Consumers are warming up to Smart Home technology. In fact, a recent survey conducted by Coldwell Banker found that roughly half of millennials and 42 percent of U.S. broadband households surveyed would "smart stage" their home to attract buyers. The survey also found that more than one-third of Americans (35 percent) now associate smart home technology with a move-in ready home - something that 71 percent of Americans would want if buying a house today.
So how do you make your home smart? With a Coldwell Banker agent! Coldwell Banker Real Estate, LLC, has signed a supplier agreement with Worthington Group, Ltd., to directly supply the industry's first Smart Home Staging Kit directly to sellers who list their homes with Coldwell Banker®.
The Smart Home Staging Kit was jointly developed by Coldwell Banker and CNET, the leading online technology reviewer. Coldwell Banker agents can then market qualified properties as a Smart Home bearing a Smart Home icon on the listing and inclusion on the brand's smart home resource site, coldwellbanker.com/smarthome.
The kit includes:
Nest Learning Thermostat
Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm
Nest Cam Indoor security camera
