6. Avoid Looking Affluent
Just as expensive clothing and jewelry can make you the target of muggers and/or angry rioters, the same goes for expensive cars and other items that may be unintentionally announcing your financial status out on the front lawn.
Remember that quick, at-a-glance perceptions are the force driving looters. Any conspicuous items of value (including highly fashionable landscaping, pavers, etc.) will make your home stand out. Expensive cars, even older models, will attract unwanted attention at the worst times.
