When deciding to retain or upgrade insurance for your home, one of the most important things you can have is an accurate home inventory checklist. Why is this important? With a home inventory, you can see everything that you own in one place which makes it easier in the event you need to use your homeowners insurance policy. There’s nothing worse than having insurance, something happens and you realize you didn’t have enough insurance to cover your items. It’s very easy to create your own home inventory listing. There are a few apps on the market that can assist, or you can do it the old-fashioned way. If that’s your choice, here are a few tips to get you going:
- Use a legal pad – this will allow you more room to write.
- Start room by room – this will allow you to inventory based on room, which could make it a lot easier.
- Write it all down – don’t leave anything out. You can weed through the list later.
- Take pictures – pictures tell a thousand words and gives you physical proof.
It’s as easy as that! For more information on what to include contact the Steve Wilk Insurance Agency.
