Tech workers are flocking to Austin, spurred by the relocation of their company offices to the Lone Star State’s capitol. Most of those workers are millennials and what is at the top of their new home shopping list? Smart home technology.
Austin ranked No. 7 in the nation on the 2021 Scoring Tech Talent report from commercial real estate services company CBRE. Tech companies are so ubiquitous that “Silicon Hills” is now in direct competition with Silicon Valley. According to the report, Austin has the most concentrated millennial tech workforce.
Millennials want different things from their parents, according to a recent report from Nasdaq.com. The two things they are most looking for in a home is technology and sustainability. They want video doorbells, keyless entry, smart lights, smart thermostats and security systems. They want to control it all via their smart phones. They want those homes to be in the suburbs.
Maybe that’s why Bryson attracts so many buyers. Our builders include smart home technology in every home they build.
Lennar was the first builder in the nation to include a home automation package as standard. Three years ago, they unveiled their first WiFi-powered smart home in — where else? — Austin. The Connected Home by Lennar® features a Ring alarm security kit, video doorbell, smart lock, eero Pro 6 Mesh wifi system and LiftMaster® myQ® Smart Garage Control. The best part is that there is connectivity in every room in the house, so you won’t have to worry about your Zoom call dropping.
Perry Homes has partnered with Nest to bring new homeowners high quality thermostats and video doorbells. You also get Kwikset’s newest keypad electronic deadbolt, SmartCode 888 as well as Leviton light switches and a Genie® garage door opener.
Chesmar Homes and Tri Pointe Homes include similar items as standard features. Perry also offers options that allow you to automatically adjust your irrigation system and protect your appliances from electricity surges.
It’s what every tech worker dreams of and it’s all in beautiful Bryson, the 2020 Master-planned Community of the Year, according to the Austin Business Journal and Texas Association of Builders. Not only are there fantastic amenities, it’s easy to get to work. There is a Metrorail station located just two minutes from Bryson. How’s that for being eco-friendly?
If you’re looking for a new home, Bryson is the smart move.
