Memorial Day weekend is approaching and before you know it, summer vacation season will be in full swing! Traveling out of town for a relaxing week-long vacation is something many homeowners look forward to year-round, although it could mean trouble for your property – especially if your home is for sale. Let’s discuss the importance of home security and how The Team Edge can help you sell your home fast before vacation season arrives.
Why is Home Security Important in the Summer?
Burglars perceive the summer months as an opportunity to strike, often seeking out properties that appear unattended. If you are trying to sell your home, your property could be at an even greater risk since a potential intruder will often assume that the home is vacant. The best defense against an attack is to invest in a home security system. Smart home security systems are equipped with window, door, and motion sensors that will notify you when any foul play is detected and set off an alarm to deter the intruder.
How to Deter Burglars From Your Home While You’re on Vacation
Without a home security system, there are a few different ways you can deter burglars from attacking your property while you’re on vacation. If you don’t want the home you are selling to become a target, consider the following tips:
- Request for the USPS to temporarily hold your mail (nothing says vacant like a mailbox overflow)
- Leave a few lights on (home security systems that are equipped with automatic lighting timers are incredibly beneficial)
- Leave a couple of your blinds and curtains open (but remove anything of value from plain sight)
- Ensure that all of your windows and locks are secured and functioning properly
- Hire a trusted neighbor or friend to keep an eye on your property and notify you of any suspicious activity
