Many builders are incorporating houses with smart home technologies, as the majority of buyers say they're willing to pay extra to have it, according to research from John Burns Real Estate Consulting.

Of 23,000 people surveyed in the consulting firm's research, 60% said they'd pay more for a home if it was outfitted with a smart thermostat. Even more people said they'd pay for a home with phone-accessible security cameras and smart locks. 

Of the 300 home builders surveyed, more than half say they're incorporating smart home technology into their new construction.

There are lots of upgrades you can add to your home, but there’s no need to embark on a complete remodel in order to increase its value. Here are a few simple affordable projects that will be well worth it in the end.

#1 Ceiling Fans And Light Fixtures

According to a new ATTOM Data Solutions real estate study, May is the best month to sell your home.

ATTOM collected data on 14.7 million homes sold across the country from 2011-2017 to see which months had the highest return for sellers. May had the most premiums above market value more than any other time of the year nationwide. 

However, the best month did vary by market; most of the eastern Florida is actually better for sellers in June while Miami, known for its warm weather, sells greatest in January. 

The lucky months in St. Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach and Broward Counties are May and June, which are coming up quick. If the improving economy has had you thinking about listing your home, now is the perfect time to do it. Waterfront

Certain styles can make your home look older even if it's a new house. Some quick and easy updating before putting you home on the market will make a big difference to buyers. Here are the styles that make your listing look dated according to the National Association of Realtors:

1. Bright and bold paint colors on walls. Turquoise might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but if you want to add color to the home it's better to do with pieces like pillows and vases. Neutral and warm colors are safe and always in style. 

2. Animal prints. At some time, someone somewhere came up with the idea that leopard and tiger prints on chairs and couches made them look more expensive. It's actually a big turn-off to home buyers if you're selling

In October 2017, Americans purchased homes at the fastest pace in a decade- a 6.2% monthly increase nationally, and a 16% monthly increase in Palm Beach County, according to the Florida Realtors Association.

Why are people buying?

One contributing factor could be the result of the national interest rate on 30-year fixed mortgages continuing to drop. Last week mortgage rates dropped from 3.95% to 3.92% in comparison to 4.03% in 2016 (National Association of Realtors). Historically, lower mortgage rates have helped drive home sales and those looking to refinance the market.

A healthy job market and low national unemployment rate of 4.1% could also be driving people to purchase homes. Palm Beach County currently has a strong economy with areas
