I tracked down Leonard Baron, a.k.a. “Professor Baron,” a San Diego resident who teaches classes on investing in real estate. Unfortunately, he couldn’t give me any good news about being a gadget geek who wants to install a keyless front door, smart thermostat or any number of super-cool high-tech home innovations. It won’t help the resale of my home. Then again, you (mostly) won’t recoup your investment in any remodeling done on your home. Bummer!
