Buyers are showing more interest in technological home features, with 46% of new and prospective homeowners saying, for example, that they want a security camera on the premises, according to the National Association of Home Builders’ latest annual survey, What Home Buyers Really Want.

Three of the four most-wanted tech features are related to security, with surveillance cameras leading the pack, the survey shows. Buyers also reported high interest in video doorbells and wireless home security systems. But while at least 40% of home buyers say they want these tech features, only about 21% currently have them—“indicating that there is a market growth potential for these items,” the NAHB notes on its blog, Eye on Housing.
