SAFETY WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME

You have enough to think about without worrying that your home isn't safe, or that things may be stolen. Open houses and showings mean strangers will be in your house. A few safeguards can lessen your worry:

Remove things that matter: Store jewelry, fine art or collectables with a friend or family member. If that's not an option, find a place to hide valuables in your home or keep them with you in a suitcase and take it with you when you leave. The same applies to personal papers with account numbers and/or social security information. And medicine cabinets are often a target.

Secure your home: Keep doors and windows locked. Prospective buyers will often open windows or doors. Some will even do that to return later to steal things. Others may even visit several times and bring an accomplice to distract the agent. So double-check doors and windows when returning after a showing.

Consider an alarm system: It may seem impractical to install a system when you'll be moving, but it will not only deter burglars, but may also be a strong selling point.

Make it look like you're home: If you're currently living in the home, think about installing motion sensors or timers to automatically turn on lights.

Reach out to your neighbors: Ask them to keep an eye on your place.Introduce them to your agent so they know things are okay when the agent is on the premises.

By taking these extra precautions, you can feel safe and secure during a home sale.
