Home security systems can do a lot more for your home than simply minimize the chances of a burglary and help alert you when there is a fire (yes, some systems do that). Did you know that they can also help raise your property value?
The nasty business when it comes to home security is that you, as a customer, are also an investment to the insurance company. Whenever you take out a policy on your home due to damages incurred from, let’s say, a broken window or a kicked-in door – that’s money they have to pay back to cover the damages.
In some cases, depending on the provider, you could stand to receive a 20 percent discount on your insurance premiums just by having a system in place. Systems also jack up your property value at least in the eyes of the consumer.
What a prospective buyer sees when they look at a home with a security system is a home with a reputation. They see a home that is, statistically 60 percent safer than any other without a system and they want that home to be there’s.
Home security systems increase safety and overall quality of life – contributing to your home’s value and even saving you some money. There are lots of sites with information on this that dive into this in greater detail. Check out security sites, for example, and you’ll see for yourself.
