Each new year brings fresh trends in home building and design, from paint colors to technology, lot sizes, and amenities. Here are three of the biggest trends we'll be watching for 2020 in Metro Atlanta:


It’s been happening for years, and the trend continues to grow. Smart home technology is coming to more new homes in 2020. Features like keypad locks on entry doors and video doorbell systems will be standard items on more new homes in the coming year. You can already buy the technology to control your fridge temperature, turn on your living room lights, and record your favorite show all from your smart phone. It won’t be long before similar items are offered with your home purchase.

Today is bright and sunny in metro Atlanta, but cold weather is just around the corner. More than a few of us at Peggy Slappey Properties are hoping for a snowy Christmas!
