When making your Venice 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. Sufficient exterior lighting is very important for tenants to be comfortable and enjoy the home. They want to make use of the outdoor spaces 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. Areas that greatly need this assurance of safety include doors, walkways, driveways, and pools. Making sure that these areas are well lit can prevent many tenant injuries on your properties. Slips and falls are a major cause of tenant lawsuits and proper lighting can be extremely helping in avoiding these incidents.
Think about property values and curb appeal as well. A carefully designed exterior lighting system can enhance certain aspects of your property, create visual appeal, and showcase landscaping or architectural features. A well-lit house doesn’t only increase your property’s value but, on top of that, it attracts quality renters and helps retain them.
Lastly, exterior lighting offers 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 a very good option for spaces that don’t need to be lit throughout the night but would still benefit from a light-fueled mischief deterrent. The additional security also affects how the tenants feel, encouraging them to lengthen their stay.
For these reasons, you should seriously consider installing exterior lighting for your rental property in Venice. By installing exterior light fixtures in selected strategic places, you can design a safe and attractive rental property that you can benefit from for years to come.
