9) Forget to Tell Anyone
Even if you decide on a whim to get away for just a long weekend it’s a good idea to have someone you know, and trust keep an eye on your place. Hopefully you have a trustworthy neighbor who can keep an eye on your sacred dwelling while you are away. If a criminal is casing your house they could see a pattern of someone just stopping by to check on the house. However, a nosy neighbor is better than a guard dog because they can call you and the police if they spot something sketchy going on while you’re not home. Another benefit of a trustworthy neighbor is that they may have a direct line of sight to the most vulnerable parts of your home. Make sure whoever is watching your place can reach you if need be.
