My roommate left our back door unlocked and someone came in and took some electronics, DVDs and some loose change. It doesn’t look like they went all the way through the house, just the main level and whatever was sitting out. Are we more likely to be robbed again since they have already been in the house?
I’m not sure that there is anyway to answer this question with 100% certainty, but my gut feeling is that there is a decent chance the thieves could come back. They saw how easy it is to get in your home and how easy it was to get out. You said they didn’t take too much, so there is a chance that the scoped out the rest of the house with a plan to come back.
You need to take precautions. Make sure all doors and windows are always locked. Put an automatic timer on a few lights. And definitely consider a home security system.
