Introducing the First-Ever Smart Home Staging Kit


Take staging to the next level by making your home a smart home. The best part? The smart home staging kit packages them up for you in one discounted bundle.


We all know how crucial staging is when it comes to successfully selling your home – you may have even followed our agents’ best tips and tricks for staging. But what about smart staging?

Last week, 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.

These results were eye-opening: buyers are beginning to expect smart home technology built into their next home. To meet sellers’ needs, three top smart home brands, Nest, August and Lutron created the first-ever smart home staging kit – available to Coldwell Banker agents and their home sellers at a discounted price.

The Smart Home Staging Kit is available for purchase online starting today. The kit includes:

    Coldwell should include the iGuardStove product that I saw. It automatically shuts off the kitchen stove when people walk away and forget their cooking. It connects to the Internet to send text messages about the stove being used and other great home health and safety features. It’s brilliant. Its all about protecting family and your new home that Coldwell just helped you buy.
