If they were selling a house in 2018, 42% of Americans agreed that they would look to their real estate agent to provide them with suggestions about how staging with smart home products and technology could impact their sale price. This proves that now is the time to begin familiarizing yourself with the latest trends in smart home features. The booming popularity of Amazon Echo is testament to how much we love voice-activated and smart technology in the home. When staging your next modern listing, here are a few smart home features to keep on your radar.
