Ways to Prevent House Theft While You're Away on Vacation

When you go on vacation, the last thing you want to do is worry. When preparing and packing for your vacation, you must take several steps to help prevent house theft while you're away.

  • Make sure your security system and all alarms are activated and set.
  • Lock and secure all doors and windows, including your garage door.
  • Cancel newspaper deliveries while you're away - and do not inform the newspaper carrier that you'll be away.
  • Arrange for someone to care for and maintain your yard.
  • Install motion detector lights around your home.
  • Set automatic timers on indoor lights a week or two before you leave to establish a pattern.
  • Avoid leaving valuables where they can be seen through the windows.
  • Leave your drapes in the normal position.

Lastly, if you return home from vacation and there are signs of burglary, do not go inside, but instead call 911 immediately. For more house safety tips, contact Michelle Buckman. Representing W.C. & A.N.
