Technology is evolving every day, making our daily life more efficient and enjoyable. Switching on lights, setting thermostats, operating locks, and even your fridge controls are just one voice command or a click away, thanks to “smart upgrades.” Today, installation of automated devices plays a key part in contemporary homes. However, the benefits go beyond convenience and safety. Like any renovation or upgrade, a smart home has the potential to sell faster, with the possibility of a higher price. Keeping all these benefits in mind, investing in smart gadgets may pay off.

5 Smart Upgrades to Improve Your Home and Life

Since it is raining innovations in the home technology market, you might be confused about where to begin. Here’s a quick guide on which smart upgrades to consider adding to your home.

Smart Thermostats

Scorching summer days are on their way, and nothing can serve you better than a smart thermostat device. You can crank up the AC on your way back home from work, conserving energy while you’re away. A smart thermostat will perform admirably through an app to control the system from anywhere you want. Returning from work to a nicely cooled home after the daily hustle-bustle will put a smile on your face every day.

You can also pre-program the device to keep the temperature as comfortable as you prefer. Many of these state-of-the-art thermostats can also sense if somebody is home or away to modify the temperature controls accordingly, saving you money on your monthly utility bills.

Security Cameras

Home security is now safer, more flexible, and less expensive, thanks to innovative home technology. Today, a range of security cameras with various features is available, including motion sensors, smart doorbells, and window monitors. These security cameras offer comprehensive protection to houses of any size and are easy to install.

Modern smart security cameras stay alert round the clock, sending homeowners instant notifications about suspicious activities. Moreover, no hard drive storage is required; these devices record and store images directly on the cloud.

Smart Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role in a property of any size. Whether living in a condo or a detached home, you need an appropriate lighting fixture in every room. But with a transition to smart lights, you can see a massive change in your home’s lighting system. Forget to switch off the light in the kitchen? No need to rush back! One-click “all-off” feature will do the job for you.

These lights also come with a personalization feature, allowing you to adjust the lighting based on your requirements and mood. Moreover, the installation of smart lights is not limited to interiors. You can even use them on patios, gardens, pool decks, or driveways. This cutting-edge technology will adapt to any setting smoothly.

Touch-Free Faucets

If sustainable living is your goal, touchless faucets can help you achieve this goal. As the name suggests, you can open the tap without touching it. Simply place your hands near the faucet spout, and water will begin to flow.

Automatic faucets use sensors to operate, which saves you from needing to open and close the tap for water. You’ll use less water while shaving or brushing your teeth. You’ll also avoid sharing and picking up germs by touching fewer communal surfaces.

Smart Cooking

Make your kitchen life easier and more streamlined by switching to smart cooking appliances. You can smoothly monitor these advanced kitchen gadgets from your mobile device while sitting on your couch. There are many ways to automate your regular kitchen chores, from smart refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers to the sensor trash can and garbage disposal.

Control your coffee maker from your phone or talk to your microwave, all for real! Your meal prep will be less labour intensive once you connect smart kitchen appliances to your home Wi-Fi. As a bonus, these appliances can help you to reduce your energy costs, so enjoy a stress-free and connected cooking lifestyle.

The Bottom Line…

Home automation is here to stay. To manage your life more seamlessly, consider upgrading to a connected home. Installing these simple but smart gadgets will boost the convenience and functionality of your place, while boosting your property value potential.

Is the performance of the Canadian real estate market based on fundamentals or speculation? And what about local markets, such as Peterborough real estate?

Before the COVID-19 public health crisis, many financial experts argued that the housing market was in a bubble, consumed by too much speculation in the major urban centres, from the single-detached homes in downtown Toronto to the condominiums in downtown Vancouver. But while the pre-pandemic housing boom was concentrated in only a few pockets of the Canadian real estate market, the COVID-era increase happened nationwide.

Whether in suburban or rural communities, prices are up significantly, leading to an affordability crisis throughout the nation (although recent data suggests they may be starting to cool). Of course, some markets are more overvalued than others, including Peterborough real estate.

This municipality located north of Toronto has witnessed exceptional gains over the last couple of years, as more people enjoyed the freedom to work remotely, allowing households to relocate to cheaper parts of the province, and different provinces entirely. But is Peterborough really the most overvalued market in Canada?

Moody’s Analytics recently published its fourth-quarter assessment of housing price valuations in Canada. Peterborough was at the top of the list of most overvalued housing markets, coming in at 107.8 per cent. The next city on the list was St. Catharines-Niagara, at 106.9 per cent.

This has first-time homebuyers priced out of the market, especially local buyers. The average annual household income in Peterborough is about $70,000, which means they would be approved for a mortgage of roughly $300,000. But since the average home is on par with the national average, too many prospective homebuyers are still stuck waiting to achieve the dream of home ownership.

Study authors note that housing market investors have taken over the Peterborough landscape, doubling in the last couple of years. Housing experts note that real estate investment trusts (REITs) have contributed to the overvaluation of residential properties. Blind bidding, speculation and low interest rates have been the other factors contributing to Peterborough’s ascent.

But can Peterborough continue posting remarkable gains? The April statistics point to the same types of developments as other parts of Canada, from sliding home sales to climbing home prices.

Peterborough Real Estate – The Most Overvalued Housing Market in the Country

The latest data from the Kawarthas Association of REALTORS® Inc. show that residential property sales plunged at an annualized rate of 34.3 per cent in May, with 222 homes sold. In the first four months of 2022, home sales slumped 18 per cent year-over-year, totalling 975 units.

Historically, sales have been down as well, sitting 7.2 per cent below the five-year average, and 17.7 per cent below the decade average for this time of the year.

Prices are the key in the Peterborough real estate market. Association data highlight that the MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) for a single-family home advanced 27.4 per cent year-over-year to $793,800. The average price of homes sold in May 2022 jumped by nearly 19.8 per cent to $836,843.

“Sales activity was down in May from last year’s near-record level, a trend that we’re seeing play out almost everywhere in Southern Ontario,” said Kate Kidd, President of the Peterborough and the Kawarthas Association of REALTORS® Inc. “New listings are beginning to return to the market, which is lifting overall inventories from their historically low levels. However, it’s going to take more than a few months of stronger supply to have any meaningful impact on the market balance in the long term.”

Indeed, the Peterborough housing market saw the new number of residential listings increase by 8.4 per cent in May, to 425 new units. For the month of May, this is 11 per cent above the five-year average but three per cent below the decade average.

Active residential listings rose 44.3 per cent to 339 units. On a historical level, active listings were 18.8 per cent below the five-year average and more than almost 50 per cent below the 10-year average.

Months of inventory were 1.5 at the end of May, up from 0.7 months from the same time a year ago. This is a commonly used measurement since it takes into account the number of months it would take to exhaust current stockpiles at the present rate of sales activity.
