Drones in the Home of the Future By Jessica Stoner

“Drones in the Home of the Future” – this weeks episode of The Future of Real Estate radio show with Real Estate Futurist Jessica Stoner.

How fun are Drones!? Now that we’re finally embarking on the future with the exponential growth of drones and drone technology, what can we expect from these little guys, in and around our homes, neighborhoods and cities? As we are very much on the precipice of the drone revolution, it’s difficult to really grasp the uses we can put them towards. Just like we could not guess the sheer number of apps and the many uses we put them towards on our mobile device when the iPhone first came out, similarly we can’t yet get the full picture of how many ways we’ll use these newly opened up 3 dimensions now available to us. Today’s show is going to be an exploration of where we know we are going with Drone technology, where we think and where we hope it will go, and how all it may affect your home and community of the future.

Tiny Homes By Jessica Stoner

Tiny Living is a movement taking place in many developed countries. It involves people making a conscious choice to live in small homes. Some choose this out of necessity, as affordability of housing in many cities and towns is increasingly becoming impractical. Others choose it for long term financial reasons, not wanting to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in their housing over their lives. We also have those drawn towards Tiny Living, due to the simplicity of it. Small homes equals small storage spaces, therefore less possessions.

Many feel overwhelmed with our mainly consumerist society and the many things they own, have to take care of, move when relocating etc. Tiny Living results less “things” in one’s lives which comes with the feeling of Freedom and Relief.

On today’s show, we will be chatting with two guests. A developer, Battistella Developments, building an inner-city micro-condo complex in Calgary, AB, and Tiny Home Alliance Canada,  an organization, that provides resources and assistance to those embarking on the Tiny Living lifestyle.

CoHousing and the Future of Real Estate By Jessica  Stoner

In this episode of the The Future of Real Estate, we are exploring Co-Housing, an intriguing,  growing lifestyle choice.  Many  people are unfamiliar with the concept and are quite intrigued with the idea once they hear about it.

Co-Housing is the concept of purpose built neighbourhoods and communities, with the intention of stronger community ties and a closer connection with neighbours. It is essentially a return to the traditional Village.

We will discuss why people are gravitating towards this unique (for now) lifestyle, how it works, why it is in so much demand, and where you can find co-housing communities.  

We have two co-housing experts that will help us understand more about it, in this thought provoking hour, as they share general information, as well as personal experiences living and developing co-housing communities.

Building the Home of the Future By Jessica Stoner

Yesterday’s show was about Building the Home of the Future. It is actually just the first of a few different shows we will have about Building the Home of the Future, as it is a large and exciting topic and we can only cover a portion at a time. Today’s theme is about In-Factory construction.

We had two guests on the show, each a progressive home builder that constructs their homes In-Factory. We will chat with Barry Maedel of CLiCK Modular Homes out of British Columbia in Canada and Marc A Bovet, with  Bone Structure out of Quebec, Canada.

It is becoming clear that this style of construction has so many benefits, it is hard to understand why this isn’t the norm yet.

Learn more by listening to the recorded interviews with these builders, and visiting the blog post about the show.
