Luckily, there are several luxurious gifts that will help make the home buying process easier, help them acclimate to their new home, or give them a lasting memory that they'll cherish. If you're looking for the perfect gift for a prospective home buyer in your life, keep reading to learn a few of the best options.
Samsung Galaxy Note8
If your gift recipients are still in the process of searching for the perfect home, there's no better gift than the Samsung Galaxy Note8. Searching for the perfect home is a time-consuming process. The prospective home buyers are likely attending tons of open houses, touring properties and more. Keeping each of the properties straight, and remembering the features that they liked in each, can be a challenge when they're on the go.
Toting around a laptop or tablet is a challenge when you're constantly traveling from home to home. With the Samsung Galaxy Note8, they'll get the power of a tablet in a small, handheld device that fits right in their pocket or purse. They can use it to take photos of each home, jot down quick notes with the stylus about any features they like, and even go online to search for other home listings while they're still out and about. Add in the ability to access features like Google Maps, email, and more, and the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is the ultimate on-the-go-device for anyone searching for a new home.
Nest Learning Thermostat
For the tech-savvy, environmentally conscious home buyer in your life, there's no better gift than the Nest Learning Thermostat. While they'll be able to use this device in their new home, they'll actually be able to start using it in their current one. That's because the Nest Learning Thermostat can easily be installed in place of a current thermostat, and starts working in less than 30 minutes.
The Nest Learning Thermostat learns your daily schedule and patterns and then adjusts your home's temperature accordingly. It learns when you go to sleep so that it can lower the heat or raise the air conditioning to conserve energy. It also learns when you typically get up, so that it can start warming or cooling your home to a comfortable temperature.
When you're away at work, it sets itself to eco temperature, to conserve energy while no one is at home. The Nest Learning Thermostat syncs with your smartphone so that you can change the temperature right from your device whenever your schedule changes or you want to adjust the temperature. You can also use your cell to track how much energy you've saved while using this device.
A Commissioned Portrait of the Old Home, or the New One
A great way to commemorate a home buyer's big move is by commissioning a portrait of their old home. This can be a great sentimental gift that allows them to remember their old house and all of its memories while enjoying their move to a new one. If this is a home buyer's first home, commemorate the event by commissioning a portrait of the new property instead. The portrait will no doubt become a treasured piece that they'll be able to take with them if they ever move again.
Choosing the perfect gift for prospective home buyers can be tough. But with a little thought and innovation, you can find a luxurious gift that they'll not only use, but also enjoy for years to come.
