Taking a tally
A home inventory imparts peace of mind, and saves you money and time. Of course, in the case of disaster or other worst case scenario, having an inventory of your belongings is critical. But there are other scenarios in which a home inventory provides a much needed sense of order, for example, for purposes of estate planning, during a move, renovation or other disruption.
Taking the time to track your belongings helps ensure you know where each item is when downsizing, and can help track valuables. A home inventory can include all of your belongings, or just those with a certain dollar value, and provides helpful and important documentation.
