Well — it’s always better to be safe than sorry!
At Simpatico Properties , we are quite good at securing our own properties in Hagerstown and we thought we’d drop by with some quick tips.
Here you go!
Befriend The Neighbors — Getting acquainted with the surrounding neighbors is a great way to ensure the security of your home… especially when it’s necessary to be away. Knowing the neighbors means it’s more likely that they’ll be keeping an eye out for suspicious activity around the property.
Install Motion-Triggered Lights — Criminals love the dark. That’s why installing motion-triggered lights around a home can help keep questionable “visitors” away. If they’re trying to sneak up on your property and a light turns on suddenly, it should get them to leave.
Install An Alarm System — Another thing to also consider is installing an alarm system. The system can be a little expensive but it’s worth the peace of mind that comes with it.
Plan For Away-Time — What is the plan for when it’s necessary to be away from home? One recommendation is to hire someone to keep an eye on the house and to maintain the lawn so that it doesn’t look like no one’s home.
Hope that helps!
