If you are considering selling your home now or in the future, you may be looking at ways to increase the value of your property. One way is through home security. Intruder alarms increase the value of your home in more ways than one.
Actual Property Value Increase
Intruder alarms are growing in popularity. Many homeowners will pay more for a home that has an alarm system installed. Just like a driveway, conservatory or loft conversion can add value to your property, so can a home security system. If you have had the intruder alarm installed, all the new homeowner needs to do is call the security company with their contact details. You have saved them the hassle, time and cost of having a new alarm system installed. Homeowners are willing to pay more for this convenience.
Perceived Property value Increase
Intruder alarms are installed to protect and home, the family and the belongings within the home. Some homebuyers will look at the price of an alarm system and see the added monetary value it brings the overall value of the property. Many home buyers will also consider the additional benefits that a home security system offers the property. The safety, security and peace of mind the intruder alarm offers will often be enough to increase the perceived value of the home.
Home Insurance Decrease
Some homeowners will see the discount in the home insurance, due to having an intruder alarm installed, as an added value to the property. While burglar alarms prevent burglary, the installation also reduces home insurance premiums. This is because the home is statistically less likely to be broken into. The alarm works as a deterrent to opportunistic thieves. In some cases, your home insurance premium can be reduced by as much as 20% just by having a working burglar alarm in place.
