What REALLY are the odds of a burgler breaking in to your home?

Over 2,000,000 home burglaries are reported in the United States each year. Yes, you read that correctly. There are over 2 MILLION home burglaries in the U.S. each and every year. According to the FBI home burglaries are the most common threat to homeowners in the U.S. – a home is burglarized every 13 seconds. That’s about four burglaries a minute, 240 an hour and nearly 6,000 a day!

The saddest part about these statistics is that they can be cut drastically if more homeowners invested in a home security system. Only 17% of homes in the U.S. have a security system installed and homes without a security system are three times more likely to be victims of a home burglary than those that DO have a security system. Not only does having a home security system keep you and your family protected but it greatly reduces your chances of a home burglary.

Despite many beliefs home burglaries are most common during daylight hours – usually when people are at work or school. Home burglaries are also more frequent during the summer months especially July and August.
