As social distancing and remaining indoors continue to be the most effective ways of reducing the spread of COVID-19, there is also the looming arrival of hurricane season. One effective thing you can do to pass the time and prepare in advance is by doing a home inventory. At its simplest, it’s a collection of your possessions and their monetary value. You can even jot down everything on a notebook if you prefer to keep it simple.
Having a home inventory will put you in a better position to figure out how much insurance you’ll need. Often, people purchase a policy only to realize that is insufficient to cover some of their most prized possessions.
If you keep things in an attic, chances are there may be items you’ve completely forgotten about. With a home inventory, it is incredibly simple to file a claim should your home sustain damage. You’ll know exactly what you own and it will dramatically expedite the claims process.
