Our latest survey found Americans and probably Canadians are thinking differently about move-in ready properties – they want homes that have smart tech already included.
Who says you can’t teach an old home new tricks? Today, Coldwell Banker unveiled the results of a survey it conducted with Parks Associates, which found that 44 percent of people who want a move-in ready home said smart home technology should already be installed. Another 57 percent would consider an older home “updated” if it had smart home technology.
Smart homes are getting popular among just about every age group. If given a choice between two homes where one was smart and the other was not, more than half of survey respondents would opt for the smart home. And it’s not just Millennials who want a smart home (although 61 percent would choose the smart home). 52 percent of Gen Xers and 50 percent of boomers also agreed.
