Today’s home buyer is keeping up; not with the neighbors, but with technology. Once, a fully appointed den or a media room was the most important thing for a buyer, but no longer. Today, with more and more people working from home, the most important feature has become the home office.
Home offices, once a rarity, have evolved into the hub of the house, the center of activity, controlling everything from one room. Home automation systems link lighting, heating and air conditioning systems as well as audio-visual equipment and security systems, and can schedule music, television or lighting. No longer just for computer people, today’s technology is a high end home amenity that can make your home stand out from the neighbors. Once upon a time, the den was the center of the universe in a home. Now, with all the advances in technology, the den is still important, but the home office rules the roost. Is your home techno-ready?
