Does Smart Technology Offer Tenants More Options? Yes!
There’s no doubt that smart technology is seemingly everywhere these days and Alexa, Cortana or Google has their digital hands in just about every part of our lives but should you add smart technology to your rental properties? The answer is yes.
As a leading home management company in San Jose CA, we can tell you that the top smart technology upgrades that you should consider making for your property this year include the following.
The smart thermostat tops our list as the top smart technology device that should be added to rental homes in 2019 because it makes keeping a home heated or cooled at an optimal temperature so much easier plus reduces overall energy costs as well.
Cost – $150 to $500 depending on the smart thermostat that you choose.
The “new kid on the block” is the smart refrigerator. These units are excellent for ensuring that everything in your fridge from your vegetables to your soda stay cooled at the correct temperature. What’s best of all about smart fridges is that with them you can easily keep track of what’s in your fridge and possibly use the apps on your fridge to reorder food or supplies for your home without leaving your house.
Cost – $1500 to $3500
