What do you envision when you think of the next generation of renters? The upcoming wave of renters, adults under 40, have needs and wants that differ greatly from older generations. To stay competitive as a property owner in Jacksonville, it’s important to consider what young adults look for in a rental home and make the necessary upgrades.

Smart Technologies for Rental Properties

As handheld smart technologies proliferate, smart homes are becoming more common. A lot of young renters have experienced smart technologies, such as smart thermostats and lighting, in their family homes. Using these technologies, one can adjust a thermostat or control lights with just a few clicks.

Far from being just fancy extras, smart technologies can greatly improve a rental home’s performance and attract quality, long-term residents. Let’s take a closer look at smart thermostats and lighting and the benefits they offer for rental property owners.

Benefits of Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are advanced programmable devices that learn your behavior and adjust temperature settings accordingly. These thermostats track energy consumption in real time, make automatic adjustments when the home is empty, and allow for remote control of the home’s climate.

Although the upfront cost of smart thermostats is higher than traditional ones, they can generate significant energy savings, potentially saving residents hundreds of dollars per year. Moreover, smart thermostats provide a consistently customized and comfortable home climate. Although they come with a higher initial cost, smart thermostats are designed to pay for themselves through energy savings and improved efficiency in a relatively short time.

Reason to Consider Smart Lighting

Smart lighting systems, much like smart thermostats, are built to reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency. They feature high-efficiency light fixtures and automated controls that can self-adjust according to the number of occupants and natural light.

Smart lighting can be programmed, managed via a mobile app, and customized to optimize energy use and improve home security. Smart lighting stands out as an accessible and cost-effective smart home technology, making it an ideal starting point for those wanting to integrate innovation into their living spaces.
