Give Your Fort Myers Home a Competitive Advantage in the Real Estate Market with LED Outdoor Lighting

 

driveway_entryway_lighting_naplesAre you preparing your Fort Myers home to sell? There is a plethora of advice and To-Do’s for selling your home for top dollar and without delay. From staging the inside of your home, to baking cookies before a showing, there are many ways to give the potential new owner that initial good feeling they need to consider buying. While there is plenty of good advice out there, nothing has the same impact as making sure the first impression of your home is a good one. With outdoor lighting you can add subtle or dramatic impact from the street, visually increase the square footage of your home and add value that will attract the best buyers.

Why Invest in Outdoor Lighting Before Moving?

Making your home stick out from the crowd is a sure fire way to get top dollar when selling. Outdoor lighting highlights the character and beauty that is unique to your Fort Myers home’s architectural design and landscape features. Our customized LED outdoor lighting design will illuminate the texture of your stucco, the expanse of your plantation home’s veranda, the clay tiles of your Mediterranean home and all the unique features that makes your home a true masterpiece. With the added benefit of choosing gorgeous landscape features to highlight, we’ll be sure to let your shrubbery, flowers, stunning palms and southern Oaks enjoy the limelight after the sun sets as well.

Visually Expand Your Home’s Square Footage

naples_waterfeature_lighting5In the Fort Myers and Naples area, our outdoor space is a true extension of our indoor living space. With mild weather all year long, we can use the space quite comfortably for much of the year. With the addition of outdoor lighting to your outdoor living space, a potential buyer will come in and see that outdoor space as part of the usable square footage. Illuminating your lanai, deck, patio and even the perimeter of your lot gives buyers a visual feeling of a larger space where they can spend time making memories with their family and friends for years to come.

Increase the Value of Your Home

With outdoor lighting your home gains value in multiple ways and at a lower cost than some other home improvement projects that don’t have the same punch. While the good feelings you’ll give buyers with the added curb appeal and extended living space certainly adds aesthetic value, there are some more tangible value adds to having a properly designed top quality professional outdoor lighting system. LED outdoor lighting adds safety and security to your property, offering peace of mind to any potential buyer who wants to provide a safe home for their family. Add to that the energy efficiency of our LED system and you’ll impress today’s eco-conscious buyer who is looking for lower utility costs and a smaller carbon footprint.

Put Outdoor Lighting on Your Holiday List This Year

Give a truly memorable gift this season - outdoor lighting.

Give a truly memorable gift this season – outdoor lighting.

Have you decided what you want for Christmas this year? The days are counting down, and we’re just about three weeks away. If you still don’t know what you want or if you’re stuck on what to get for that special someone who has everything, consider outdoor lighting. The best gifts are those that are used frequently, but ones you either didn’t think of buying for yourself or were just putting off for some reason or another. Outdoor lighting is the perfect gift for a spouse, parent, or homeowning child. Not only will it keep giving night after night all year long, but it will transform their home.

 

There are many practical benefits of outdoor lighting. It increases the functionality of a property, allowing homeowners to use outdoor living spaces once darkness falls. It increases safety by illuminating potential trip hazards and enhances security by reducing shadowed places where unsavory characters can hide. Outdoor lighting also increases curb appeal and can affect property value if a homeowner decides to sell. But in addition to all of these benefits, outdoor lighting profoundly affects the ambiance and beauty of a property. Outdoor lighting can be designed to evoke many different moods – festive, serene, warm, elegant, or enchanting. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples, we design systems that complement the property and match the homeowner’s personality. Our systems highlight each property’s very best features, and homeowners are routinely surprised by how beautiful their properties really are once the lights come on.

 

In additional to its practical benefits, outdoor lighting transforms the atmosphere of outdoor living spaces.

Make Any Event A Special Event With Professional Outdoor Lighting

While other homeowners around the country are just starting to pack it in and head inside for the cooler weather, we’re just getting started in Naples. During the summer, if we host an outdoor event at our homes we’re more likely to just have a bunch of unhappy, sweaty guests on our lawn. But as the weather changes down here, we won’t get the Fall freeze that will be felt elsewhere around the country. We’ll have beautiful, warm fall nights that start earlier and end later. It’s prime time for hosting special events at your home with beautiful home enhancements by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples.

Outdoor lighting can take you to another place in your own Naples backyard

Create a one-of-a-kind tropical atmosphere in your yard this fall with professional outdoor lighting.

Whether you plan to host a few small get-togethers or have a big block party every weekend, make your special events a night to remember by creating a unique atmosphere with your outdoor lighting. We can help you go big with spotlights and flood lights, or we can design an elegant, subtle ambience. With either option, your home and your special event are sure to be the star of the show.

Some of your Naples neighbors might take shortcuts this season with cheaper options, such as Tiki torches and other lighting. But here’s why it’s smarter and more effective to do it right with professional outdoor lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples:

  • Southwest Florida's outdoor lighting looks like natural light when the CRI is above 80.

    The benefits of installing professional outdoor lighting are endless.

    • Safety: A line of Tiki torches or a couple of lamps strung along the patio aren’t going to provide enough light for guests to get around your property safely. Light up important walkways with path lights, or illuminate the entire yard with professionally placed flood lights and other fixtures.
  • The view: If you want your home to stand out from all the rest, an expert at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples can help you plan a one-of-a-kind lighting design for you. Bring out the best of your home and show off your unique personality with an elegant, polished look the neighbors will envy.

Outdoor Lighting Make Homes More Competitive in a Reviving Market

Summer is here, school is out, and everyone is focused on vacation and taking it easy. It’s the season of relaxation and family time. Did you know that it is also the season for buying homes? It’s true. The housing market experiences an increase in the spring and summer, and this year the housing market in Southwest Florida is looking promising. We are showing signs of improvement, and buyers are even being competitive with each other, something that has been a rarity in recent home-for-sale-signyears. Brokers are beginning to see multiple offers on homes at the same time. It really is an exciting time to be in the market. Perhaps you are planning to sell your home this year, or you may be looking to buy. Either way, adding outdoor lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples is an improvement that will benefit your property in many ways.

 

If you are in the market to sell, you are probably sprucing up your home with new paint, flooring, landscaping. When staging your home for show, first impressions are extremely important. Just as people do with each other, we make value judgments within the first few seconds, so that first impression matters. Be sure that your property is striking from the moment a perspective buyer rounds the corner. Add outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting gives you curb appeal in ways that other improvements can’t. It creates elegance and style. Your lighting system could make your home look regal and refined or mysterious and enchanting. By working with our designers, you can have the house that stands out on the block, the house that perspective buyers will have a hard time walking away from.

If you are in the market to buy, you will probably begin customizing your home as soon as you move in. Redecorating and restyling a new home is what makes it personal, and many new homeowners start this process with landscaping. The yard will make the first impression on your family and friends as you being to show off your new property. Consider adding outdoor lighting as you are doing landscape work. If our designers have the opportunity to work with your landscape designers, we can prevent many potential challenges, and your property will be “under construction” for less time.

 

Selling or buying, one of our lighting packages is a great place to start. You can add additional lights, if desired, to better accommodate your property. So call us today. No matter what your aim in this year’s market, outdoor lighting is the right choice.

Naples’ Top Three Outdoor Lighting Blunders Can be Avoided When You Hire a Professional for Your Naples Home

As outdoor lighting professionals, we really do want everyone’s property to look its best, especially when it comes to their outdoor lighting. You know that cringe you feel when you see work in your field of expertise that just isn’t well executed? This is how we feel when we see poorly installed or designed outdoor lighting. Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad outdoor lighting. Homeowners and other non-professionals who attempt to install an outdoor lighting system certainly have the best intentions, but a lack of knowledge can lead to mistakes that prevent the property from looking its best. By allowing Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples to install your system, you can avoid these common outdoor lighting blunders.

 

Awkward Fixtures – We all know the scene, a small spotlight or floodlight installed near a wall or corner, probably in a mulched area. It stands out day or night, and it is one of the first things you see when you approach the home. When designing a system, it is important for people to see the effect of outdoor lighting not the lights themselves. Fixtures should blend into the landscape rather than drawing the eye. If fixtures are positioned awkwardly or are the incorrect fixture for the area,

The fixtures draw more attention to themselves than what they should be illuminating

The fixtures draw more attention to themselves than what they should be illuminating

they garner more attention than the lighting itself. To eliminate this blunder, be sure that you have a professional install your lights. That way, they are positioned correctly. By using high quality fixtures from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, their shape and color will blend into your landscape. Our copper fixtures develop a patina finish over time that is stylish and even has camouflaging characteristics.

 

Insufficient Illumination – If the wrong fixtures are chosen or if the lighting configuration is incorrect, a home will be riddled with either dark spots or hot spots. These areas are unattractive and ineffective. Having plenty of fixtures correctly positioned bathes the exterior of a home showcasing all of its architectural elements. This doesn’t mean that the façade of a well lit home is white washed with light, but it does mean that shadowed areas don’t look like a monster is lurking there. A consistent wash of light with purposeful areas of shadow is not only more appealing; it is also safer, giving residents and guests clear visibility. To eliminate this blunder, have a professional install your lights so fixtures are positioned for optimal illumination.

Poor outdoor lighting does nothing to enhance the look of your home

Solar Lighting – While it is true that solar lighting is ideal in terms of energy consumption, the technology is not developed sufficiently to transform it into quality outdoor lighting. Solar lights harvest energy from the sun and store it to burn at night. Unfortunately, current solar fixtures cannot store enough energy to shine consistently, brightly, or naturally. Often, solar lights are dim, oddly colored, or even off. Though the lights are supposed to turn on when the sun goes down, they often turn off randomly and are not reliable. Many homeowners who choose this option are trying to be more environmentally conscious, but they would be much better off choosing a quality LED system. Our LED lights are energy efficient, long lasting, and indistinguishable from halogen lights. Your property will be environmentally friendly without sacrificing any of the look you crave.

 

If you are about to install an outdoor lighting system, don’t fall victim of these blunders. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today. With us doing the work, your outdoor lighting will be in the best professional hands.
