Criminals are more likely to target a home if they believe that they will get high rewards for their “investment”. This is to say, they will consider the difficulty of breaking into a property alongside the value of the goods that they expect to get away with. This is a risk-reward choice for the criminals. And the type of criminals that target wealthy homes, come prepared and ready to use violence if it means they get what they came for.
A burglar will be most likely to target a house where they know that occupant has high value goods and if they think that it will be easy to get in and out of the house without being caught. Although most thieves assume that houses belonging to wealthy people will offer a higher reward, affluent people can seek to offset the risk of being targeted by increasing the difficulty level for people who are trying to break in.
