Smart home tech in South Florida!

According to an article shared by Daily Real-Estate News via REALTOR® Magazine, “More home owners are adopting smart-home technology, and that will likely impact buyers’ purchase decisions in the future, according to a new joint survey of about 4,000 Americans by Coldwell Banker and CNET.”

The article adds, “Twenty-eight percent of respondents say they own at least one smart-home product, and nearly half of millennials, ages 18 to 34, say they plan to adopt smart-home technology.  Of those who currently use it, 81 percent say they would be more likely to buy a home if smart products — such as connected lighting and thermostats, remote-access security, and smart locks — were already installed.”

The article also notes that, “Eighty-seven percent of smart-home owners say the technology makes their lives easier, and more than half say it saves them time (an average of nearly 30 minutes per day).  Forty-five percent also say that, on average, they’ve saved more than $1,000 a year with smart-home technology.”
