How to Begin a Home Inventory

Many homeowners don’t get this far, but a crucial step in making sure that you are adequately covered by your homeowners insurance plan is to prepare a home inventory.  One reason this step is skipped is because preparing one is a huge task, and many people feel confused or overwhelmed as to where to start, and how much detail to give.  Some good advice is to start with groups.  For example – you’ll want to document contents of your closet.  You may start with clothing, then shoes, and perhaps personal items.  And instead of just listing pants, you’ll want name, description and quantity.  If applicable, such as with appliances, you’ll want to list serial numbers, models and brands.  A home inventory is definitely not a small project, but should you need to submit a claim, you’ll be so glad you handled it.
