If you’re heading out of town to see family, visit friends, or enjoy a well-deserved vacation during the holidays, here are a few good pieces of advice to keep in mind:
Phone a friend
Get in touch with a neighbor and let them know you’ll be out of town. Chances are, they’ll be happy to look in on your home while you’re gone.
Don’t leave clutter
While you’re at it, have your neighbor shovel the driveway, dust off any snow or leaves that accumulate on your car, and cleanup flyers or other materials. The last thing you want is for thieves to figure out that your home is unattended.
In the digital age, it’s probably not surprising that thieves target out-of-town homeowners through social media posts. Don’t be too public with your travel plans.
