Technology Plays Big Role With New Home Buyers

Given that more Canadians own their homes today that at any other time in our nation’s history, it’s fair to say that home ownership has become one of our country’s primary cultural values. 
 
Chances are you’ve spent the occasional Sunday mesmerized by a real estate program or two, and even if you don’t keep up on the latest home trends, you’re probably familiar with the importance of location, kitchens, and bathrooms to property values.

Recognizing that many young homebuyers have never known a world without technology – personal computers and the Internet have been mainstays since they were children – they expect that technology should be fully integrated not only into the home buying process but also into their homes.
