Renters face numerous obstacles that are much different from the ones homeowners face. Between living among other tenants, typically more traffic-areas, maintenance workers and delivery personnel, it’s a lifestyle with a lot of hustle and bustle. And any given day, something unexpected can happen. What isn’t unique to just renters is the likelihood of a home invasion. Home intruders don’t care whether you rent or you own your property; they have one thing in mind and that’s to see and take what interests them.

Today, there are nearly 40,000,000 renters across the United States—that’s almost about 37% of all U.S. households. Those numbers are expected to only grow over the next few years by .67%. Now here’s something really shocking: every single day, 4,457 homes are burglarized. And just one invasion will cost the average renter approximately $1,725. So not only is a home invasion devastating emotionally—it’s expensive!

So when do most home invasions occur? 97% happen when no one is at home. The fact that apartment complexes, townhomes and condos have such a populous and active community makes it harder to watch for potential crimes. High traffic areas create opportune locations for intruders to scout and target. If you don’t have a home security system, you are 300% more likely to be broken into. While the police would be contacted and survey the scene, they only close an average of 13% of all burglary cases.
