Do I really need a Home Inventory?

Insurance companies, law enforcement, and estate planners recommend a thorough inventory of your personal property – are your assets protected?

If you sit back and think about it I bet most would agree that having a comprehensive inventory of personal property is a really good idea. The problem is most people never get around to doing it – that’s where we come in.

Our company provides professional home inventory services designed to quickly and efficiently document and archive your personal or business property to ensure maximum compensation should a disaster happen to your home or business.

We specialize in comprehensive documentation of personal or business assets and digitally archiving the data for safe keeping.

The truth is you will never know just how important a detailed asset inventory is until you are put in a position where you will be required to list, from memory, all of your personal or business property that has been lost due to theft, fire, flood, tornado or even divorce. The task can be overwhelming and in many cases, you may forget almost as much as you are able to remember.

The problem with not having a detailed inventory is that you really won’t be able to recall, from memory, all of your belongings if and when disaster strikes. Are you going to be able to sit calmly and provide your insurance agent with a comprehensive list of property and valuables that you used to have in your possession along with receipt copies and an estimated value of each item?

After the fact can be a challenging time to reconstruct this information.


Top Reasons You Need a Detailed Property Inventory

Fire Damage

Each year fire damages more than 384,000 homes in America. Don’t get caught without an inventory.

Insurance Documentation

You buy insurance to protect your assets; doesn’t it make sense to have a documented inventory to support a claim?

Moving and Storage

Before hiring a moving company or placing property in storage, make sure you have a complete inventory record.

Theft or Loss

According to FBI statistics, a burglary occurs every 10 seconds. That’s over 2,000,000 homes annually.

Estate Planning

A detailed inventory can provide your executor with guidance on how to distribute your assets and property.

Prenuptial Agreements

A detailed inventory of pre-marital assets can help define non-marital property and limit future uncertainties.

Natural Disaster

Tornados, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters account for $43B in damage every year.

Divorce or Separation

A well-documented inventory of personal assets can streamline valuation and distribution of marital property.

Business Valuations

Creating an inventory of tangible business assets can assist in determining the valuation of a business.

Scott R.Insurance Agent

“We just lost our house to a fire in April, and we can’t stress enough the importance of an inventory, which we didn’t have. It’s been 4 months, and we will be wrangling with our insurance company for a long time yet. They really don’t care about you. We’ve been living in our leaky pool house garage because they won’t pay living expenses until they settle.”
