The Importance of Exterior Lighting for Your Palm Harbor Rental Home

Exterior Lighting is the Perfect Addition to Your Palm Harbor Rental HomeWhen making your Palm Harbor rental home attractive to good renters while protecting it at the same time, one detail to keep in mind is exterior lighting. From basic safety to curb appeal, there are many reasons you should add exterior lighting to your rental home. If your rental properties don’t have any exterior lighting systems in place, consider adding one. As we will see below, there are many benefits to having one installed.

The first benefit of exterior lighting is, well, light. Tenants need sufficient exterior lighting to appreciate the home and feel comfortable. They want to be able to enjoy their outdoor spaces even after dark. They may want to hold parties and gatherings for family or friends or stay outside by themselves to enjoy the night alone, and this can only be done if there is sufficient exterior lighting– making it a big draw.

Everyone will also benefit from the improved safety and security exterior lighting offers. Many tenant injuries can be prevented by properly lighting the driveways, walkways, doors, and pools of your properties. Slips and falls are a major cause of tenant lawsuits and proper lighting can be extremely helping in avoiding these incidents.

Property values will rise and curb appeal will improve as well. 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.

Lastly, 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 areas that would benefit from lighting but don’t need to be lit all night long, you can place motion detecting lights. Think of them as a light-fueled mischief deterrent. The additional security also affects how the tenants feel, encouraging them 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 Palm Harbor rental property. By fitting exterior light fixtures in strategic areas, you can make a safe and attractive rental property that will yield high returns for you in the years to come.
