If you’re trying to sell your house, have you considered that having certain smart home gadgets can help you stand out to potential buyers?
Let’s jump into what smart home gadgets you’re going to need to make sure you have, because aside from helping you catch a buyer’s eye, some of these additions can even slightly increase the value of your home too.
Does anybody have on of the OG doorbells these days? Didn’t think so. Video doorbells are just the best, because you can see who is standing at your front door, even if you’re not even home. Also, if you haven’t looked at all the creepy videos featuring video doorbell footage on YouTube, go check that out. You’ll definitely want one then! The safety and security that a video doorbell provides is attractive for anyone looking to buy a house.
Who needs keys when you can have a smart lock? Never worry about getting locked out again! A smart lock works like keyless car keys: you have to be close enough and it just opens. Definitely a neat feature for home buyers.
Smart thermostats are amazing because they can actually help cut costs on heating and cooling bills, since you can adjust them from anywhere, so long as you have internet. You don’t even need to be home.
Smart LED Lightbulbs
Smart LED lightbulbs are a game changer. You can adjust them even when your’e not home, so this is another way to help you stay on top of your monthly costs and an attractive feature for home buyers.
Smart Smoke Detector & Carbon Monoxide Detector
While these might not be the most exciting gadgets on the list, smart smoke detector and carbon monoxide detectors eliminate those annoying AF beeps when the battery is low. Instead, you get a notification sent to your phone when batteries need to be replaced. Anyone can appreciate that feature!
Pro tip: before you get to buying these smart home gadgets to help you sell your house, make sure your real estate agent (if you’re using one) can easily explain the benefits to each gadget to your interested buyers!
