Take this quick quiz to find out if you home is a potential target for burglars.
1.) Do you live in a ground-floor apartment?
2.) Is your home surrounded by thick foliage and trees?
3.) Are the windows and doors of your home old and in disrepair?
4.) Is your street dark and without lights?
5.) Is your home unoccupied often because of business or part-time residency?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, your home may be a natural target for burglars.
If your home fits any of these descriptions, you may want to consider ways to improve home security and develop a burglar-prevention plan to keep your family safe.
Even if you live in a low-crime neighborhood, crime-reporting statistics and studies by insurers show that certain types of homes and neighborhoods are more vulnerable to crime.
