Home Automation Systems Add Value to Real Estate Investments

According to the latest trends, one of the best ways to boost your real estate holdings’ value is to install home automation systems. Of course the return on your investment will depend on several factors, including the type of system and how it was installed.

When selecting a home automation system for investment purposes, there are several elements that you may want to take into consideration. One of them is the type of electronics and appliances being used. Ideally, they should be Energy Star rated and capable of being safely recycled or repurposed at the end of their life span. That’s because according to LEED for Homes Illinois’ data, environmentally friendly measures may help increase a home’s value by 20%.

In addition, home automation systems that are capable of being easily upgraded and customized are also worthy of consideration. The reason why that’s the case is a simple one. They essentially allow potential buyers to better envision how your home can improve or fit into their current lifestyle. For example, a home automation system that allows for the addition of adjustable outdoor sprinklers may appeal to avid gardeners. Avid swimmers, on the other hand, may appreciate a set-up that allows them to remotely increase their pool’s water temperature instead.

As mentioned earlier, quality installation also helps. For proof, just take a few moments to talk to your trusted, area realtor. Over the years, many real estate pros have publically bolstered the importance of a quality install. They’ve also noted that potential buyers want home automation systems that are attractive, easy to maintain and use. In our mind, that means minimizing the appearance of wires, controls and other elements that may otherwise detract from a home’s décor.
