Smart Home = Sold Home.
Digital Design Group partners with the Realtor Association Of Sarasota and Manatee
Last week marked Digital Design Groups first event as a RASM Business Partner. We specifically chose the the Realtor Safety course as home security is a big part of what we do. In our brief introduction, the owner Benny Carino, spoke of a few of the technologies that can help realtors and their clients keep themselves and the properties safe such as keyless locks, video surveillance and security alarms.

We especially loved the idea Andy Tolbert from Compass Training Center mentioned of a Panic Button System in your offices. We would be happy to provide more information on how easy and cost effective that is to implement! There is never a charge for our Site Surveys, Proposals or Consultations.
Additionally if you’re interested, we would be grateful for the opportunity to discuss our services on an group basis. Several companies have already taken advantage of our complimentary Lunch & Learn programs. These programs can be tailored to your business and are designed to keep you up to date and competitive in the emerging Smart Home market. A realtor doesn’t have to know how to hook the stuff up but if they walk past a Nest, for example, we can help you be knowledgeable about it.
“Our latest research indicates that 71 percent of Americans want a move-in ready home — what was shocking was that of those, 44 percent believe ‘smart home ready’ is part of that equation.” Dave Siroty, Coldwell Banker Realty VP.
In short, the tech doesn’t just make the home more livable – it makes it more sellable.
Many people think a “Smart Home” is very complicated and expensive and that Smart Home features are only found in the newest, highest end homes. However the industry defines a Smart Home as one that has a smart security or a smart temperature feature, in addition to a reliable Internet connection. Additionally, the home will have at least two additional features such as smart appliances, connected entertainment, smart lighting or a safety feature.
A Smart Home could be as simple as one security camera, a smart lock and an AppleTV. For example, Amazon Alexa, Sonos sound and Nest alarms are a few name brands you may already be familiar with. In today’s market however it is becoming a part of what buyers are expecting in “move-in Ready” homes. The following article is a brief note on this growing trend.
