Solar Path Lighting Can Help You Sell Your Home More Quickly

Apr 7, 2008
We all know the three words that lead to great sales in the real estate market: location, location, location. But there is something else just as important that anyone selling their home must know: curb appeal. If your home is immaculate on the inside, but the front yard looks like the local dump - no one will buy your home. But if the yard and exterior of the home is clean and inviting, people will come by the truckload to see your fabulous home. One surefire way to increase that inviting feel is to install solar path lighting.

Even Martha Does It

Now for those who are unfamiliar with what solar lighting is, let me give you an example. Many of us have heard of the domestic goddess called Martha Stewart. On her show, as well as several of her magazine covers and inside her entertaining books are pictures of brown paper bags with cut out designs, lighting up the sidewalk of a home. Sometimes these may be Chinese paper lanterns or other such decorative designs - but the way they light up the path is very similar to using solar powered lighting.

A Well-To-Do Look

Listen, I know what you're thinking: How can something like this increase the likeability of my home? Quite simply, that simple additional feature brings just a tiny bit of extra dazzle to your front lawn, as well as make you look more well to do. Being that path lighting has been featured in such magazines as Home & Garden, they have become known as something rich people own. Well, you don't have to be rich to get these, let me tell you.

Besides looking better off, path lights also help make a buyer feel safer with the property. If the buyer has children, they know that their kids will be safe coming home at night, walking up the sidewalk. If they are elderly, they will know that at night they will see anything that could make them fall, such as branches or ice. And for the concerned buyer, they will know that burglars will be less likely to enter a well-lit yard such as yours. Finally, if you place a few lights strategically at the driveway, leading up to the front door, this will increase the feeling of security for prospective buyers.

The Bragging Factor

But even better than safety and looking pretty is the all important bragging factor. Buyers love to imagine themselves standing outside a home, the envy of all who know them. This pride factor is a basic human desire, and with outdoor lighting this fantasy can appear much more real to them. Also, if you are smart and install a few more lights in the back yard, the buyer can imagine inviting people over for a party or small gathering, which increases the pride issues. Cater to this side of the soon-to-be purchasers, and you'll almost be guaranteed to win them over.

So with all these reasons, hopefully you now see how investing a small amount into solar path lighting can increase the likelihood of a quick sale, as well as the possibility of making a higher sale. And who doesn't like a little more money?
