The end of January is already on the horizon; have you taken a good look in and around your home yet? Just like you would go to a doctor every year to make sure your body is in good health, your home and your insurance policy deserve some attention to keep everything running in tip-top shape.
To begin with, examine your home inventory and make the necessary tweaks as needed. You may have purchased new high-end electronics since the last time. If no home inventory is in place, now is as good a time as any to get started. At any time, unanticipated events may occur, and you may find that once it’s time to file that insurance claim, the process will prove to be infinitely easier by having a list of what may have been lost.
When was the last time a home inspection was done? A leak or crack can slip by unnoticed yet the results of such a leak can prove extremely costly. For example, when is the last time you took a close look at the roof? Water may be quietly damaging the wood.
We have listed one here many times: pay close attention to the terms outlined in your insurance policy and see if it may be necessary to make changes. A lot can happen in a year, and you may find it necessary to up your coverage.
