How awesome would it be to get a new house and have a bunch of smart home products installed in it for free?
It’s possible with a home-buying program called TurnKey, which is now available in metro areas. The program matches you with a top agent, who in turn helps you find your dream home, which will be furnished with smart products from Amazon, such as the Amazon Echo and Amazon Show.
Amazon is partnering with real estate service provider Realogy to fulfill the TurnKey program’s benefits for homebuyers. Realogy supports independent sales agents with technology, marketing and other programs to help them build their businesses — so the Amazon partnership makes sense.
Who wouldn’t want to move into a new home loaded with smart tech?
Amazon will reward the homebuyer with Alexa-enabled devices and installation. Homebuyers are also eligible for an Amazon Move coupon good for 10% off of up to $200 worth of eligible products sold on Amazon.
How big your smart tech package is will depend on how much you pay for the house. If it cost $150,000 to $399,000, you could get the $1,000 package.
This package comes with an Echo Dot, Echo Show, a Ring Doorbell II and more than $450 credit toward Amazon Home Services (cleaning, furniture assembly and other awesomely helpful stuff), as well as the Amazon Move coupon.
The higher the cost of the home, the more products a homebuyer will get with the TurnKey program perks. A $700,000 home or higher will get the buyer $5,000 in Amazon products and services!
The professionals who will install your new home’s smart technology are vetted by Amazon, too.
Imagine doing everything around your home hands-free. It sounds amazing!
“Alexa, lower the temperature to 70 degrees.”
“Alexa, turn off the lights in the living room.”
All of the Amazon products included in the TurnKey package are backed by the company’s Happiness Guarantee.
TurnKey sounds like a win-win for everyone! Real estate agents get help from Realogy, and buyers get their expertise plus the necessary Amazon products.
Happy home buying!
