In two of the burglaries the thieves got in through insecure upstairs windows.
The thieves stole cash and small items.
Sergeant Dave Cleaver, team leader for the Thurncourt Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "It is very worrying to have this number of burglaries in one part of the city in such a short space of time. Officers are carrying out inquiries in the area this morning, exploring any forensic opportunities and speaking with neighbours. Foot patrols in the area will also be increased to offer reassurance to residents.
"I urge residents to review their home security. Please ensure that all windows and doors are left secure every time you leave your home, even windows on the first floor."
