The idea of smart homes surprisingly is much older than many people imagine. It was at the 1939 World’s Fair that the idea was first shown to the public. George Bucher, who was the Westinghouse’s president, wrote an article describing how appliances around a person’s home would in the future be controlled by short waves. He also described things like mood lighting and HEPA filters. Many of the advances in this area in recent years were also seen by Todd Lubar, someone that has been in the home buying and selling industry for over 20 years.
In a report by Patch.com, one of these recent advances in home automation includes doorbells that ring all on their own once their motion sensors determine a person is nearby. Homes that are being built usually now have adjustable lighting in the home that can be controlled by a computer or smartphone. Another big advance is thermostats which are smart enough to now be programmed so that when you get back home from vacation the home knows beforehand so that the air is comfortable upon your return.
As a real estate professional Todd Lubar has seen these advances in the industry first hand. He works in the Baltimore, Maryland area and has seen that the overall trend is making all new homes a smart home. One of the advantages in his market is that the cost of living is quite low compared to other major cities. This makes the newer smart homes very affordable to buy in Baltimore. As an experienced mortgage lender, Todd can find the very best deals for his clients so that they can afford these new and more convenient homes.
Todd Lubar is the president of a firm he founded, TDL Global Ventures, LLC. He is also the senior vice president for another company he established as well, Legendary Investments. He garnered his first experience in the real estate industry after he graduated from college by working at Crestar Mortgage Corporation. While at Crestar he learned all about lending and assessing mortgage risk. He is a graduate of Syracuse University from which he earned his degree in 1995. For more info, visit toddlubar.com.
