If you’re relaxing on a Caribbean beach, or enjoying a bus tour through historic Paris, the last thing you want to worry about is your home. Most people know the basics of keeping a home secure while away. Here are some additional tips that are easy to miss:

 

• Tell your kids not to boast about your fabulous vacation plans, especially on social media. The fewer who know that the house will be empty, the better.

 

• Ask a neighbour to pick up any mail and flyers dropped at your doorstep. But don’t rely on that alone. Also call the newspaper and post office to temporarily halt delivery.

 

• You can buy timers to automatically turn lights on and off. However, most will stop working if the power goes out and restart with the incorrect time when the power comes back on. That’s why you should keep at least a couple of lights turned on continuously, and not connected to timers.

 

• If you’re leaving in the evening, or before dawn, don’t forget to open the blinds. Closed blinds during the day are a dead giveaway that the owners are away.

 

Finally, experts recommend creating a home security checklist, so you don’t forget anything. That will give you peace-of-mind.

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
