At Management Plus, we love anything simple that increases the value of an association.  


Cheap investments that pay off in a big way down the line are investments every association should keep their eyes on.  


One of the simplest, yet most impactful changes you can make to boost your community association’s value is investing in quality lighting.  


Public lighting upgrades and different kinds of lighting throughout your association can have a profound impact on how residents and outsiders value your community. 


Your community is already beautiful during the day, and with a few lighting upgrades, it will look beautiful at night too! 


This post will go over how you can make lighting upgrades to your community to increase its value.  


What Outdoor Lighting Does for Your Community 


Outdoor lighting upgrades can noticeably increase your association's value. But beyond that, it can make your community more appealing and make it a safer place to live.  


Let’s look at some of the major ways that lighting upgrades boost your community’s value.  


Boost Nighttime Appeal 


Your community is a beautiful place to live during the day, but what about at night?  


If your community is lacking in lighting, then it may come off as shadowy, grim, or frightening when the sun starts to set.  


Warm street lighting will light up homes’ exteriors and illuminate streets and alleys to ensure that your community is inviting at any time of the day.  


Highlight the Best Features 


Your community is home to many unique and enticing features. You can find a large variety of directional spotlights that will boost the appeal of features native to your community.  


Some top features include: 


  • Flags 

  • Plaques 

  • Fountains  

  • Banners 

  • Trees 

  • Murals 


But don’t stop there! Anything that makes your community unique should be shown off, day or night.  


Accent Lighting Goes a Long Way 


We love accent lighting because you just need a little bit to make a big impact.  


Lighting community entrance signs, trees, shrubs, or historical buildings with unique lighting can make these key features pop. 


Don't stop with spotlights here! Consider unique lighting like LED strips, diffused light, and ground path lighting to make an effect. 


Your Community Appears Safer 


No matter how safe your community is, dark eerie spaces will make it intimidating to outsiders and locals alike. 


Illuminate streets, alleys, parking lots, walkways, stairways, and more to boost safety and make navigating your community easier. 


Create a Line of Lights 


Your residents or visitors should never have to wonder where they are going. A line of lights is a cheap and effective way to create a path and guide people to key locations like restaurants, parks, or community hubs. 


Also, placing a string of lights on fences is a great way to create improve visibility and inform pedestrians about perimeters and boundaries.
