Home Thefts – theft from both vacant and occupied homes are chronic problems. Here are some practical tips for reduce the risk to your property.

I was reading two articles this morning. One was published in the Metro Times about a 71-year old woman who stayed at her niece’s for a week only to return to find her home scrapped and destroyed. It’s a heart breaking story. http://metrotimes.com/culture/broken-home-1.1288386

I was also reading a discussion from insurance professionals discussing the increased occurrence of illegal scrapping from construction sites and vacant buildings. The solutions discussed were not all applicable to the typical home owner or property owner.

One of the insurance professionals shared a link to an article with some excellent information that can you understand how to make your home a less interesting target. Having your home broken burglarized or vandalized is upsetting even if you have adequate insurance protection. Maybe you’ll find some useful ideas here to avoid becoming the next victim:   http://www.crimedoctor.com/home.htm
