How to Sell a House in Harrisburg PA - Wire Your Home to Sell!

How to Sell a House in Harrisburg PA - Wire Your Home to Sell! Home buyers are ga-ga over gadgets; so, if you want to get the edge when you sell a house, wire it!

A survey by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) says home security systems, home theater-wired systems, home automation management systems and energy management systems are hot selling points if you want to know how to sell a house.

"There is a strong relationship between home technologies and the real estate market," said CEA's Rhonda Daniel.

CEA said the vast majority of real estate agents have encountered homes with installed technologies.

In the past 24 months, nine in 10 real estate agents have been involved in buying, selling or showing a plugged-in home equipped with technology, ranging from more established systems such as monitored security (93 percent) and home theater or home theater-wired systems (89 percent) to newer technologies like home automation and management systems (54 percent) and energy management systems (51 percent).

A recent survey of 1,793 real estate agents sought to understand agents' experiences with homes outfitted with installed technologies, as well as their perception of the technology.

More than half of real estate agents said they are excited by these homes and believe their clients' enthusiasm for technology mirrors their own. Nearly two-thirds of the agents said their clients are excited to see technologies in homes.

That's no surprise. So, if you want to know how to sell a house and stand out above the competition, wire it up.


Home Theater System

The soft economy is bringing more and more entertainment home as a cost-saving factor. That means current home owners looking to sell a house should consider upgrading their home with at least one home technology system.

"The ideal goal for the consumer electronics industry is to have knowledgeable real estate agents who are excited and open to promoting technology as a selling feature of homes," Daniel said.

Manufacturers and electronic systems contractors (ESCs) should be laying the ground work now to take advantage of the eventual upswing in the real estate market. Educating consumers on the benefits, value and functionalities of installed technologies now will demonstrate that the consumer electronics industry can increase a home's potential to sell.

If you want your home to be highest on buyers' lists when shopping, then when it comes time to sell a house, get those technology juices flowing!

Get a broker! There are brroeks out there that sell your business for you. Search for "Selling Business" on the web and you will see tons. They walk you thru all the legalities of selling the business / real estate / etc. You will drive yourself crazy trying to figure out every little part without them. They get paid by taking 10% of whatever the sale price is. Your friend should just include that amount in his asking price calculations.
