Smart Home Devices are working well for homeowners..... and they're everywhere.....could they work for buyers, too?

Original content by Scott Godzyk NH License 033394

If you do not know, ALEXA is the Smart Speaker from Amazon. Real Estate Closings can be emotional.  The sellers of my new Manchester NH area home Listing have the ECHO 2 Smart Speaker

 

SO my story starts when i set up the first 5 showings. I set them all in a row with 25 minute intervals. The first buyer was early. But so was I and ready for them to come in. As they toured the home, he noticed the blue light on top of the speaker lights up when anyone talks. 

 

The next thing I know, he is talking to it. More shocking, she was talking back. He asked it "why are the sellers selling?" I though it was inappropriate and luckily Alexa did not know. He said he was joking, but what if he wasn't? What if Alexa answered? I hope this is not a sign of the times with Smart homes.

 

 

In the end, three of the five buyers made offers and the home went under contract in a day. No Alexa did not stay with the home. But the Buyer did have their own. Yes it was the guy who who asked..... The seller got a laugh and are very happy i sold the home at full price. That Perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.

Alexa lives at our house too...but even her weather forecasts are a little "foggy."

Hi Barbara Todaro - Scott Godzyk always has interesting stories to tell. I have never been able to get Siri to help me on my phone so I won't even think of buying Alexa. I don't like the fact that it is always monitoring. Smart TVs are an issue as well!
