Amazed by the recent changes in the Real Estate Market and wondering what the future looks like?
The Housing Market is one of the fastest developing Markets, and we have seen some really massive changes in the past decade. Knowing these changes can help you make a better decision for your House.
This post uncovers the emerging trends and gives you a sneak peek into the Future of the Housing Market.
Without any further ado, let's explore all the new Trends.
Self-sufficient Community Living
The pandemic has shifted the focus of new buyers to self-sufficient communities solving all their needs in one place.
Buyers are focusing more on townships which include all the amenities, including:
a) Convenience stores
c) Office Spaces
f) And other amenities
This gives residents a safe environment to fulfill their needs. Safety is also a significant aspect, and these townships offer better Security compared to all other residential housing options.
Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
AR and VR have simplified and revolutionized the Home Buying experience and continue to evolve with time.
With the help of AR, buyers can visualize their Homes and interiors before deciding to purchase their Home.
This is one of the fastest-growing trends in the Industry, and the advanced versions of the software even enable the users to select the colours and designs of furniture, decorations and others.
Going forward, these technologies will also allow users to touch and feel the Future of their Homes.
Many Builders also use this to give an E-tour of their properties to prospects before they make the actual visit.
Smart Homes and Internet of Things
I hope you have heard of the concept of the Internet of Things, and if you haven't, I will be introducing you to the future of Housing.
Technology has revolutionized every Business sector globally, and in the Real Estate sector, IoT is so far one of the most significant contributions of Technology.
IoT is defined as a network of physical objects which can be controlled and operated with common software.
With this Technology, you will be able to control and operate your security systems, ACs, Washing Machines, Refrigerators and almost everything else.
Changing the temperature to turning on the AC, to opening doors, everything can be integrated and controlled from your Mobile phone.
Isn't this interesting? Well, things are going to get more interesting in the future.
These technologies are further connected with AI technologies to sense and decide on their own. This will help control the lighting and change it as per the lighting in the Environment, just like your phone does when you go out in the light.
This will also be used to select the proper temperatures as per your convenience and other factors.
