Pools and hot tubs are often seen as some of the strongest upgrades to a home. They’re said to set a house apart from its neighbors and immediately add resale value to a property.
However, a brand new pool or hot tub doesn’t always increase a home’s value. They take months to install and thousands of dollars to build and maintain. Plus, keeping a pool clean and safe is a lot of work – sometimes more work than people want or realize.
That’s why the best, easiest and most effective way to increase a home’s resale value is investing in outdoor lighting.
Here’s the breakdown:
Increase Your Real Estate ROI
As much as homes are places to live, start careers, raise families and make memories, they’re also a substantial investment.
One of the best ways for homeowners to realize a strong ROI is by improving and developing their real estate. In many cases, this also means increasing curb appeal and differentiating a home from its neighbors. When new families are looking to move, they want to see a property that stands out.
Investing in outdoor lighting can do that.
At Nite Time Decor, we can install landscape lighting that increases your home’s curb appeal and ups its resale value. Outdoor lighting is a strong, affordable investment that will make your house stand out.
From front and backyard lighting to pool and spa lighting, landscape lighting is a simple and effective home upgrade that can attract and impress prospective buyers.
Not only can outdoor lights accentuate a home’s beautiful exterior design, they can also make your property safer. A well-lit home can deter potential criminals who fear being seen by neighbors. This is a valuable point for relators to emphasize in selling a property.
Outdoor lighting can add these benefits for minimal maintenance, unlike large and expensive upgrades, such as a pool or hot tub.
Easy and Sustainable Installation
By upgrading your home with outdoor lighting that uses LED bulbs, you can save money as well as energy.
If more consumers used LED lights, they could save $30 billion on electricity bills and reduce consumption by the equivalent output of 44 large power plants, according to the Department of Energy.
LED outdoor lighting can also save 75 percent more energy and last 25 times longer than a lighting system with incandescent bulbs.
Longer-lasting LEDs also save you a great deal of time and money on maintenance, since you won’t need to replace the bulbs as frequently.
Not only can LED outdoor lighting raise your home’s resale value, it also lowers your environmental impact, and minimizes your time and financial investment.
