Homes are changing and so is senior living. Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program features the innovative Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design, providing homebuyers with a home ready for the future of technology. In this recent Senior Housing News article, Jack Silverstein explains why senior living providers are looking to Lennar when it comes to smart homes. 

Outcomes and data are still trickling out, however. In the meantime, senior living operators who want to learn more about smart homes should look to Lennar Corporation. The Miami-based company does not build senior housing and is exclusively an all-ages, market-rate builder. But it is relevant to senior living because it is the largest homebuilder in the United States, and in 2017 it made history with the first full home environment to receive Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance, a nonprofit that serves as the stamp of approval of smart devices in the U.S.

Working with Amazon, Lennar now plans to go fully Wi-Fi Certified with its entire portfolio, approximately 250,000 home sites and 1,300 residential communities in 49 markets across 21 states.

Senior living operators can learn these three lessons from Lennar, which they can apply to their own pursuit of smart homes.

Lesson 1: Smart homes in senior living benefit today’s resident, but they are for tomorrow’s

The notion that today’s seniors are uninterested in smart technology is as antiquated as rotary phones.

Despite a lag behind younger generations, today’s senior is growing increasingly comfortable with this technology. Pew Research Center shows that the percentage of people 65 and up who own smartphones quadrupled from 2011 to 2016, while the percentage of 65+ adults using the internet grew five times from 2000 to 2016.

The senior living Alexa pilot programs and other use cases popping up nationwide are proving successful. In November of 2017, for instance, Kisco announced that 79% of residents at The Cardinal were engaging with the K4Connect dashboard.

But the key reason that senior living operators are pivoting to smart homes today is for the competitive advantage it gives them with tomorrow’s resident. These future seniors will be accustomed to smart homes by the time they reach senior living. The 2018 Global Smart Home Forecast from Strategy Analytics lists the entire smart home market at $93 billion in 2018, with potential growth to $143 billion in 2023.

By that time, 14% of houses worldwide are expected to have at least one type of smart system. The cycle will continue: the more prevalent the tech, the more demand from those who don’t yet have it. Already today, nearly 80% of home buyers express an interest in smart technology.

“Ostensibly, what we are doing is future-proofing the home — that is what’s important,” says Danielle Tocco, vice president of communications for Lennar Corporation.

Lesson 2: Ensure total Wi-Fi connectivity with no dead spots

Lennar achieved Wi-Fi certification with two simple steps, either or both of which senior living operators can accomplish. First, they partnered with Ruckus Networks, (now part of Arris Group of Sunnyvale, California) to set Wi-Fi access points with no dead spots. They confirmed the absence of dead spots by creating a heat map of the house to test connectivity at every point.

This total connectivity gives Lennar’s homes the technological infrastructure that both enables all of today’s smart technology, and facilitates tomorrow’s home smart tech devices, even ones not yet known.

Lennar’s Executive Chairman, Stuart Miller, joined CNBC’s Diana Olick to discuss how declining interest rates are causing an increase in consumers confidence and luring homebuyers back into the market. Watch the clip below as Miller discusses what to expect for Lennar and the housing industry in 2019. 

After a tough fourth quarter, Lennar’s chairman, Stuart Miller, said December’s interest rate drop spurred a surge in customer traffic through its model homes.

As one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, with a national footprint, what’s good for Lennar could bode well for the broader market for new homes in 2019.

“The very quick moves in interest rates that we saw from the Fed that translated into the mortgage rates, it really created an element of sticker shock,” said Miller in an interview on CNBC’s “The Exchange.” “With interest rates tapering back, we think we’re seeing an elevation in consumer confidence and we think we’ll see the customer come back to the market.”

Lennar reported disappointing sales in the company’s fourth quarter, ended Nov. 30. Profits beat expectations but revenue, deliveries and new orders came in slightly lower.

The housing market in general has been hit hard by affordability issues. Home prices ran up sharply in the past three years, far faster than income growth. Then mortgage rates moved higher, exacerbating the problem. While rates have pulled back in the last month, they are still half a percentage point higher than they were a year ago.

Miller said he does not expect to see home prices drop for new construction, given strong fundamentals like low unemployment and wage growth. Higher costs for land and labor also make it difficult for builders to lower prices.

“I think that we’re trying to find equilibrium right now. The customer is coming out to the market. With interest rates tapering back, I don’t think you’re going to see a big reduction in purchase price,” said Miller. But builders are increasingly using incentives like granite countertops and higher-end finishing in new home sales, he added.

January 2019 – A new year presents the opportunity for a fresh new start, so make this your year to make your new home dreams come true. There are so many reasons to choose a new home over a resale home, so in the spirit of the season let’s countdown a few key factors in why new isn’t only the better choice – it’s the smarter one.

#9: A floorplan that works for you.

When shopping for a resale home, very often you’ll find that the home you liked best may not offer the specs or bedrooms you and your family need. Lennar’s new home communities offer a variety of floorplans designed for the way people live today. Open-concept living areas, gourmet kitchens with plenty of counter and storage space, massive walk-in closets in the master bedrooms and extra bathrooms for busy mornings — you want your home to fit your family, not the other way around. 

#8: It’s all new and it’s all under warranty!

A used home likely has tired products and parts that may require replacement sooner than you’d like. Your new home is built entirely of brand-new materials which all come with a warranty. What’s even better? Lennar will show you how to maintain the integrity of your home through simple maintenance for years to come. So, you won’t end up surprised or having to replace important pieces long before you expected to.

 #7: Everything’s Included® and everything’s connected.

With Lennar, you can enjoy added style, technology and value at no additional cost through upgrades and features that come included as standard. Quartz or granite countertops, upgraded appliances, integrated home automation products and more come in your brand-new home without you having to pay extra. Even better, our Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Designs provide strong consistent coverage in every room, so everyone can enjoy a better connection with no dead spots.

#6: Energy and cost savings.

Today’s new homes are far more energy-efficient than homes built even five years ago, so when it comes to a home that’s 10 or 20 years old, there really is no contest. Lennar homes features items such as programmable thermostats, double-paned low E windows, ENERGY STAR® certified appliances, low flow toilets and sinks, tankless water heaters and more, which work to create lower energy use and utility costs each month.

#5: Comfort and indoor air quality.

Today’s new homes meet stronger energy standards and health codes than what were put in place in the past. They combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. The result is year-round, draft-free comfort and higher indoor air quality.

#4: An amazing lifestyle.

Many new homes are built in masterplanned communities that provide incredible amenities such as clubhouses, fitness centers, pools, spas, parks, sports courts and more. We also strive to build walkable communities set in desirable locations with great school districts and near shopping centers, major employers, recreation, entertainment and more. All of which make your life easier and more balanced.

#3: Advanced technology and design.

With a resale home, you might find yourself replacing single-pane windows with high performance ones or adding insulation. But it can become very expensive to replace dated appliances, cabinets, countertops, water heaters and all the other items that come standard in a new Lennar home.

#2: Low maintenance.

Just like a new car is computer-designed and engineered, so our today’s new homes. Open floorplans with high ceilings reflect the way people live today, reducing any need to remodel down the road. New homes are made of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance, and the latest building systems and components are designed and engineered to work together and better than ever before.

#1: That new home feel.

Chances are that when you buy a resale home, you’re going to be compromising on something. Maybe you love the home but ideally need an extra bedroom? Those dated cabinets are going to need to be redone? Regardless of what you have had to compromise on in the past, a new Lennar Everything’s Included® home means you don’t have to anymore. Enjoy a home where the story starts with you. Start your search today at!

Ah, those famous New Year’s resolutions: easily made, but not so easily kept! We had every intention of exercising zealously, eating healthier, prioritizing family together time, and more—but as 2019 ticks on, our once-ironclad resolve loses its oomph. We need a buddy to keep us accountable, somebody who can bring excitement to our resolutions, and help make them happen… That somebody, like a magical Mary Poppins wired into Lennar’s new homes, is none other than the helpful and efficient Alexa!

Residents of Cascata at MiraLago, The Edge on 15th, and Magnolia Trails—three beautiful Lennar communities in Broward County—know first-hand the benefits of having Smart Home Technology with activation and support by Amazon and voice control by Alexa. Daily life is enhanced and simplified by technology that can do everything from providing a delicious recipe to suggesting games the whole family will enjoy.

Going back to New Year’s resolutions, was exercising on your list? Alexa can provide quick 7-minute workouts and even remind you when its time to pull out your exercise mat! At Cascata at MiraLago in Parkland, a state-of-the-art gym, aerobic center, lap pool, and sauna will nicely complement your routine with Alexa.

Alexa can also schedule regular family outings to your sparkling pool—which all three of Lennar’s Broward communities feature. Splashing around with the kids and playing Marco Polo may not feel like the arduous work many associate with exercise, but you’re getting your heart pumping and doing your body good, while also spending quality family time—possibly another of your New Year’s resolutions! Speaking of combining family togetherness with exercise, at Magnolia Trails, a lovely townhome community in Davie, residents may wish to ask Alexa for a list of nearby ranches where they can discover horseback riding. This wonderful activity may just become your family’s new favorite!

If eating healthier is on your radar for 2019, Alexa is a great resource and ally. She can help you find top-rated recipes that give you all the yummy taste, minus the bad stuff. For example, she can teach you how to thicken a sauce with cooked, blended vegetables, instead of a traditional high-fat roux. Or make irresistibly moist and tender brownies with beets. The children will never suspect that you’re sneaking them veggies—and Alexa is good at keeping secrets!

Not only will Alexa make cooking extra fun, you’re sure to enjoy spending time in your handsome, well equipped kitchen. Featuring quality stainless steel appliances, ample countertops—and often islands—as well as attractive cabinets, Lennar kitchens invariably inspire home chefs. Even residents of the Edge on 15th, an urban Fort Lauderdale community, will prefer to show off their culinary talents at home, rather than go to one of the area’s many world-class restaurants!

Another frequent resolution involves finding ways to increase productivity. Multi-tasking is a snap with Alexa at your side! She’ll schedule meetings and appointments for you, check credit card balances, bring you breaking news, or read an audiobook as you prep for dinner and straighten your home. On the other end of the spectrum, should you be committed to finding ways to relax, Alexa can give you tips for meditating, and play soothing sounds, as well as podcasts conducive to feeling centered and peaceful.

Whatever your resolutions for 2019, we’re pretty sure that Alexa can help you succeed. In just a few short months you’ll be reaping the rewards of a smart lifestyle, and probably wondering how you ever managed without this advanced home technology! From every point of view, life is simply better in a Lennar home. Thank you, Alexa!
