Taking a few simple safety precautions can help to prevent unfortunate circumstances at home. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Novi and Northville neighborhoods and we know that criminal activities, such as home burglaries, are often heightened by criminal opportunities. Gain peace of mind with the knowledge that you’ve taken some steps to help protect your home from burglaries. Get a dog, a “beware of dog” sign or place a partially chewed extra-large rawhide bone by your back door. Intruders don’t want to cope with large dogs. Keep the garage closed. Not only do garages often provide sheltered places for burglars to break into your home without being seen from the street, they’re also where you most likely keep easily-fenced items like bicycles, power tools, and golf clubs. Use automatic timers are a great idea. Putting automatic timers on lights and radios to go on and off at different times makes it look as if someone is home when no one’s there. These suggestions can be especially important when you’re away from home for an extended time. Check out below to see what sold in Liberty Park in February 2016:

Make sure all windows and doors are locked in your house. This may sound basic, but it’s surprising how often a burglar can just walk in. Make sure any sliding doors are extra secure, as these are often seen as an easy point of entry.
