CEA: Realtors, Buyers Interested in Home Tech
A large majority of home realtors, as well as buyers, are interested in home technology and consider it an important part of home sale decisions.
That's according to a survey of realtors released by CEA, which found that 93 percent of realtors have been involved in the buying or selling of a house with monitored security, while 89 percent sported a home theater pre-wire/system.
“There is a strong relationship between home technologies and the real estate market. While the market needs to recover before home technologies play a more important role in home sales,” Rhonda Daniel, CEA's manager of market research, said as part of the announcement.
