If you are a homeowner, you might want to consider creating a home inventory list in the event of an unfortunate incident. It is always a good idea to have a complete list kept in a safe and secure place. As you know, home emergencies can happen at the most inconvenient of times. Any type of home damage can have a huge financial impact on your life. It’s important to be fully prepared for unexpected events such as a home fire or flood.

In the event of a disaster, it is likely your insurance company will request information such as a list of damaged items, as well as the value of those items. This is just some of the necessary information required for you to be reimbursed for your losses. As you create a list of your home’s inventory, we suggest keeping a few things in mind. Reach out to your insurance company to determine the best options to ensure your property is protected. Take photos of your home’s inventory (inside and out) to speed up the process when accounting for the items when emergencies strike. When creating your list, make sure to say organized and tailor it in a way that will be easy for you to understand. We also suggest keeping everything updated as your belongings may change over time.
