Why Create a Home Inventory?
A Personal Insurance Update
Your homeowners insurance is designed to repair or replace any personal property that was damaged or destroyed because of as coverage loss. However, the coverage is only as good as your ability to remember what was damaged or lost. If you had a large loss, it might be difficult to remember every item in your home. We have found that in some cases the homeowner actually undervalued what was lost. Our goal is to help you get what is due to you under the terms of the homeowner’s insurance policy. Nothing more or nothing less.
