Having a home inventory will expedite the process of insurance claims in the event of theft, damage or loss. It is essential to have a home inventory list before a crisis occurs, because after something has been stolen or destroyed, the task may be impossible. Here are some tips to help you create a home inventory.

How Do I Create a Home Inventory?

Creating a home inventory is very simple. All you need to do is make a list of your expensive possessions and their value. It is a good idea to have a picture of each image as well so you will have a visual tool in the case of an emergency. Write down the item description, including the make, model and serial number is necessary, and also the date you purchased the item.

There are some apps you can download on your smart phone that allow you to create a home inventory in a few easy steps. You can snap a photo, jot down the item description and the information will be stored on the app.

What Items Belong on the List?

Antiques, jewelry, art, collectibles and electronic equipment are the most common items on a home inventory list. Other items include musical instruments, furniture and expensive home décor items. When making your list, think about what items in your home are the most expensive, and go from there. You can also check with your insurance company and inquire about what items are covered under your existing policy. This will help you form your list, and you will be aware of what is covered and what is not.
