Property managers: Crime prevention tips

In an ideal world, property managers would be able to run their properties without the risk of crime. Unfortunately, it is necessary for them to take steps to prevent crimes from happening on their property.

Although all crime cannot be prevented, property managers are capable of cutting down on the magnitude and quantity of incidents that happen on their watch.

For instance, providing tenants with high-wattage lighting system around the property would provide criminals with very few options for performing covert deeds. Furthermore, having a video-based security system could deter potential thieves who don't want to be caught on tape.

In the interest of providing fewer places to hide, lowering fences and keeping the nearby foliage carefully trimmed can also help landlords keep trouble away from their tenants.

Rental property managers who increase their security measures can then describe them in Craigslist rental postings as an attraction for consumers.
