You can attract quality renters and improve security at the same time by placing exterior lighting in your Denham Springs rental home. From basic safety to curb appeal, there are many reasons you should add exterior lighting to your rental home. If you have no exterior lighting systems installed in any of your rental properties yet, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of adding one.
The first benefit of exterior lighting is, well, light. Well placed exterior lighting is crucial for tenants to be able to enjoy and be comfortable in the home. They want to use their outdoor spaces at night. They could host events for friends and family or just take some time alone enjoying the night air. Either way, adequate exterior lighting would really be a big draw.
Everyone will also benefit from the improved safety and security exterior lighting offers. Many tenant injuries on your properties can be prevented by properly lighting walkways, driveways, doors, and pools. Slips and falls are a major cause of tenant lawsuits and proper lighting can be extremely helping in avoiding these incidents.
Think about how this affects property values and curb appeal. A carefully designed exterior lighting system can enhance certain aspects of your property, create visual appeal, and showcase landscaping or architectural features. Not only will a well-lit house increase the property value but it also will help draw and keep quality renters.
Finally, exterior lighting offers a significant value when it comes to home security. Criminals or vandals in search for easy victims will usually skip the house with a properly lit exterior. For spaces that would benefit from having lights placed, but don’t require it to be switched on throughout the night, you can install motion detecting lights. They serve well as a light-fueled mischief deterrent. The extra security also makes the tenants feel more secure, even giving them the urge to stay longer.
These reasons alone should hopefully convince you to consider investing in exterior lighting for your rental property in Denham Springs. By putting exterior light fixtures in strategic spaces, you can create a rental property that is safe and attractive; and will generate good returns for many years.
