How Celebrating Your New Home Could be a Big Mistake!

How Celebrating Your New Home Could be a Big Mistake!

23 March 2021

We know what you’re thinking, you’ve just moved into your amazing new home (hopefully sold through us!), you want to pop open the champagne, take the obligatory New-Home selfie and tell all your friends and family. 

But did you know, you could be giving burglars their own set of keys, just by posting a photo?

Gone are the days of ski masks and makeshift credit card keys – burglars can now replicate your keys with just a photo and, if your selfie shows your front door and number, they don’t even need Google Maps to find your new home! 

If you want to avoid an unexpected housewarming visit, you can still celebrate the milestone safely. Just be careful to include just the top of your key and make sure that your door doesn’t give your exact location away. 

Now that you’re up to date on door safety, kick back, relax and enjoy your new home!
