How worried are you about being burglarized? Well, if you weren’t before, after you read this blog, you might be. Why is that? Because there is one burglary committed every 13 seconds in this country. Naturally, the statistics vary from state to state, and even from neighborhood to neighborhood, but there are steps you can take to make your home less likely to be the next one to be broken into.
A major deterrent for burglars is an alarm system. In fact, even having the signs and stickers on your home claiming there is an alarm system could be enough to keep them away.
Most burglars enter through the front door, so making sure that it is a secure, sturdy door with a solid deadbolt lock is a good idea.
You should also be careful not to advertise your vacations on social media, since that information could be available to a dishonest person. Have someone come and cut your lawn, shovel your driveway and take in your mail while you are gone.
