FBI statistics point out that a burglary occurs once every 30 seconds in our country. This translates to two burglaries every minute and more than 3,000 burglaries every single day. With these concerning numbers on the plate, it shouldn’t surprise you if you’ll be a burglary victim at some point in your life.
Another important thing that should worry you is the fact that approximately 70 percent of burglars are actually well-acquainted with the people they rob. Some burglars know more about you than you know about yourself. And, please, don’t assume that burglars are masked strangers in striped sweaters carrying a bag of swag that operate only at night.
Most of them will knock at your door to ask for directions, to mow your lawn, or to clean your gutters. If it’s not a familiar face, don’t answer. But what really makes a burglar set his eyes on your property? Well… according to security experts, there are many factors, so let’s find out why your house might be a burglary magnet.
