Honing Your Home Tech Merchandising Strategy
Historically, home technology has been an afterthought for builders. Packages are often thrown together mid-cycle, and the forethought required to maximize tech sales, to really leverage tech for sales lift and truly satisfy the homebuyer, is missing. A home tech merchandising plan fixes that. It gets builders thinking strategically in the unfamiliar turf of tech, gets that work done in time to leverage it in community marketing and ensures tech will be fully integrated in the options selection and purchasing processes. Developing a formal home tech merchandising plan is key to getting tech right for homebuyers and homebuilders! This session will share home tech merchandising process tools and insights from leading builders on how they currently generate their product assortments and packaging and how they’ll be improving their processes in the future.

The Quantum New Home!
We all know how poorly new homes perform in the sales battle vs. used homes. More than half of homebuyers begin their search open to purchase of a new home, but only one in five make that choice. Unlike automobile manufacturers, builders are not incorporating technology aggressively enough to make the new home a quantum, and order of magnitude, better and cooler than used homes. In this session we’ll cover the four techniques builders can use to achieve the quantum difference: 1) by leverage home tech to make new homes smarter, safer, healthier and more entertaining 2) by leveraging tech to make homes more efficient 3) by leveraging tech to make the new home asset easier and more cost-effective to maintain and 4) by leveraging tech to quickly deliver more affordable new homes and narrow the price difference with used homes. What if we got 20% or 25% of the homebuyer market instead of 10%-12%. Big difference for your bottom line and enterprise value!
