Creating a home inventory will make your life easier in the event something happens to your home and you need to file an insurance claim. The inventory is a comprehensive list of what items you have in your home. This helps you know what was there and helps us at AAIGOT Insurance Agency Inc in Houston, TX better help you in the event your items become damaged or stolen.
Steps for creating a home inventory
To create your inventory, first, determine how you want to organize the information. Consider using an app that can help you create an inventory for your home in Houston, TX. Check out the one offered by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). It’s free and will help simplify the process of creating your inventory. If you don’t want to use an app, you can make a spreadsheet or document.
Next, go through your home room by room and make note of what you own, big and small. Don’t forget to look inside drawers and closets.
It’s also helpful to take pictures of each item. If you know how much each item cost, when you bought it, and where you bought it, that information can be helpful as well. The more information you can add to your inventory, the more likely you will be compensated the right amount for your items. Having a detailed home inventory can also help you get paid faster if you need to make a claim.
