RE/MAX Results – Shannon Lindstrom, Realtor specializes in relocation and she works the entire Minneapolis, St. Paul and surrounding suburbs.

Shannon has personally experienced corporate relocations, so she understands it can be stressful moving to a new city. When an individual and or a family relocate, it is not an easy task. Shannon’s advice is to do your research. The cost of living in every city is different.  Many years ago, Shannon Lindstrom and her family had relocated from Minneapolis, Minnesota to other states for business purposes.  At the time, she had calculated the monthly living expenses were going to increase, since the cost living was higher in that specific city and state. Before she had traveled to that specific location to find a new home; Shannon had researched the local school districts, the real estate market, the property tax rate, transportation costs, etc…

When Shannon & her family relocated back to the Twin Cities, she was well prepared for the move.

How to Turn Your Minneapolis-St Paul Home or Condo into a Smart Home Ideas

Your smart phone is probably your very best friend — the close personal assistant that you can rely on majority of the time. But have you ever thought of having a smart home? There’s new technology being released daily that can improve the functionality and efficiency of your home, and many of these devices have a direct impact on your own quality of life. Beyond that, if your Minneapolis-St Paul condo or home is a smart home, it may possibly increase in value as well.

Here’s a few smart technology devices that can help transform your Minneapolis condo or home into a smart home: 

Smart Security System

These security systems sync with your Wi-Fi connection in order to provide you with pivotal data regarding the safety of your home at any time of day. You can always check in from your own device. Motion detectors, window sensors, carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors and a central hub are just a few of the features that are included on the average smart security system. 

Virtual Assistant

Imagine having your own personal assistant available to you at any time. If you aren’t a celebrity, this likely seems out of the realm of possibility. Enter the virtual assistant. You can speak to this smart hub, ask questions, make requests and control many of the smart devices in your home. 

Smart Thermostat

Forget the programmable thermostat — a smart thermostat learns your habits and adjusts the temperature of your home accordingly. What is really helpful is that you can even control your thermostat remotely from your mobile device.

Smart Doorbell

With this innovative doorbell, you will get stunning high-resolution video of whoever is waiting for you at the front door. It can integrate with other smart technology components in your home in order to provide you with a seamless experience.

Smart Home Lock

These keypad-style locks improve the security of your home significantly, and they store important data that you can retrieve at any time from your mobile device.

Implementing just one of these devices may increase the marketability as well as the value of your home.
