Technology Savvy New Home BuildersNew home builders - Home technology

When it comes to technical expertise, I'll risk the pun in saying that... Not All Home Builders are Built the Same

Many builders behind the times...
Many new home builders actively try NOT to discuss the latest technology innovations and options with prospective home buyers for any number of reasons.  They may be unwilling to invest the time or money necessary to learn about new building materials and construction techniques.  They may not stay in-touch with lifestyle trends.  Some homebuilders are simply averse to change or don't like technology.  Builders mask these faults by simply ignoring home technology in the home building/buying process.

These technology-averse home builders tend to not only lag behind when it comes to things like home theaters, structured wiring and home automation, they are also slow (if ever) in adopting innovations in building materials and construction processes and in using technology to better communicate and build relationships with home buyers.

Without even being aware, home buyers may be denied home technology options that could dramatically enhance their lifestyle.  They may even end up with homes built to sub-par standards due to lack of new building materials and construction techniques.

The tech savvy home builder...
Good home builders realize that home technology can be used to dramatically improve the home owner's lifestyle.  From the latest in building materials to energy savings/environmental construction to home theaters and home automation, tech savvy home builders embrace new trends in building processes and home technology.

The tech savvy builder works with the homebuyer to determine their lifestyle needs and uses technologies to enhance that lifestyle.  They don't simply offer "option packages A, B and C... take it or leave it".  They ask questions like "Does your family often listen to music?", "What kind of home theater or media room do you envision?", "Are you aware of the benefits of new trends such as central vacuum systems and radiant floor heating?".  They use this consultative process to tailor your home to fit you and your family's lifestyle.

A good home builder knows when his expertise is stretched.  Home technology, especially in the area of electronics, changes on a rapid basis.  What was innovative or even the standard a year ago may not be so today.  Many builders create relationships with home technology integrators, installers and designers and rely on these companies to stay current on new trends. Part of being a tech-savvy builder is creating these trusted relationships and knowing when to bring in additional experts.
