There are a lot of insurance agencies that can protect you against unforeseen circumstances; however, this article will show you practical steps to prevent break-ins when you are away on vacation.

Blow the whistle after and the vacation and not during the vacation

It’s vacation, why do we need to stay low? I am sure you are asking this question right now. Often time we get tempted by wanting to update and share pictures or video via our social media the fun we are having, the beautiful places we are, and the different cuisine we are having.

The truth is, it is a bad idea; many thieves get their information through social media; posting pictures, videos or updating your availability can lead to your lovely home being burgled.

You can, however, blow the whistle after the vacation, when you are at home. Waiting till you get back is difficult, it is mandatory for the safety of your property

Make your home lively while you are away

Just because you are way doesn’t mean your house needs to be “quiet.” Burglars look for the quiet houses with no activities; pay someone to mow the lawn, have someone to switch on and off your house lights, stop the newspaper deliveries, and mail deliveries or you can have friends to pick them up daily.

These activities will give the impression that people are living in the house.

Rental’s/Homeowner’s insurance

Get a good rental’s or homeowner’s insurance; it covers your legal or liability responsibility for any property damage you and your family cause to other people and it also covers damage to your property.

Keep an up-to-date inventory

Record every valuable in your house, as you acquire new things you update your inventory. Keep a record of your precious items such as serial numbers, receipts, photos or appraisals of your valuables (tools, electronics, and jewelry).

If you do not keep an up-to-date inventory, you may not know what is missing in your home.

Let your windows and doors be visible

Let your entrance be visible to the public; keep your trees and shrubs close to the windows and doors trimmed, the majority of break-ins happen when everyone is away to work or schools, do not give them the chance to sneak into your house with the help of greenery.

Also, you can hire someone to trim you’re your flowers, shrubs, or trees while you are away. Unkempt greenery is a telltale sign that nobody’s home and it may attract burglars to your lovely home.

Secure your homes

With the aid of surveillance cameras, motion activated lights monitored home security system, and high-quality solid wood or metal doors will make your home a hard target to burgle. A neighborhood watch group is also a great place to start.

If you are not a fan of the high-tech security you can spend your money on strong bolts for doors and windows, these may not stop them from entry but will create a lot of noise which will attract neighbors.

Be unpredictable

Give your spare house key to a trusted friend or neighbor rather than hiding your house key under the doormat or in a vase beside your door.

Secondly, when going on vacation keep your valuables somewhere different apart from the master bedroom. You can keep them in a safe, in a case where you do not have a safe, you can keep your valuables in the children’s room burglars don’t usually check the kids’ room for valuables they go for the master bedroom.
