Vacation Home Safety Tips

Vacation House Sunset

Your home is likely your greatest investment. To help keep it safe while you're away on vacation, check out these five tips:

  • Don't list your address on the outside of your luggage. Only put your name and phone number.
  • Don't leave a spare key by your front door. Most hiding spaces are very obvious - under the doormat or flowerpot, in that fake-looking rock, or above the door.
  • Don't tell the world via social media that you will be out of town.
  • Don't leave electronics plugged in.
  • Don't leave your house in the dark. Use timers to automatically turn on lights in your house.
