Smart products are already in homes, such as WASHERS, DRYERS, REFRIGERAORS and DISHWASHERS. Owners can monitor the temp on the fridge, get an alert when dishes are washed and receive updates on how long the laundry will take. Smart WINDOWS & DOORS have wireless sensors that let owners know through their home-security systems when they are opened or unlocked. Some WINDOWS can close themselves when they detect rain. HOME SECURITY systems send a message to your smart phones, if anything unusual. LIGHT BULBS provide a wide range of light ambience that can be adjusted through an app. WELL, ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?
Most smart tech products require an Internet connection to send Wi-Fi signals to remote devices. Users can manipulate the device in person or use their phone, tablet or computer to turn things on or off or adjust settings. These apps may also track other data about your technology, such as frequency and history of use and potential energy savings. A 1940s bungalow can be upgraded by installing smart products on any age or type of property. Just make sure your products are compatible with your home. Most product websites will offer information on compatibility issues. Well, here we are with the JETSONS!!
In 1910 Tyler’s population was 10,400 and now it is 100,223 and Smith County’s was 50,000 and now 216,080. This is important as some companies will not consider doing business in a city till it is over 100,000. The Federal Government also considers population in certain programs. In 2010 29% of the population have a bachelor’s degree or higher and 16% have no high school diploma. The median age is 33 and 24% are under 18 years with 14% over 65 years of age. 47% are male and 53% are female. Still, according to Heather Nick, planning director for the City of Tyler, a population of more then 100,000 sounds different that a number under 100,000.

238 years + 2 days, a new nation was conceived, different from all others – a nation that could and would capture the imagination of the world for centuries to come … A NATION THAT CAPTURED A DREAM. Part of that dream is the right to own property, but today it is a challenge with a less than robust economy, lending restrictions and growing concerns in regards to both regulatory and legislative reform. This is where REALTORS come in, as most are educated to go through these hurdles and get you settled in a home, farm, ranch, land or apartment. A REALTOR may not serve in uniform, but they serve America and her people in a profound way in assisting in achieving home ownership. REALTORS feel a sense of duty in promoting and protecting that which our fore fathers 238 years ago envisioned as one of the key elements of this new nation and KEEPING THE DREAM ALIVE!!
