During this time of year, you may be worrying more about your home safety. However, you will no longer have to worry if you are taking the proper precautions to ensure your home and family are safe and secure. Our team at Brazelton Insurance Group wants you to stay safe by taking note of the following tips:
Keep your home lit: The most common target for thieves is dark houses that seem vacant. The easiest way to prevent your house from looking vacant is simply leaving the lights on or have a timer for your lights to turn on periodically. This will steer thieves away from trespassing on your property giving them the impression that someone is home.
Start an inventory: Keep an inventory of personal belongings such as valuables in a hidden location that only family members are aware of. If a burglary occurs at your property, you will be able to know exactly what is missing.
Do not advertise you are not home: One of the easiest ways a thief will trespass on your property is through social media posts. If you announce that your house is vacant since you are traveling, the chances of burglary increases.
Guarantee you are covered: Even with all of these precautions, there is still a chance your home may be burglarized. However, you can be covered through homeowners insurance for your personal belongings in an event of a burglary occurring at your property.
