Smart Home Technology More Popular in Denver

By Owning a Home, Specialty Homes

More and more, home buyers are beginning to think that buying a house with “smart” technology is a good idea. While smart home features were once considered a fringe benefit, more buyers are demanding them, and agents are taking notice. In fact, studies show that nearly two-thirds of agents have found that home buyers are more interested in homes with smart features and technology than they were just two to five years ago.

That’s why we asked over 18,000 local Colorado real estate agents, “What are the most interesting “smart” features you have seen in homes across the Denver Metro area?”

Refrigerator Creating Grocery List

Out of milk? Used the last of your coffee? A fridge that will scan the bar code, make a list, and text it to you. Even if you forgot your list at home, you can have access to it so you don’t forget to grab detergent.

Love the great new door bell system that will create the illusion you are actually home without answering the door.

Nest seems to be taking flight and showing up in resale homes. Just had a closing with this handy device, my buyer client is really excited.
