Remember the old addage you only get one chance to make a good first impression. When burglars go house hunting, not all, but some are pretty fussy, so we'll give you the straight goods on what to do to catch and keep any potential thief's attention as they drive around your neighborhood..
This next photo illustrates two great selling features to thieves. First, notice the wood pile placed so conveniently, undercover and right next to the house and window, this means the burglar doesn't even need to bring his own tools with him. Second, an abundance of sliding glass patios. Many patio glass doors are installed incorrectly and there is a good chance that one of these will just lift out. (Too bad the owners don't have retractable scissor gates on the interior).
This picture would please any would be thief...
Lots of lush landscaping give what any burglar
could want... lots of cover to hide behind.
