increase Your Property Value with Smart Home Upgrades

smart home tipsWe all know that upgrading certain fixtures and appliances in your home can significantly increase its appraisal value, while also making the property more marketable to buyers. The same is true for smart technological upgrades to your home—you can command a bigger asking price by investing in smart home technology. Read on to learn more about how making SMART choices for your home can have your potential buyers lining up!

Why Do Smart Upgrades Pay Off Well?

Smart upgrades to your home have a great return on investment for several reasons, but the biggest one is because they increase your home’s energy efficiency, which can save new homeowners money as soon as they move in. They won’t have to pay for the upgrades themselves, and they get to enjoy the benefit of an energy-efficient home that offers convenience along with built-in savings on utilities for years to come.

Homes with smart features are also becoming even more common, raising the standard on what buyers expect when they view properties. In fact, nearly 70% of people have at least one smart home device, according to a study by the Consumer Technology Association.

Get an Edge Over the Competition

The housing market is favorable to sellers these days, but having a competitive edge still helps you command top asking price—or above! A home with smart capabilities is a big perk for potential buyers and can really help your property stand out above others. If you envision buyers in a bidding war for your home, offering tens of thousands above asking price, making those highly coveted smart upgrades can really pay off. Of course, there are no guarantees, but even if the market changes, your smart home technologies will only make your property more attractive to potential buyers—and that’s just what you’re going for as a seller.
