Using Google Home to sell your house: Integrating technology into your home is a growing trend.

Impressing new home buyers

Creating a welcoming space for prospective buyers is the most importance aspect of showcasing your home during open days, and voice-controlled assistants can augment their experience. Imagine showing off the heat-repellent blinds, the dimmed lights and the heating and cooling system all via voice-control. Your home buyers would see all the benefits of the home curtesy of the 21st century, without you fumbling with controls.

Show off your homes calmest corners

Imagine showing a potential buyer through your home on a hot day. You describe the calming effect of the master bedroom, and start to walk toward the room. As you enter the bedroom, you say a gentle ‘Ok Google, play relaxing music,’ and your favourite soothing tones start to play. As you describe the soothing feel of the room, you also ask Google to dim the lights and turn on the air conditioning to create a blissful experience for buyers.

Showcase your houses entertaining abilities

Looking around an empty home and imagining is part of the fun of purchasing a home, and Google Home and Amazon Alexa can help. While showing potential buyers around your home, don’t just tell them, SHOW them exactly how fantastic the space can be for entertaining.

As you wander towards the living room, ask your virtual assistant to play your party mix, and turn down the lights. You’ll love showcasing the energy of the room without fumbling with speakers and rummaging for the lights. If you have nosy neighbours, show off the block-out blinds by asking your virtual assistant to close the blinds. Potential buyers will be blown away by the cohesive experience the technology can create!

Ok, this is probably a bit much, but your get the gist.
