Buying a New Smart Home vs. Resale

Your Home Should Be as Smart as You Are!

Technology can both make our lives easier and save us time. That’s why it just makes sense to purchase a new home that includes the latest in Smart Home technology.

Cavender Homes, a home builder Princeton TX, includes its SmartSuite standard in every new home at its newest community – Morning Ridge in Princeton, TX.

What is SmartSuite?

Cavender Homes is redefining the “smart” in Smart Homes by combining energy efficiency, technology, quality and care into one convenient package: SmartSuite.

Today’s home buyers want the convenience, control and security that technology provides. With Smart Suite Cavender Homes, you can manage many of your home’s systems with one touch – anytime, anywhere. Each floor of your new home includes a Zipatile All in One Smart Home Hub, which acts as an integrated control center for all your home apps and features.

New homes also offer enhanced security. Cavender Homes also include your choice of wireless alarm systems –, SimpliSafe or HomePro.

One of the biggest advantages of the TechSuite from Cavender Homes is that it keeps your home running smoothly and alerts you to needed repairs and system failures.

Retrofitting a Resale Home

It’s true that you can add smart technology to a resale home. But who has the time and how much will it cost?

The cost of installing smart technology can be as high as $10,000. You also have to find someone qualified to do the install and make sure all your devices and systems are working together and communicating with your Smart Home hub. Save time and save money by choosing one of our Smart Homes in Princeton TX, and be assured that everything will be working perfectly from the moment you move in. Imagine the peace of mind you’ll get from being able to monitor and control thermostats, locks, cameras and speakers from your smartphone or other devices.

New Homes are More Energy Efficient

Another benefit of choosing a new home built by Cavender Homes is the outstanding energy efficiency every home includes. Cavender Homes refers to its energy saving features as EcoSuite, a part of the SmartSuite package that comes standard in the company’s new construction homes.

Technology evolves quickly, so even homes built 10 or 20 years ago can’t compete with new homes when it comes to saving energy and money. Energy Star Partners reports that newer homes use approximately 30% less energy for heat, and that air conditioning systems are 50% more efficient now than just a few decades ago. Energy code regulations and improvements in windows and insulation are primarily responsible for energy efficiency advantages.

Cavender Homes’ sustainable, energy efficient homes in Princeton, TX include all these features as standard:

  • A high efficiency Trane® HVAC unit that meets or exceeds Energy Star® standards
  • Rheem® tankless water heaters for on‑demand, consistent, endless hot water
  • ST8I‑Wifi smart irrigation with an indoor WiFi timer/controller and 8‑Zone Rainbird® irrigation system

Our homes also come with a WiFi‑enabled Samsung Energy Star® appliance package that seamlessly integrates with your new home’s Smart Hub. Homebuyers who want additional energy efficiency can choose upgrades such as a Tesla solar roof or Powerwall battery.

Save Money from the Moment You Get Your Keys

When you choose a new energy efficient Smart Home from Cavender Homes, you’ll save money on utilities from Day 1, and savings continue throughout the life of your home. When you consider the costs of buying a resale home and replacing appliances, windows, AC unit, water heater, and more – there’s really no comparison. Smart Homes Princeton TX are simply the better choice.
