8 SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY TRENDS THAT CAN SAVE YOU MONEY

The ‘smart home’ is the new ‘internet of things’, or objects that can serve you better by communicating with each other or directly with you through apps on your smart phone. In the ideal version of the wired future, all of our appliances and gadgets talk to each other seamlessly.

What could living in a smart home look like? Picture something like this:

The lights in your bedroom slowly illuminate to quietly awaken you in the morning, replacing the typical blaring alarm. The aroma of fresh brewing coffee drifts in and stirs your senses. Once the lights are all the way up, the heating system kicks on, just in time to warm up your room so you’re not shocked once you crawl out from underneath the duvet.

When you step into the shower, it turns on automatically and remembers your preferred temperature and water pressure. And it will shut off right when you’re finished as it knows how long you take to bathe.

Once you’ve driven out of your garage, your home alarm system arms itself. And it will only unlock automatically when it “sees” and recognizes someone else from your family approaching through programmed in biometrics.

Do smart homes really work this way right now? Not exactly…while you may find some of these smart features in certain homes, we haven’t reached the point where every feature intuitively knows what you want and when you wanted. However, each year we’re getting closer and closer toward that shiny, idealized ‘Jetson’ future.

Here are some trends that we see for smart homes, many of which may also help you save money:Image title

Smart Thermostats

Programmable thermostats that are synchronized with the clock have been around for decades.However, they’re often difficult to set and aren’t necessarily efficient; they simply turn on or off as programmed, whether or not you are there.

With the newer models, smart thermostats can be programmed to adjust the temperature when they sense you are present. And once you leave, they can kick back to standby mode so that you’re saving energy and money. Nestdoes all of this, and it also allows you to check your usage from your cell phone so that you can adjust the temperature remotely and save even more. I have 2 Nests in my home, and love them.   They paid for themselves fairly quickly, and it’s nice being able to check on and adjust them remotely.

Smart Smoke Detectors

Having a working, effective smoke detector saves lives. But unfortunately, many of us still have those battery-run smoke detectors that make that annoying, piercing beep when their batteries are running low on power. And instead of replacing batteries right away, it’s often easier to pull them out and disable the detector (while risking our lives).

Many of the new smart smoke detectors, like theBirdi, monitor smoke, carbon dioxide, as well as air quality. With this new sensor technology, they know the difference between a real fire and burnt toast.

Smart Sprinkler Control

Image title

Weather is our area is predictably unpredictable. Often, especially during the summer months, we fall into a severe drought. But then we might have one season that brings extreme amounts of rain, like we did this past spring.

A smart sprinkler controller likeRachio Irocan not only help save you lots of money on your water bill but also help protect our precious resources.

Programmable by computer or smart phone, it can automatically adjust how often you water your lawn based on the season and the weather forecasts. You can also remotely adjust the settings through a mobile app.

Smart Solar Panels

You can put the sun to work for you by using solar technology to power your home. It’s green and renewable, and can save you money over the long term. A recent study conducted by the NC Clean Energy Technology Center determined that Austin customers who invested in a solar system saved an average of $66 per month during the first year that they owned the system.

With smart solar panels, you can program the technology to monitor their performance and even turn them off in case of a weather emergency or fire.

Smart Home Security Systems

HImage titleome monitoring has become much more sophisticated in recent years. With the old-style security systems, you had to call in contractors to wire your home with monitoring sensors.

With new smart technology, you can simply place a few smart devices in your home to monitor movement and sense whether doors and windows are closed or opened. Some systems include audio and video monitoring, as well as sirens to scare off intruders. You get real-time feedback on security breaches through an app. And, because you’re alerted as soon as the system senses an intruder, it’s more likely that they will be caught.

Canaryis one popular all-in-one audio-video security system, complete with sirens and night vision.

Smart Locks

Image titleGo beyond the standard key locks, which can often be compromised by burglars. The new smart lock systems give you more control over those who can gain access to your home.

Some systems, like theKwikset Kevo, include encrypted virtual keys that you can program for access for a limited amount of time—for example, allowing guests over for a weekend, or cleaning service in during a specific window of time.

Other door locking systems include biometric technology. TheOla smart lockallows you to program your lock to recognize your family member’s fingerprints. Other systems use facial recognition to greet you and unlock your door.

The newAugust smart lockintegrates with Apple’s technology so you can ask Siri to open your door for you.

Smart lighting systems and light bulbs

Image title

A well-lit home feels warm and welcoming, and good lighting can instantly increase the value of your home.

However, annual lighting costs can account for up to 12% of your overall electric bill, or over $200 per year according to Energy Star. You can easily reduce this expense simply by using smart lighting technology to add efficiency.

ThePhilips Hue wifi-enabled lights make it easy to add to your home without installing specialized equipment. Smart lighting dimmers and sensors can give you more control over how much energy you use and allow you to turn them on and off through your smart phone.

New smart light bulbs can give you control over the warmth or coolness levels of your lighting. With theLifx LED light bulbs, for example, you can program your light bulbs to turn on or off when you want, to slowly wake you up with increasing illumination, or to change from daytime work lighting to entertainment-friendly shades for parties.

Smart Appliances

Programmable slow cookers and coffee makers are the quaint, old-fashioned versions of these home conveniences. Newer, smart appliances give you more control over how your food is kept and prepared, and make it easier for you to complete pesky household chores.

Newer coffee makers, like theSmarter coffee machine, let you ‘order’ your coffee exactly to your liking, adjusting everything from bean grind to temperature to strength to time that it’s ready to drink.

Smart refrigeration technology can help you store your food at just the right temperature, adjusting the thermostat during peak usage times. For example, theLG THINQ fridgecan alert you via smart phone app if a door is accidentally left open.

Smart ovens can ensure that your food is cooked to the right level of done-ness, and alert you when your meal is ready to eat.June, a new counter oven invented by former Google, Apple, Go-Pro and Path employees will give you even more control—it will contain cameras, thermometers, and other technology to ‘learn’ what you like to eat and make menu suggestions.

Smart washers and dryers have customizable controls so that you can safely wash any type of fabric. Some units include controls to increase drying time to save energy. And soon, connected appliances from GE, Oster, Samsung, and other makers, will be able to re-order soap and fabric softener directly from Amazon, so you won’t even have to think about running to the store at the last minute.

THE NATIONS HOTTEST ZIP CODE IS IN WATAUGA TX

Image title

Every month, we take a look at the nation’s hottest housing markets. But once a year, we get a little more granular. After all, when people are house hunting, it’s all about the neighborhood, right? So which specific hoods are buzzing with real estate action right now? The realtor.com® economic team sifted through our data to pinpoint the nation’s hottest ZIP codes.

We found some surprises, a couple of outright shockers, and a big geographical tilt to the western half of the U.S. And mostly, we found that older millennials, ages 25 to 34, are a key factor in turning up the heat. The top ZIP codes in our analysis all attract large populations of millennials with their affordable prices and strong job markets.

“Homes for sale in this year’s hottest ZIP codes are selling almost as quickly as they hit the market,” says Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for realtor.com. “While millennials are usually a significant presence in most markets, their sheer size and buying power have made them a force to be reckoned with in these hot ZIP codes.”

Smoke’s team based its ranking on how long it takes properties to sell in each ZIP code (an indication of supply) and how frequently homes there are viewed on realtor.com (an indication of demand).

Collectively, the 10 hottest ZIPs are seeing average job growth of 2.3% this year, which is 35% stronger than the national rate. They have an average unemployment rate of 3.8%, which is more than 100 basis points lower than the U.S. overall.

These hot areas are also magnets for people relocating, expanding their families, and moving out on their own. Over the past five years, the 10 hottest ZIP codes have seen an average of 6% growth in households, which is 20% stronger than the national average.

Home prices are a crucial variable in hotness. The median cost for a home in the top 20 hottest markets is $309,000, which is 27% higher than the national median of $243,000. So how, exactly, is that a good thing? Well, these neighborhoods actually represent less expensive pockets that give buyers a chance to live in or close to expensive housing markets. These ZIPs offer prices that are 22% cheaper than their surrounding counties and 18% less expensive than their closest major metro areas.

Image title

Median list price: $137,000

Local price comparison: 48% less than Tarrant County, 57% less than nearby Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington
Millennial strength: 65% of homeowners are millennials

Watau-wha? The name may not roll off the tongue, but this near suburb of Fort Worth tops our list of the nation’s hottest ZIP codes, with homes that fly off the market in just 17 days. And why not? Watauga is a youthful and relatively dense community, with a median age of 34 years. It has easy access to the city’s great restaurant and craft brewery scene, and cultural offerings like the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. Bonus: Two football powerhouses, the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Christian University, are less than 20 miles away.

5 Things That Factor Into Comps

FIVE THINGS THAT FACTOR INTO COMPS

You may think that sale price is the only factor when you’re looking at comps and trying to set a price for your listing. But it’s actually a bit more complicated. Here are five things that affect comps that you might not be aware of.

 1. New construction nearby: Because of low prices for lots and varying prices in home building materials, new homes can actually be cheaper and cost less per square foot than existing homes. If there’s a lot of new construction nearby, that can affect the price for your own listing.

 2. Renovations: Recently renovated homes typically sell for more than homes that haven’t been updated in a while. If you’ve recently upgraded your home—especially sought-after upgrades like the kitchen or master bath—your home should be priced appropriately.

 3. Developable lots: Not all lots are created equal. Even if the square acreage is the same, a lot that’s easily developable will get a better price than a hilly or rocky lot that needs a lot of preparation.

 4. Listing price vs. sale price: Whether sellers actually get their asking price depends greatly on the market. When you’re pricing your home, it’s important to look at sales prices, not just listing prices. The listing price doesn’t always accurately reflect what a home will sell for.

 5. Location: Nearby amenities, safety, schools, and noise levels can vary greatly within a neighborhood. Homes in more desirable parts of the neighborhood will sell for a higher price, all else being equal.
