How a Smart Home Security System Can Help When Selling Your Home

Oct 31, 2018

Smart Security System

If your home has many similar features and benefits to that of other homes on the market - an open floor plan, an eat-in kitchen and a great school district - how can you, the seller, set it apart? One way is to use your professionally installed smart home security system to make it stand out.

Here’s how.

Secure Everything

When homeowner’s invest in a security system, their first thought isn’t typically resale and increased property values. The number one goal is the protection of the people and things that matter most. But, unlike major renovations, a home monitoring system doesn't require a substantial investment or disruption of your daily lives to install and it’s an investment you’ll likely get back when you sell your home.


Because every area of your home can be visibly secured. As potential buyers make their way through, they’ll see not only your keypad but your motion sensor lights, window and indoor motion sensors, video surveillance cameras and/or Total Connect™ cameras. If you have a wireless video doorbell, they’ll see that, too. And then they’ll envision their loved ones in a secure home and the peace of mind that brings.

Built-in Peace of Mind

You simply cannot put a price tag on peace of mind and personal security. Buyers are intrinsically looking for how safe a new home feels just as much as how safe a new neighborhood feels. Burglar alarms and security cameras bring an automatic peace of mind that some buyers might not have even considered before! You’ve now set the bar higher for those buyers and, when they ask questions, your local realtor now has several talking points that your competition may not have!

Automate Everything

Speaking of things that are automatic, everything in a Per Mar home can be automated. All homeowners have experienced that dreaded feeling of forgetting to lock the doors or shut the garage door. Perhaps your morning was especially hectic and the lights were left on or the thermostat wasn’t adjusted for a weekday when nobody is home. Why not use this as a selling point for your home to demonstrate the sheer ease of automated living? Forget turning around and extra trips home, not to mention higher electric bills, when it can all be done from your smartphone when away from your smart home!

Thwart Other Potential Dangers

As we’ve talked about before, nefarious people aren’t the only threat to your family and home. Carbon monoxide poisoning, fires, leaks, floods and other natural disasters are among some of the biggest hazards homeowners face. When a potential buyer walks through your home, they’ll be delighted to see the care you’ve taken in having a carbon monoxide detector on every floor of your home and smoke detectors strategically placed in key areas. When those detectors are integrated with your home security system, there is an extra layer of protection that is priceless when emergencies strike thanks to a 24/7 monitoring center and the instantaneous ability to call for help. If you’ve taken things a step further and installed environmental monitoring, you’ve only added more value!

Homeowner’s Insurance Discounts

Finally, hefty discounts are available on most home insurance plans when a comprehensive home security system and the appropriate smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are installed. This is just one more feature you can advertise on your home flyer that might set your house apart from the others, because, who doesn’t want to save money?

Protecting your loved ones and this quite large investment was always goal number one for you and there’s no reason to believe it wouldn’t also be goal number one for the next family inhabiting the house you once called home. Contact you local realtor to find out how you can best show your home and its many features and benefits!
