selling your home

When it comes to staging your home and showing it to potential buyers, there are a lot of things you’ll want to take into consideration. After all, you want your home to look its very best in the photographs posted on your listing and in-person; during an open house or private tours.

Lighting is an underrated facet of successfully selling your home. Good lighting is absolutely essential:

  • Poor lighting hurts the quality of your photos – Professional photographs require professional lighting. Poor lighting can make it difficult for buyers to see your pictures clearly. In photographs, rooms may appear much darker than they actually are if proper lighting isn’t used. Because your pictures represent your home, they are critical to motivating potential buyers to schedule in-home viewing appointments.
  • Poor lighting makes your home feel smaller – The darker a room is, the smaller it tends to feel. People looking at your home are going to have a much better impression of it if your space is well lit. Small rooms in particular are going to feel even smaller if they are dark. Introduce more natural light and artificial light to make your spaces feel more open.
  • Poor lighting makes your home feel less taken care of – If buyers viewing your home notice certain light fixtures don’t work or the light is too dim in some rooms, they’re going to get the impression you don’t take good care of your house. They may also assume there are other issues. Darker rooms feel dirtier and less inviting.

These are a few reasons why it’s so important to ensure your home’s lighting is good. Fix all outlets and light fixtures that aren’t working and change out your lightbulbs before photographing and showing your home.
