Lennar Sets the Trend in Homes of the Future with Amazon Alexa

by Kelley

Amazon Alexa Lennar Homes

If you haven’t heard already, Lennar has partnered with Amazon to make Alexa standard in every new home. Each Lennar home will include built-in Wi-Fi, smart locks, doorbells, thermostats and lights – all controlled by the voice-activated assistant. This roll out comes shortly after the merge of Lennar and CalAtlantic, now making Lennar the largest homebuilder in the nation and more accessible to millions of homebuyers. Customers currently have the opportunity to experience the Alexa smart home environment with Amazon Experience Centers at select Lennar communities in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC with more markets to come.


While experiencing Alexa in a real home environment, you’ll have the opportunity to discover the benefits of using the digital assistant first hand. Features of Alexa include putting your home on auto-pilot with “good morning” and “good night” routines, ordering household essentials, scheduling home services, notifications for doorbells, entries, exits and more. Included in the flagship Amazon Experience Centers are the latest smart home products for lighting, locks, entertainment, sprinklers, shades, car chargers and so much more.


With Lennar being the first home builder to implement Amazon Alexa as a standard feature, it seems like a safe assumption that we’ll see a rise in demand for Alexa smart home solutions in new home communities across the country.  This may open a larger door for Amazon to dominate the market for digital voice-activated assistants and custom solutions for each market, in house training, education, marketing and installation make this partnership all the more appealing for home builders.


To experience an Amazon Experience Center, tour a Lennar home near you.

New Townhomes For Sale Near Washington, D.C.

by jim

With a new President in office and all eyes on Washington’s every move, many people are considering setting up shop – or home, rather – in the nation’s capital. If you’ve done your research, you probably know that one of the most popular (and readily available) housing options in the Washington Metropolitan area is the townhome. But if the D.C. condos of your choice are taken, you’ll need another option to fall back on. Fortunately, the D.C. Metro region includes not only the district itself, but portions of Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland as well.

Washington DC New Homes

By moving to a townhome near (rather than in) the District of Columbia, you can still reside near the hustle and bustle of the political sphere – without sacrificing your budget or your privacy. One example of such a retreat is an Emerson townhome, located in Howard County, Maryland. Builder Steuart-Kret strategically placed this master planned community between D.C. and Baltimore for those who want a convenient-yet- comfortable Washington lifestyle.          

Although two Emerson townhome models are currently available, (priced at $449,900 and $549,900, respectively), Steuart-Kret can build each townhome to buyer specifications. The homes feature three finished levels of living space, with an option to finish the included basement. Well-planned amenities like a clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and beach volleyball are some of its most exciting features – perfect for socializing after a day of moving and shaking in the federal district. Families can appreciate Emerson’s close proximity to schools and abundant open space.

When gourmet kitchen cabinets, granite countertops in your personal choice of colors, and hardwood floors are what you come home to, the cares of a busy day can be melted away among newfound comforts. To request more information regarding Emerson townhomes near Washington, D.C., take a moment to fill out the builder’s contact form; or, call (240) 568-8985 to arrange an appointment.
