IMPROVE YOUR HOMES SAFETY TO MAKE IT MORE MARKETABLE

Homeowners know the value of reinforced doors with deadbolts or a comprehensive home security system. But there are many less obvious fixes to ensure your home is attractive to safety-conscious buyers in the future.

  1. Childproof your pool

There are several ways to protect children against the dangers of a pool. A pool gate is a stronger barrier to childproof your pool than a traditional cover. Any pool barrier or fence that is at least four feet high with a childproof gate lock can help prevent accidents.

  1. Update your detectors

Most people know they need to keep their smoke detectors with fresh batteries. But do you have enough detectors? Or the right ones?

  1. Take a closer look at your home’s landscaping

Landscaping can give your home curb appeal, but homeowners should be wary of shrubbery that puts their home at risk. Be aware of high trees that can damage your home during a storm. Keep trees regularly trimmed to reduce this risk.

  1. Work on your windows

Windows are one of the most common access points to a home for burglars. Keeping them safe and secure can be a boon for you living in the home and also for any future buyers.

For added security, beef up windows with locks that are visible to burglars. These pin locks aren’t expensive to install and can prove a powerful deterrent.
