If a catastrophe was to strike your home, would you be able to remember all the possessions you’ve accumulated over the years? Probably not. In the event of a loss, the burden of proof of what you owned is on you. An inventory of your personal belongings not only provides proof, but allows you to judge the adequacy of your present coverage (do you have enough?) and helps ensure a faster settlement of any claims.
There are many ways to create an inventory of your belongings. You can keep a written log of your items, take pictures of your items, or take a video. A video is probably the easiest way to take a quick inventory because you can open closets and drawers and scan all the contents at once, describing them as you record.
Here are some tips to help in creating your home inventory.
