Installing the right security system in your home is not just important for the safety of your home, but also, it can be a nice catalyst to increase your home’s worth. This is particularly important if you have intentions of selling your home in the near future, or if you are in the process of selling the home and you wish to ramp up its value by a few thousand dollars.
Here are some of the systems worth considering for such an endeavor:
With smart lights, homeowners have the ability to turn lights on and off with the help of mobile devices, voice-activated technology or by using other preset schedules. Since potential buyers are keen on deterring thieves from gaining access to their premises, these lights will be appealing to them as it integrates technology and their safety in a seamless manner.
Home alarm monitoring
This is becoming increasingly popular in Canada and it goes without saying that homes with fully functional home alarm monitoring systems, will fetch more than those without such a security feature. With a home alarm monitoring system already installed, the buyer will be inheriting a more secure home, and they will have avoided having to buy and install a new system, unless they wish to. It makes it easier for them and they will not mind paying a slight premium for the home.
Sensors and detectors
Fire alarms and carbon detectors will, in addition to increasing the value of the home, allow buyers to gain more trust in the home and increase their inclination towards buying it. It is also worth having additional protection from environmental hazards such as water sensors and sensors to prevent pipes from bursting, so that homeowners can be warned adequately to avoid potential flooding of the house. These will collectively increase the home’s value and will allow you to obtain more money when selling the home.
