When looking to attract high-quality renters and improve security, one thing you shouldn’t overlook is the exterior lighting of your Pasadena rental home. From basic safety to curb appeal, there are many reasons you should add exterior lighting to your rental home. If an exterior lighting system isn’t a feature in any of your rental properties yet, let’s go through some of the benefits you can enjoy from having 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 sit alone outside at night or have company over– some friends or family. This can’t be done without proper exterior lighting, which makes it a really big draw.
Everyone will also benefit from the improved safety and security exterior lighting offers. Doors, walkways, driveways, and pools are all areas that must be lit well to prevent tenant injuries on your properties. Slips and falls are a major cause of tenant lawsuits and proper lighting can be extremely helpful in avoiding these incidents.
Property values and curb appeal also get a huge boost. 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 scanning around for their next target would usually move on when faced with a house that has a properly lit exterior. 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 increased security also gives the tenants a better sense of safety, even convincing them to lengthen their stay.
For these reasons alone, you should consider exterior lighting as an important investment for your rental property in Pasadena. 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.
