When buying a property investment, safety is one of the key features that must be given importance. After all, who doesn’t want to protect both lives and assets? But as is with most things, it is always easier said than done. Don’t you fret though because we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves that may just make the chore a tad bit easier. Take a look.

    • Start with a property investment that’s safe to begin with. It pays to scrutinize an asset prior to buying it. For example, opt for a quiet and safe neighborhood. Choose an area with a low crime rate and one that does not suffer from frequent natural disasters and/or accidents.
    • Secure all windows and entryways. When you first move into a property investment, change all locks and be wary as to who you give your codes and keys to. Check if there are any faulty locks or risks to trespassing and if there are, act on them immediately. Never wait it out.
    • Change your furnace filter often. Two to three months is the most ideal. Not only will this ensure air quality inside your space but it should also help bring utility bills down while preventing risks of fire altogether.

  • Store your stuff properly. At first look, organization may only be a thing for putting everything in a system and adding visual cohesiveness but it does more than that. Providing for a proper place for things especially those that may be sharp or flammable will help ensure safety for everyone and even the property.
  • Never overload electrical outlets. Octopus wiring is a highway to a fire disaster. Make it a point to regularly check and inspect the property investment’s wiring system too. This should also be one of the key features to check on prior to purchasing and moving in.
  • Turn off the water during the winter. At least for those external taps, it would be a wise practice to turn them off so water doesn’t freeze within the pipes and snap. It’s going to be both costly and a mess if they do.
  • Add security features. Whether you’re out for work or vacation or you’re simply sound asleep in your property investment, security features will help keep everyone and everything safe. Alarms for example are one. Make sure to lock all windows and doors too and where budget allows, install a CCTV system.
