Las Vegas Smart Homes, Info: Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Hi everyone,

So, you’ve got Fresh paint on the walls, professional staging and an asking price that ends in 999 — when you’re selling your home, you’ll do whatever you can to help it stand out and sell faster, as a seller you want every edge you can get. And on the heels of the popular Consumer Electronics Show in January, perhaps that edge is a smarter home.

Smart home features are designed to make homes more convenient, appealing, secure and energy-efficient — all of which are bonuses when you’re trying to sell a house, most Sellers who want to move their homes faster may benefit from adding smart features that make their properties more appealing to tech-minded buyers.

Here are six trending smart home features that might catch buyers’ attention and help sell your home faster:

* Keyless/remote entry door locks — Have you ever left the house and worried that you left the front door unlocked? If your home is equipped with a keyless/remote entry door lock — available from multiple manufacturers — you can use an app on your smartphone to lock the door from wherever you are. Some manufacturers make versions that will also send a text or email to your phone when the door opens. Locks that can be programmed with multiple entry codes also allow you to see who comes and goes and when.

* Smart lighting — From lighting automation that allows you to control lights remotely and wirelessly, to energy-efficient LED bulbs that can change color to match your mood and decor, lighting has come a long way. Some smart lights work in tandem with home automation systems to allow you to turn them on or off, or even dim them, from an app on a smartphone or tablet. Others require no communication hub and can be controlled directly from your mobile device. You can also put some smart bulbs on timers (using your wireless device), sync them with certain TV shows or movies, and integrate them with security cameras and thermostats.

* DIY security systems — Don’t want to sign a contract or deal with complex security systems? Install-it-yourself security systems are affordable and offer security features like cameras, sensors, motion detectors and alarms or sirens, without the need for a security service to monitor them.

* Smart appliances — The Internet of Things (IoT) — everyday objects that have network connectivity — includes a growing list of smart appliances. Many manufacturers are offering washers, dryers, refrigerators and other home appliances that can communicate with you — and each other — wirelessly. Many can be controlled remotely from your smartphone — so if you leave the house and can’t remember if you turned off the stove, you can check in and turn it off using your smartphone app.

While appliances aren’t always included in a home sale, they do make for interesting features that keep your home top of mind to buyers.

* Smart plugs — One of the easiest, most affordable smart home upgrades you can make is to add smart plugs to your home. These Wi-Fi-enabled plugs fit existing outlets and can be controlled from a smartphone app. Plug anything into a smart plug, like lights or a television, and you can turn it on or off remotely, track energy consumption, or even create an on-off schedule.

* Temperature controls — Programmable thermostats were just the beginning; today’s home temperature controls are even smarter. Like other smart home features, smart thermostats can be controlled remotely from your mobile device. You can program them to make automatic temperature adjustments and then use your smartphone to override the program like turning up the heat on a particularly cold day. Some smart thermostats learn from household behavior and adjust the temperature to meet your family’s needs and save energy, while others adjust based on the number of people in a room. And several can now be operated via voice-controlled virtual assistants.

So Many of these smart home features are surprisingly easy and affordable to install, Sellers who are open to the idea of investing a little money to possibly help get a speedier sale, may want to consider adding the smart features buyers will be looking for in 2017.

FSBO’s = For Sale By Owner homes in Las Vegas, Reason to call “Pink” Penny

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Hello there,

I highly encourage you to give me a call if you are considering trying to sell your place yourself..

 

Here is why:

My high amount of contacts with buyers/sellers/other agents and the marketing on the Internet is outrageous.  I have been helping people buy and sell in the Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, SW, NW and North Las Vegas for over 15 years full-time and I know the market, I know how buyers and sellers work.  This is my business, I am in the business of buying and selling homes.  I am not a banker, so I don’t do loans, I am not a Doctor, so, I do not do surgery.  I am a REALTOR, I help in selling and buying homes for my wonderful clients.

Do you enjoy working with Legal documents?  Do you really want to be responsible for the documentation that is required by the state of NV for selling a home in Nevada?  It’s a lot of work.  NO JOKE.

The paperwork involved in selling and buying a home has increased dramatically as the Las Vegas Real Estate industry disclosures and regulations have become mandatory. There are so many new forms and disclosures becoming part of the transaction, it is very important to know exactly what is required.

It’s not the case that you will save money selling your own property.  And, really, who will benefit the most if you are the seller trying to sell your own place?  Believe it or not, it will more than likely be the buyer.  Honestly, selling your own home sometimes doesn’t make sense.
