Modern Homes Are Getting Smarter by the Second

Innovative technology is transforming the real estate marketplace. As today's buyers' design and select homes, they are weighing options that were nonexistent for homeowners 20 years ago. Modern houses, enhanced with smart technology, have become more than rooms and walls. They are integrated systems of efficiency, entertainment, and security, designed to cater to a high-tech lifestyle.

These technological advances can add value to your Maui Home(s) in creative ways.

  • Convenience: Control centers allow owners to manage almost everything in the home remotely. They can turn up the heat, turn on the lights, or turn off the television from around the globe. With remote access, homeowners no longer have to worry about misplaced or stolen keys. They can even grant entry to others while they are away from home.
  • Security: Wireless technology and video surveillance options have transformed home security. Systems can be added without drilling holes and hiding wires. Cameras and video technology allow personal, remote observation of the home inside and out. In addition to securing their home against crime, owners can check on Fido, confirm a package delivery, or enjoy peace of mind that the kids arrived safely home from school. Efficiency: Smart technology can provide greater efficiency for utilities, which can provide significant savings over the years. Improved temperature control technology, remote access to thermostats and better utility sensors can create a highly efficient home.
  • Linkage: The internet has added multiple new features to homes. Homeowners can link smart appliances, security systems, and more to connect every facet of their lives. The connectivity a home offers can boost its value to plugged-in buyers who are seeking modern networking capabilities. These smart technologies are becoming more affordable and more accessible.

It’s likely that more and more buyers can expect to find high-tech options listed among standard home features. These features are easy to add to your Maui Condominium as well, adding an extra level of peace of mind if your Condo is an investment property.
