Smart Home Features 2020

With the rise in popularity of virtual assistants and smart home hubs, it's a wise decision to make sure your home has up-to-date technology before putting it on the market. Smart features are one way to help your home stand out from other Cedar Rapids homes for sale. Buyers of all ages are searching for properties that make it easy to add convenience, privacy, and security to their lives via home automation. Here are a few smart features that will appeal to today's homebuyers.

  1. Smart Lights
    Smart lights are one of the easiest smart features to add to your home. All you have to do is swap your existing lightbulbs for smart bulbs. Then, you can configure them using a compatible home automation app. Not only do smart lights make it simple for you to turn your lights on and off from another room, but they also help you save money. You can program your lights to cut on and off at designated times so that you aren't needlessly wasting electricity. Many smart lights boast multiple colors and brightness options so that you can change the ambiance in the room with a few clicks.

National Iowa Day

On February 8, the Hawkeye State is recognized on National Iowa Day. It's the perfect time to celebrate what makes our state such a special place to live.

Our REALTORS® are familiar with the state of Iowa's many fantastic attributes and share the following 7 facts about our state:

  1. The Scenery is Much More Than Cornfields 
    If you're from another part of the country, images like those in "Field of Dreams" may have given you the impression that Iowa is covered in cornfields. The fields are there, but Iowa's beautiful, varied landscape has much more to offer. You'll find rivers, lakes, woods, rolling hills, and prairies. Rural areas, as well as cities, are found across the state.

  2. We Have a Football Rivalry That Matters 
    Iowa vs. Iowa State is an intense rivalry, so if you're moving to the state, you should probably go ahead and pick a side. Someone is bound to ask you whether you're a Cyclone or a Hawkeye, so be prepared to hear why each team is better than the other and make your choice.

  3. We Still Love "Field of Dreams" 
    The Field of Dreams still draws plenty of visitors, and Major League Baseball is even constructing a new ballpark at the site. The New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox will play there on Aug. 13, 2020, so the farm will gain new visitors and fans.
