Increasing Your Homes Value With A Landscape Lighting System

Will adding an Outdoor Lighting System increase my home's value?


Having a Landscape Lighting system will distinguish your house from the rest. Outdoor lighting creates curb appeal that draws people in while increasing safety & security for your home. 


Curb Appeal

Why is Curb appeal important?

 Outdoor illumination captures the architectural beauty and landscape features of your home.

One of the major benefits of Landscape Lighting during the selling process is the curb appeal it sends to potential buyers.

The saying, "you eat with your eyes first", also applies to selling your home. 

Picture this, you hold an open house, potential buyers arrive just before the sun goes down, they are greeted with a dramatic and captivating view of their "new home".

With the right amount of light,  you can create a silhouette of your Landscape features such as walkways, shrubbery, or statues. 


Stand Out From The Rest

If you live in a neighborhood where landscape lighting is the norm, but you don't have it, it can have a negative impact on prospecting clients because it gives the illusion that the house is subpar compared to the other homes for sale in the area.

When selling your home, you want to stand out from the rest. Even if your neighbors have Outdoor Lighting the chances of them having a custom Landscape Lighting system isn't likely. Most homeowners opt for the cheaper DIY route. Which often includes solar or battery-operated fixtures. These are usually plastic and have very low light output. You can easily out-do the rest of the neighborhood when you make the decision to go with a professional Landscape Lighting company. 



Not just for show

Exterior Outdoor Lighting serves other purposes than just enhancing the beauty of your home. 

Purposeful fixture placement along pathways and stairs, allows you and guests to navigate around your property safely at night. 

I think we can all agree that we would prefer a home that increases the safety & security of both our home and loved ones..

Having a well-lit Landscape Lighting system is a huge deterrent for intruders. When you illuminate the natural architecture of your home it gives the illusion, "the lights are on, someone must be home". On top of that, having Landscape Lights around the exterior of the home helps remove pockets of dark spaces that intruders generally hide-out. 

By offering a full equipped Landscape Lighting system, you take the hard work out of it. It's easy to thing that it's an unnecessary expense but with Landscape Lighting in the end, you'll increase the safety of your home while you're there , and the value of it once you decide to sell.
