During the summer months, burglary rates skyrocket. In order to reduce your home’s vulnerabilities, keep these 4 simple tips in mind:
- If you cannot afford a home security system, put a sign up that you have it anyways. This sign can thwart a burglary. It is best that you do not advertise which home security system you have or are claiming to have though, because then they can research loopholes.
- If you are a good neighbor, you will have good neighbors to help you out in return. Seek friendship in your neighbors and they will keep a watch on your home.
- While you may think that you are being sneaky by hiding your valuables in the top shelf of your closet, chances are that is the first place a criminal will look. Consider storing your valuables somewhere a criminal would not think to look.
- Increase visibility into your home. Many homeowners do the opposite, however, criminals will not want to enter a home where they can be seen from the outside.
