We get asked all the time if landscape lighting increases home value. It’s not an easy question to answer. Let’s examine what lighting does for your home and when it doesn’t. There are two kinds of home improvements that people can make. The first is to maintain and improve the functionality of your home (AC, roof, windows etc. The second is for their enjoyment. It generally includes pools, spas and tennis courts, as well as landscape lighting.
How does landscape lighting increase home value?
Let’s first consider where your home is. It may not be worth the extra value if your home is among the most luxurious and well-maintained homes in your area. It will improve curb appeal. Prospective buyers may notice if there is landscape lighting in the neighborhood, but not you. You might be perceived as being cheap. Are there other parts of your house that are less expensive? This second example will show you how lighting can make your home blend in with the neighborhood. Landscape lighting can increase the home’s value if your home is among the most affordable homes in your area.
You can add lighting to your landscape for added enjoyment
We install lights not just because they increase home value. This is a side effect. The majority of homes we light are lit for the pleasure of their owners. They want their home to be safer. They may want to increase their entertaining potential by extending the use of their outdoor spaces after dark or late at night. Many of our Marco Island and Naples customers want their walkways and docks to be illuminated at night. They and their passengers can safely get off the boat onto the dock on those evenings after a sunset cruise.
