Ready to take your home to the next level? Here are upscale tech upgrades to make your home smarter than a Furby, cooler than drone and safer than Gringott’s. That last one might seem like a stretch but if three kids could break in how locked down was it really? Anyways,  

The Dyson 360 Eye is an upgraded Roomba. It can be scheduled and operated by phone your phone from anywhere. Which means if you have an impromptu dinner party or the In-Laws are planning to stop by you can start cleaning with a quick tap of your finger. Or you can just set a schedule for it to run a few times a week while you’re at work so you come home to a tidy room.

August Smart Lock is a keyless lock for your home. Instead use your phone as a key which, let’s be honest you always have on you. The best part, however, is that you don’t need to replace your lock and you can still use your key at any time. You can double check to make sure your door is locked and closed on those harried days rushing the kids to the car. entry to home and control who enters home

Upgrade to a curved tv. The curve may seem unusual but it allows for better view no matter where you are in the room. When sitting directly in front of the tv you have the illusion of a wider viewing range as it mimics the curve of our natural sight. Create an immersive experience paired up with a surround sound system.

The Thermasol Microtouch brings the “smart” experience to your shower. Program your preferred settings to have the perfect shower every time. With a heat sensor, you can control the steam shower temperature. And of course, the device comes in several styles and finishes to match the existing hardware in your bathroom

The Dyson 360 Eye is pretty cool but what if you could have a smart lawn mower? Well, the team at Worx built the Landroid just for you. Program the cut height, lawn terrain and even to go back “home” when it’s about to rain. No more running to the gas station to fill up a jug, the Landroid runs off of electricity. It also has safety features to turn off if tipped and pin code access only if stolen.


Upgrade your home tech to upgrade your lifestyle. Spend more time with your family and doing the things you love instead of maintaining your home. Ensure your home is secure and locked up tight for those days you don’t even remember the ride to work. And create a luxury view experience for your home family.

Evaluating the current real estate market often offers a great way to help you map out your homebuying plans. This will enable you to examine the prices of assorted homes, determine which houses you like and define a price range for your ideal house.

Also, it never hurts to look at the prices of recently sold houses, either. This will allow you to see how quickly residences are selling and determine whether you're about to enter a buyer's or seller's market.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent is a housing market expert who is happy to help you make your homeownership dreams come true.

Typically, a real estate agent will set up home showings, keep you informed about new residences as they become available and offer honest, unbiased homebuying recommendations. He or she will even negotiate with property sellers on your behalf, ensuring you can get the best price on any home, in any real estate market.

With a real estate agent at your side, you can receive expert guidance throughout the homebuying journey. In addition, a real estate agent will respond to your homebuying concerns and questions, guaranteeing you can make informed decisions time and time again.

Contingencies are a great resource when it comes to both buying and selling a home. Both buyers and sellers tend to ask for certain contingencies to be included in the purchase contracts for a home. These contracts have a time limit on them to give both buyers and sellers time to get the things that the contracts state done. This time frame is usually somewhere in the neighborhood of several weeks’ time between the signing of the sales contract and the closing of the deal on the home.


Meeting And Removing Contingencies


During the time that you have between the sales agreement and the closing of the home, you’ll be working to either meet the contingencies or trying to have them removed. This can be done through renegotiating or having work orders completed. In some cases at this point the entire purchase may be called off.  


Standard Or Not?


Some contingencies are very common and it would be a bad choice to reject them. Buyer’s inspection contingencies, for example, are quite common. In this case, closing is subject to the approval of an inspection report. If a buyer really loves a property and is in the “desperate” category, they’ll often end up waiving this and take the home as is. Your realtor and attorney will be able to inform you of what types of contingencies are the norm. 


Some of the things that buyers and sellers see on these contracts are a little out of the ordinary or are less convenient. They become a matter of negotiation. Some sellers may ask that the deal is contingent upon them closing on another home. If you need a home in a hurry, you may want to reject this and request a time limit. As a buyer, you always risk failing to reach a contract with your seller when you ask for these changes. Anything that you’re able to handle in a contract is worth it if you really love the house, but there’s a balance. As a buyer, you can do the same, requesting a contingency that you sell your house before the new home is purchased. 


Financing 


Most standard home purchase contracts include a contingency that the buyer is able to secure financing to buy the home. There’s also a time frame for the intended financing to be secured. The only way to skip these contingencies is to have an all cash offer, which is pretty rare! 


Other contingencies that are almost a must include the inspection contingency and the title contingency. These protect the buyer in order to be sure that the home has a clean title and no major damage. These allow buyers to back out of a buying a home if there is more work to it than they thought. The title contingency also protects renters or squatters from selling a home that they do not own.
