Home security was the topic this morning at an education seminar offered by the Kitchener-Waterloo Real Estate Board. Kitchener-Waterloo Realtors in attendance were provided with excellent information from Divisional Inspector Doug Sheppard of the Waterloo Region Police Service. He indicated most break-ins are committed by males under 25 and the 3 things they're typically looking for are cash, electronics and liquor. A Homeowner's and Tenant's Guide was supplied and attendees were urged to conduct a Home Security Self-Audit. The suggestions and observations it contains are designed to lower your chances of being a victim of crime.
We're very fortunate in Waterloo Region to live in a prosperous and safe community. Homeowners should spend a few minutes reviewing home security. For sellers, it's prudent to conduct this self-audit prior to selling. For buyers, take the information along on your home inspection to review. http://tinyurl.com/cbtztc
