Turnoff Tuesday – Lacking Lighting

Lighting has a dramatic impact on the look and feel of a space.  Poor lighting makes a home look dark and dreary.  It is imperative that all your light fixtures are in style and work well.  New fixtures are reasonably priced and can totally update a room’s look and increase the perceived value.  Replace any missing or dim light bulbs, and use the highest wattage recommended for each bulb.  Add lamps in rooms with poor lighting or to spaces for reading and other activities.  And don’t forget about the outside lighting as well…it’s just as important.

Everyone likes natural sunlight so open up blinds and curtains to allow as much light in as possible.  Make sure your windows are clean and trim back any foliage that may be blocking any light from outside.

Lighting can be used to draw a buyer’s attention to the positive attributes of your home and to detract from any negatives.

Buyers are looking for “light and bright” and since over 90% of buyers start their house hunting online, even your listing photos must portray it as well lit.  Schedule the photographer at the right time of day to capture your home’s best light.  Have all lights turned on for photos and for viewings.  If buyers can’t see your home, they won’t be excited about buying your home.

Good lighting will make your home appear cleaner and happier, which will make it more attractive to buyers and get you a faster sale at top dollar.  It just Makes $en$e.
