Selling a home after a potential buyer has seen a lackluster exterior is almost impossible. That first impression is everything. That’s why when Architectural Digest listed the “Top 5 Outdoor Features that Will Add Value to Your Home,” we sat up and listened.
First Impressions Are Everything
According to Jill Penman, expert real estate associate in Florida, the outdoor living capital of the U.S.; outdoor lighting is crucial. With carefully designed landscape lighting to highlight the stunning landscape, whether it be garden beds, hardscapes, and pathways or focal features, your outdoor features can be enjoyed at night. The lighting not only provides gorgeous ambiance and appeal, but it also adds safety and security, all of which increase your property’s value.
Professional Landscape Lighting Design
At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington, we would like to take this assertion one step further by reiterating the value of quality lights and expert lighting design. Our copper lights weather beautifully in the Coastal Carolina climate. This is vital when showing a home to a prospective buyer. I can’t begin to explain how awful plastic big box landscape lights begin to look after a season of weather has dulled their color and clouded their lenses. If you happen to be showing your home during the day, those weathered plastic lights can be devastating to the first impression.
When it comes to showing your home at night, our professionally designed outdoor lighting system will wow your buyer as they approach in their car. The custom artistic design of the landscape lights highlighting the best-selling features of your home and landscape is just the tip of the iceberg. As they enter your home, they’ll enjoy the sense of warmth and comfort, almost as effective as baking chocolate chip cookies. When they arrive indoors, and the listing agent explains that you have an energy efficient LED outdoor lighting system with the best quality lights, installation, transformers and timers, that will be the icing on the cake.
