Crime is on the rise nationwide, including at rental properties because criminals will target anyone.
Thankfully, you can do your part to ensure the safety of your tenants by following these tips:
Tip #1 – Invest In Security Doors And Windows For Your Property
Let’s face it, if the doors and windows on your property can be easily opened, this means that criminals can also use them as access points to enter your property as well.
The first upgrade that you should make to your property is new doors and windows because they are often the first line of defense at stopping criminals from forcing their way into a property.
Tip #2 – Clean Up The Landscape Surrounding The Property
Does your rental property have overgrown trees, shrubs, or other vegetation that could offer criminals good places to hide?
If so, it’s time to clean up the overgrown plants because you want to remove any opportunities for criminals to wait and hide until tenants come home. Doing this will also help to boost the value of your property and make it more desirable to future tenants as well.
Tip #3 – Invest In Lighting For The Driveway To The Front Door
Since crime often happens when people come home after a long day at work, another smart upgrade that you can make to your property that will also keep your tenants safe is new lighting.
Specifically, you want to invest in lighting from the driveway to the front door, so that your tenant has a clear, well-lit path that they can easily take to their rental without having to be concerned for their safety.
