Do you own rental properties in the Detroit area or elsewhere in the United States?
Like most owners you probably are concerned about keeping those properties safe, that’s why in this article we will provide you with our best tips for how to keep your rental property safe in 2019.
Regardless if your rental property is a single-family home, condo, townhome, or apartments, you should focus on keeping the main entrance to your rental property safe.
You can do this by installing a new, metal or wood front door, double-cylinder deadbolt, or if it’s an apartment building you should install key fob readers so all residents will be required to use their key fobs to enter the building.
Another way to keep your building safe is to encourage tenants to use door jammers inside of their homes just so they have that added layer of protection inside the home, and you should also change the locks on your rental every time you have a tenant move out as well.
Regardless of the age of your rental, you should always check window security because windows that don’t have locks on the inside of them will entice criminals to break in while those rentals with locks on the inside of the windows will deter thieves from considering breaking into a rental property.
Last of all, but most important, you should improve the exterior lightning on your rental property. This means installing motion sensor lightening in the parking areas to your rental, and security lightening near the front entrance just so your tenants always feel safe when they come or go.
