Home Inventory 101
A home inventory provides homeowners with confidence that they will be able to handle any disaster with ease. If you have been putting off making a home inventory all this time, it is time to buckle down so that you and your personal belongings can be adequately protected. Keep these home inventory tips in mind:
- Wondering what to include in your home inventory? EVERYTHING. Take a walk through each room of your house and list every single thing you see.
- Make sure to collect receipts whenever possible and take pictures and video evidence of all valuable and big ticket items.
- To ensure that you are prepared no matter what happens, you should have both a digital home inventory and a hard copy home inventory.
- Most importantly, be sure to add any big purchases to your home inventory as soon as you bring home the prize, as this will ensure that your valuables are always protected. Otherwise, set a date each year where you update your home inventory to ensure adequate coverage.
