Chicago, IL (PressExposure) July 29, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Your home is probably in more danger of being broken into and you being robbed now than any other time of the year. During the summer, reports show an increase in home break-ins. Criminals, dependent on the seasonâs time of getting homeowners and their families out of town for a few weeks or months during the yearâwill take advantage of the good weather and empty homes. It also doesnât help that the current recession is seeing a rise in criminals who think they have no other way to earn an income rather than just take what they need or want.
One of the best ways to protect oneself and oneâs property from greedy criminals is purchasing home and contents insurance (as well as a really good home security system and some strong locks), according to a recently published article on InsuranceAgents.com. Home and contents insurance provides homeowners with the financial security of their home and their personal belongings without having to put a huge financial strain on their savings.
âReplacing your propertyâthat includes your home, your electronics, computers, TVs, carpets, furniture, appliances, your clothes, not to mention countless other itemsâout of pocket could financially break you,â warns the InsuranceAgents.com article, âHome and Contents Insurance: What It Covers, Why You Need It.â âMany people in that situation, lacking home and contents insurance coverage, would end up digging themselves into a hole of debt they would have no way of getting out of.â
This coverage not only protects homeowners from burglars, but also protects their property in case it is destroyed in a home fire, flood or other event that would destroy the property.
