If you’re moving into a new home in Austin, here’s the first thing you should do after closing:
Make sure you have a fully functioning home security system for the property in your name before moving in one single item or one single family member.
New homeowners are twice as likely than others to have a break-in within their first year of living in a home.
And based upon our experience, it happens way sooner than that, most often at time of move in.
Because that’s when you are most vulnerable.
The bad guys have been watching the house. They saw the for-sale sign, the sold sign and the empty boxes outside the curb.
They have a complete inventory of your home, simply by watching you move in.
They also know the pattern of most new homeowners. Most move in over a few days or a week.
Guess what that means?
The home is vacant with valuable stuff inside. And since these professional thieves know that most homeowners delay home security until well after move-in. they feel free to do their dirty work and rob you blind.
It’s because of these reasons that we recommend new homeowners make home security the first item on their “to do” list.
If your new home comes with an alarm system, callus to make sure it is activated and monitored prior to move in. We do our alarm monitoring from a UL certified, top-rated monitoring center located right here in Texas.
We’ll make sure you understand the strengths and limitations of the system. We’ll show you how to use it and make sure that you are 100% comfortable with what you have.
If the home does not come with an alarm system, call us prior to closing on your new home. We can come up with a custom designed protection system for your home and family. We can get it installed in under a day, and have everything ready for use prior to move in.
Moving is an exciting yet hectic experience. Don’t allow your stuff to be stolen during that time.
Moving day can be hectic enough. Don’t add to the chaos by allowing your stuff to be stolen. Make sure home security is your first priority during a house move.
