Can Outdoor Lights Increase Your Home Value?

There are many benefits to installing lights on your deck, patio, front porch, or other outdoor living areas. Some of these benefits include but are not limited to, allowing you to spend more time out in those spaces, keeping family and friends from tripping over unseen items within the yard, deterring introducers from coming near your home, and creating curb appeal. One may not think that something as simple as outdoor lighting could add much value to their home, but real estate experts have shared that homes with installed outdoor lighting sell for more than homes that do not.

Future buyers of your home see the added value and appeal of having lights illuminate their back and front yards. They notice that these simple features play a key role in not only making the yard more appealing for entertaining guests but also is a huge safety component.

Where Should The Lights Be Placed?

Knowing where to place your outdoor lights is a key part of accentuating the beauty of your home. If placed in the wrong areas, the lights could have the opposite effect and keep people and future buyers disinterested in your property.

Great places to place your outdoor post cap lights and other light accessories include:

  • Pathways
  • Driveways
  • Deck & Porch Steps
  • Under Deck & Porch Railing
  • In Patio Or Garden Areas
