Homebuyer Moving, Security and Insurance Tips

It’s an exciting and stressful time to move into a new home. A fresh new start in a place that allows you additional space for your family. While exciting, there’s a lot you need to consider such as your home security, unpacking, adjusting to the area as well as home insurance.

While many of us have had to deal with renter’s insurance in the past, owning a home often means you need to find proper home insurance. While no one wants to have an accident in their home, such as a fire or break in, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared for an incident. stresses several important factors to consider when shopping for home insurance for your new dwelling. The company recommends specifically shopping around and paying close attention to the rates, deductibles and coverage options of a minimum of two to three companies. You do not want to short yourself when it comes to adequate coverage for your home. Did you know that it’s possible to view a report of your new home’s previous claim’s report online? This is another report you may want to look at in order to determine what kind of coverage you may need on your home.

Another factor to consider when you move into your new home is home security. The choice of a home security system is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. By adding a security system to your home, you can actually reduce the cost of your insurance while also providing yourself some peace of mind. If you purchased a home with a security system, it’s important to decide whether or not you would like to activate the system that’s already installed or choose a new company. You also have the potential of updating the current system to a more advanced system. Maybe you’d like to take that old ADT system and update it with the ADT Pulse? As we discussed in a previous post, the Pulse system allows you to control various aspects of your home. also recommends simple steps that can be taken such as changing the batteries in your alarms and smoke detection units as well as changing the locks on any doors.

Protect Your Home with Proper Landscaping

Spring is the ideal time of year to refresh your home both inside and out. states that an easy way to increase your curb appeal is to invest some money in upgrades. Did you know that making improvements to the exterior of your home can do more than increase your curb appeal? It can improve your home security!

Tip #1
When it comes to landscaping additions, there are many different options to consider. If you’re adding plants to your outdoor decor, you’ll first want to consider the overall height and distance of the plants from your home’s exterior. If plants are too tall or too wide, they can easily provide a hiding place for potential intruders. If plants are too high, a thief can take their time without worry about being seen while they work to break into your home. If you already have shrubbery around your home, it’s important to stay vigilant in trimming them down so they do not become overgrown.

Tip #2
If you’re already working on improvements to the exterior of your home, you may want to consider adding some additional external lighting. Similar to the problems that can arise from having tall trees which can block windows, lack of light can cause problems in and around your home. Studies show that properly placing lighting can reduce the chances of an intrusion. That’s because exterior lighting can act as a spotlight for thieves, attempting to break into your home. A study provided by Florida Atlantic University stated that if exterior lights are angled too high, it may create a dark hiding place for potential thieves while they take their time to carefully open up windows or doors. It’s important to make sure your lights are angled to illuminate possible entries into your home and create an unwanted spotlight for thieves.

Home Security Fire Preparedness Tips

The transition from winter to spring can bring dry weather which makes homes more susceptible to home fires. Recent events such as the massive blaze in Kansas City that damaged over 20 different homes after a fire broke out on a construction site, underscore the importance of fire preparedness. Between 2010-2014, fire departments across the nation responded to over 350,000 different home fires per year. On average, these home fires caused over $6.7 billion direct damage, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

The NFPA warns that the ability for homeowners to receive advance notice of a fire from smoke alarms and make plans ahead of time can make all the difference. The association claims that home fires can spread rapidly, leaving occupants with as little as one to two minutes to escape.

Tip #1 – Install a smoke detection system.
It’s important to install smoke alarms in every bedroom and level of the house. When you install these units, it’s worth connecting the devices to a central system such as our monitored home security system. If one of these devices were to be set off by an emergency, an ADT monitoring agent would be able to alert the authorities while checking on your safety.

Tip #2 – Make a plan.
A fire can happen quickly and make you anxious and unsure of what to do. By making a plan on where to go in case of a fire, homeowners can help protect themselves and their families. Discuss a plan with every member of your family as to how to get out of the house and where to meet outside in case of a fire incident. Once you make a plan that everyone understands and is comfortable with, practice it.

Tip #3 – Purchase additional supplies.
There are several important items that can help you in the event of a fire. A foldable fire ladder can help you escape your home if the stairs have been cut off by fallen debris or too much heat. These ladders are generally made from aluminum and function similarly to a boat ladder. They’re easily folded up and stored in a bedroom and hook onto a window ledge, allowing you and your family to simply drop down to safety. The second item that can help slow the spread of fire is a home fire extinguisher. Many times a small fire can be stopped or slowed by a fire extinguisher for relatively little money.
