So here’s a handy tip I ran across the other day — it’s from my personal Short Sale Sherpa (and also one of my best friends on the planet) Shaun McCloskey…

It’s simple, sneaky stuff to help keep your vacant houses break-in free while you’re trying to rent or sell ’em.  It may not work on true professional thieves…but the reality is, most break-ins are from drug addicts, dumb punks and complete idiots…all of which are typically looking for low hanging fruit…

So after watching Shaun’s tip, my question is this: Wouldn’t having a camera obviously visible (real or fake) just tempt a would-be thief to simply take the camera and whatever else it might be connected to?

I mean, I’ve never tested this theory…up to now, I’ve only used the “Smile, You’re on Candid Camera” sign tactic.  But that’s my thought anyway.

What do you think?  And if you have any thief-staving tips of your own, please do share in the comments below…

PS…An alternative to the above would be to hire this little Asian girl to protect your house…clearly she can take care of business. 🙂
