Summer and Pandemics Pose Additional Risk: Here’s How Alarms Can Help

Even in Brentwood, Tennessee’s most high-cost neighborhoods, crime can happen when you least expect it and usually with zero notice. Also, keep in mind a statistic we found in an FBI report: Around every 15 seconds, a burglary occurs in the U.S. Another shocking stat: Those without a monitored alarm system are three times more likely to experience a break-in than someone with a system.

That’s why we at Symspire always recommend a reliable, easy-to-use system that homeowners can trust around the clock and throughout the year. We’d be remiss not to inform you that certain seasons and conditions bring higher risks than others, and now is not the time to skip a home alarm installation. Keep reading to learn why and how an alarm system can ease your mind and protect your family.

Why Homebuilders Should Install Home Security Systems

Think “Safety First” When Building Homes in the Thompson’s Station Area

As the adage says, "Build it, and they will come." In the real estate world, it's more like, "Build it, and hope that they will buy it for the right price." Home builders can command higher prices for their properties here in the Thompson’s Station area with pre-installed home security system features. Find out how in the sections below.

Earn More for Your Investment

While no single house can fit the needs of every buyer, you do have some control as a builder: You can significantly boost the value of a home (and your chances of selling) by installing security features into the original house. In fact, a recent Coldwell Banker study estimated that nearly half of younger homebuyers would invest $3,000 extra for a home with smart features. In fact, you could be missing out on opportunities by not building some smart features into new homes. According to Travis Gray of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, "Smart home technology will soon just be expected in homes, just like stainless steel and granite are the norm across properties today...I foresee homes being completely outfitted with smart technology -- for improving both functionality and lifestyle in our homes."

Bottom Line: Buyers Want Security

Since many homebuyers here in the Thompson’s Station area plan to build smart features into their homes years after purchase, it's no surprise that they prioritize smart security. Buyers think safety first when buying homes, and builders should take note. Consider Coldwell Banker’s 2018 Smart Home Marketplace Survey, released in January. Of the 3,000 potential American homebuyers surveyed, at least two-thirds of all respondents said they would like home security system features such as smart surveillance cameras, smart carbon monoxide detectors and smart fire alarms pre-installed in their new homes.

Safe Bets That Impress Buyers

What are some smart features that customers look for before they buy? Here are three key elements you should consider during the installation process.

  • Smart Locks – Locks symbolize safety to the consumer -- keeping their loved ones inside and intruders out. Connect the lock to a central hub within the home for the homeowner's convenience. With a simple smartphone signal, doors can be locked or unlocked, and homeowners can give friends and family temporary or permanent access.
  • Smart Doorbells – Every time someone walks up to the door, residents will see who it is before deciding to answer by viewing the video surveillance, sent straight to the owner's phone or TV.
  • Professional Monitoring – Work with a home security company that not only can expertly install systems in your new properties but also can offer 24/7 remote monitoring. Homeowners love peace of mind. Give potential buyers the option for remote monitoring so they don’t have to work to find a security company on their own.
