Be More Cautious than the Neighbors
Although this might not sound fair, it’s just a fact of life. However secure your home is, make sure it is at least as secure as your neighbors’ homes.
For example, if you have motion-activated security lights and your neighbor doesn’t, guess which house a burglar is going to try and break into? Thieves aren’t choosy about which property they target – they just want the easiest one.
So if they see you have security lights, a ‘beware of the dog’ sign and a security alarm, they’re going to try your neighbor’s place instead.
