A home inventory printable will make the whole process of cataloging your possessions much easier. This home inventory packet has over 30 pages and will cover every single area of possessions.
WHAT IS A HOME INVENTORY?
A home inventory is a detailed breakdown of everything you own within your home.
The household inventory comes in very handy in the event your home is damaged or destroyed in a fire, tornado, hurricane, earthquake or other natural disasters. It will also help if you have a home burglary.
If you are able to present a detailed home inventory to your insurance adjuster or the police it will make the process of claims much simpler.
Remember that if you need a home inventory something serious has occurred and it will be difficult to remember everything you owned during a stressful situation.
It is important to do a home inventory for peace of mind.
HOW TO DO A HOME INVENTORY
Completing a home inventory is simple but may take a little time.
The first step is to print off this home inventory printable packet (scroll down to print).
The next step is to do a slow walk through of your home room by room. Use the printable inventory sheets to list out your belongings.
There is room on the sheet to list make and model or serial number for items that have a make and model or serial number.
If you have receipts for these items they can be attached to the document. Take pictures or videos as you walk through and be sure to store the video and photos in the cloud so you can access them from anywhere.
Once you are done the household inventory needs to be stored in a fireproof safe or offsite in a safety deposit box.
WHAT SHOULD I DOCUMENT IN THE HOUSEHOLD INVENTORY?
A common question is what should I document in the inventory?
Do small items count? Should I only document expensive items?
Remember that if you had to start completely over and purchase every single item you currently own, how much money that would cost. Even small items add up when you are looking at replacing the items.
The printable packet has a list of suggestions for items that should probably be documented.
Here is a quick overview of items you will want to include in your inventory:
- Entertainment items like books, games, movies
- Silver service
- Office supplies
- Items in storage
- Holiday decor
- Gardening supplies
- Deck furniture
- Hobby collections like sports cards, thimbles, etc.
