You can protect your Winter Garden rental home and make it attractive to quality renters at the same time by placing strategic exterior lighting. From basic safety to curb appeal, there are many reasons you should add exterior lighting to your rental home. If you don’t have an exterior lighting system for your rental properties yet, here are some benefits you can get from installing one.
The first benefit of exterior lighting is, well, light. Sufficient exterior lighting allows tenants to feel comfortable and enjoy the home. They want their outdoor spaces to be usable even at night. They may want to use it for events with family or friends, or even to sit outside at night and enjoy the place alone; this is only possible with exterior lighting, making it attractive to tenants.
Everyone will also benefit from the improved safety and security exterior lighting offers. Some areas where this is extremely valuable are doors, walkways, driveways, and pools. Lighting these areas sufficiently goes a long way to prevent tenant injuries on your properties. Slips and falls are a major cause of tenant lawsuits and proper lighting can be extremely helping in avoiding these incidents.
Take to account property values and curb appeal as well. A carefully designed exterior lighting system can enhance certain aspects of your property, create visual appeal, and showcase landscaping or architectural features. A properly lit house does more than increase the value of your property, it also increases your capacity to attract high-value renters and your ability to retain them.
Finally, exterior lighting offers a significant value when it comes to home security. Criminals or vandals will often skip a house with a properly lit exterior when they’re looking for an easy target. Motion detecting lights are an especially good alternative for areas that don’t require all-night lightings but would still be well-served by a light-fueled mischief deterrent. The tenants, too, will get a greater sense of security in the home, making them want to lengthen their stay.
These reasons that we’ve enumerated would hopefully persuade you to look at exterior lighting, not just as an optional feature, but as an investment needed for your Winter Garden rental property. By setting up exterior light fixtures to illuminate certain strategic spaces, you can be the owner of a safe and attractive rental property; and it will serve you well for a long time.
