Mow your lawn
It’s no secret that burglars tend to target unoccupied homes. They want to make sure that there are no witnesses while they perform their misdeeds. One way to trick burglars into thinking that someone’s at home is by mowing your lawn.
No, we’re not a part of your HOA, so we won’t complain if you don’t maintain your front lawn. However, a mowed lawn is usually a clear-as-day sign that someone’s at home. If you’re going out of town, hire a local neighborhood kid to mow your lawn every week. You’ll have to spend a couple of bucks, but it’s worth it if it stops burglars from entering your home.
