Creating a Home Inventory

How much insurance is enough to cover your home and possessions? Creating a home inventory will help you gauge how much coverage you need. It will also build a thorough record of your belongings in the event you need to make a claim. Our Personal Property Inventory form is a complete home inventory worksheet you can use to get started.

  • Note the approximate replacement value of each item, along with makes, models, serial numbers and other identifying marks.
  • Keep receipts for major items, if possible.
  • Draw up a list of all the items in each room and remember to update it as needed. You can also take photos or videos your belongings.
  • Store your inventory records in a safety deposit box or other secure location away from your home. This will simplify things should you need to file a claim.
