Smart homes aren’t the future of real estate – smart home technology is already in homes today and soon becoming as commonplace as granite countertops.

Smart homes aren’t the future of real estate – smart home technology is already in homes today and is quickly becoming as commonplace as granite countertops.

Buyers are now expecting smart home technology to be included in their next home. In fact, in a survey conducted by Coldwell Banker, homeowners are willing to pay extra to “smart stage” their home, with 54 percent saying they would purchase or install smart home products if they knew that doing so would make their home sell faster. More than half of Americans (57 percent) also consider an older home “updated” if the property has smart home technology.

So what does it take to outfit a home and make it smart? It’s easy with the first-ever Smart Home Staging Kit, which includes products from three top smart home brands, Nest, August and Lutron.

The kit allows consumers to enhance their homes and meet the definition of a smart home as developed by Coldwell Banker and CNET, the leading online technology reviewer. The Smart Home Staging Kit is available for purchase online – speak to your Coldwell Banker affiliated agent for a coupon code –  and includes products in smart home product categories such as:

  • Smart temperature
  • Smart security
  • Smart safety
  • Smart lighting

The Smart Home Staging Kit can be purchased as a complete bundle or as standalone items. Consumers can also opt-in for installation by or elect other service providers of their choice. Once the kit is installed in your home, it can now be marketed as a smart home.
