What’s a Home Inventory, Why You Need One and How to Do It
We’ll explain what a home inventory is and why you need one. A proper home inventory can save you time, money and needless headaches. If you have a fire, flood or other natural catastrophe, how can you prove to your insurance company what was lost or damaged? Many people that have had their homes ravaged by hurricanes, floods or forest fires have then suffered again trying to collect on their homeowners’ insurance. A proper home inventory may solve those issues. If you’re doing an estate plan, how do you minimize disagreements (or worse) among your heirs over who gets what jewelry, art or other tangible property? The answer again may be based in part on a well done home inventory.

What is the difference between a home inventory and a certified appraisal? When might one be better then the other?
