Improving Real Estate
When selling your home in order to move into a tiny home, AI can be a big help in the industry.
In the past, the real estate industry changed immensely just by allowing users to search for homes on the internet. Now, buying and selling homes is a lot more advanced. Virtual tours and assistive devices for ease of access are some aspects of technology that aid in real estate.
AI, however, is smart and therefore capable of unprecedented personalization. AI technology is improving the relevance of recommendations for buyers, making the process of selling a home a lot faster and more successful. This enables those interested in the tiny-house lifestyle to make the switch far more easily.
In terms of selling your tiny home in the future, AI can help in a few ways. One concern with owning a tiny home is the resale potential, but having a smart tiny home can increase its marketability. Just like many other types of upgrades, adding AI technology provides significant value to your home. Tech upgrades are modern and save money for future homeowners, so the real estate perks are abundant.
Wearable technology can provide a lot of help for anyone, regardless of the home they live in. Some pieces of wearable technology help with various aspects of health such as tracking your REM cycle when sleeping, which is a vital aspect of getting a good night’s sleep. It can also track your menstrual cycle, activity through the day, and calories burned. Smart watches can do more, including communicating with your smart home. It can turn off lights, set your thermostat, and even check your security cameras.
Wearable technology is great for those who live in a tiny home in a few ways. For one, tracking your movement can be helpful because of how little you’ll move inside a smaller home. It can remind you to get out and get moving. Another is how easy it is to access your AI features like lights and heat so that your tiny home is as energy efficient as possible.
There are a lot of reasons why people choose to live in a tiny home. Older people may prefer a smaller space that can save them money; some are attracted to the sustainability of having a tiny home; and others may like the accessibility of being in a small space. Plenty of people like all of these aspects. Tiny homes being more energy efficient not only make them more sustainable but also more cost effective. AI technology available for the home helps to make tiny homes even more efficient than they tend to be already.
Tiny homes use fewer resources by requiring less water, electricity, and gas. This is one of the reasons why utility bills are much lower in a tiny home. By implementing AI technology, energy efficiency can be even better. Smart home technology can track energy use to pinpoint sources of energy waste. Smart thermostats can help regulate temperature from anywhere. Virtual assistants can control electronics, lights, and heat with just your voice, making them easily accessible as well.
It can be difficult for first-time tiny-home dwellers to learn how to downsize in order to fit their life into their new residence. In a small space, everything must be smaller. Thankfully, we live in an era where technology is becoming smaller and more multifaceted. AI technology is also great for a tiny home because it’s a piece of technology that is compact and wont take up any valuable space in your home. No matter which type of AI-powered device you decide to use, it won’t be an item that takes up a lot of your much-needed space.
Laptops are the size of a notebook; one Kindle can fit hundreds of books; televisions are often thin and can mounted to a wall; and Echo Dots are smaller than a coffee cup. Technology has made living in a tiny home a lot more manageable than it used to be.
AI technology is helping so many people live their best life. It’s easy to use and makes life a little easier. AI uses algorithms to think on it’s own to help us make decisions based on inferences. Whether that’s to provide accurate housing suggestions, to remind us to get better sleep, or to turn off our lights when we forget, it’s an aspect of technology designed to make things easier. Thankfully, it’s also a compact technology, making it even more attractive for those who live in a tiny home.
