3 ways an Electrician can Help you Spark Buyers’ Attention

If you’re planning to sell your home, you want to make sure that it stands out to potential buyers. While there are many factors that can influence a buyer’s decision, one of the most effective ways is through your home’s lighting. In this blog, we will guide you through our top 3 ways an Electrician can help you spark buyers attention and get your home market-ready.

Strategically placed lights can help to make the home appear larger, brighter, and more inviting. Natural lighting can also help to highlight features of the home. Whilst carefully arranged lighting can create a welcoming atmosphere that potential buyers will appreciate. An electrician can help you with lighting when selling your home by making sure all the lighting fixtures are in good working order, installing new fixtures, and helping you choose the best lighting for each area of the home. In this blog, we will list our top three ways an electrician can do to help you get your home ready for sale:

#1 Update or Install Lighting Fixtures

An electrician can also help to make your home look more appealing by installing new lighting fixtures. This can include things like pendant lights over your kitchen bench, downlights throughout your home, outdoor lighting and more. Pendant lighting is very stylish and popular amongst homeowners. It’s important to consider the homes style, size of the space when finding the perfect pendant light for your home.

If you don’t have downlights in your home, installing them can also bring a sophisticated modern look and help create a welcoming ambiance. LED downlights can also provide a cost saving by being more energy efficient.

Outdoor and garden lighting can make your home look inviting and well maintained. It can be used to highlight landscape features and create attractive outdoor living areas.

#2 Update Switches and Outlets

Another task an electrician can do to help prepare your home for sale is update switches and outlets. Sometimes outdated switches and outlets can turn off white due to their age or perhaps aren’t in the best positions for the home’s layout. An electrician can replace older switches and outlets with modern ones and make sure they are safe and up to code. 

Homeowners may want to consider outlets like the Lucci Power Gravity Twin, which is a modern look and includes 2 USB charging ports. This also helps to make sure your home looks more appealing and inviting to potential buyers.

#3 Install, Service or Replace Electrical fixtures

If you’re planning to sell an investment property, its important to ensure you have enough smoke detectors. This can help ensure the safety of potential buyers, and if it’s a Victorian property, ensure it’s compliant. From March 2021, rental providers or landlords were required to make sure enough smoke alarms are properly installed and working in all rental properties.

Homeowners may also want to consider engaging an Electrician to service white good appliances. Occasionally these can be inspected during a building and pest inspection, and recent electrical test and tags will make buyers more comfortable. They can inspect and repair, update switches and outlets, install lighting fixtures, fittings and more! Overall, with these top 3 tips and a qualified electrician you can get your home ready in no time.
