Selling Your Vacant Home


Thieves target vacant homes, and criminals may be looking through the MLS or other online property sites to find homes that are easy to access.  According to a RCMP report, these $1.5 million homes were listed  with photos clearly showing the property was vacant. 


To help prevent theft:


* Take photos of homes before the furniture is removed or stage the rooms with borrowed or rented pieces.

* Ask neighbours to report any suspicious activity such as trucks and people, at the home.  

*Let the neighbours know if the property has been sold, and when the new neighbours will be moving in.

*Make sure that the home doesnt' look vacant or abandoned to passers by.

*Have lights on, and semblance of activity with a timer for lights to go on at different parts of the house.
