Pro Tip: use inexpensive lights and light timers to keep a vacant property secure

Occasionally I will list a vacant property, and my sellers will be jittery about the home's security during the time it is on the market. One quick and easy way to make a vacant home seem occupied is to install lights and on timers so that lights go on and off all night long. This gives the appearance that there is activity inside the house, and can be a strong deterrent for would-be troublemakers. These lights in the photos were about $7 and the timer devices were about $5 at a hardware store. A good investment!
