by Dolores Farmer Most people know that it’s important to have a “home inventory,” to lessen your chances of a disagreement with your insurance company about replacement of personal property under your homeowner’s insurance policy. If the thought of completing an inventory is daunting, read on.
Easy Home Inventory
What you might not know is that there’s a free app designed to assist you in making that inventory, available for both iPhone and Android. It’s provided by the Insurance Information Institute, and is called “IIIinventory.” The easiest way to locate the App is to navigate to https://www.knowyourstuff.org, and scan the QR Code they provide in the App’s section. It will take you to the download page. You’ll need a free account on the website, because the App syncs the inventory made with your phone to the main website. The app guides you through entering each item, room by room, and you can take photos as you go.
With any luck, you’ll never need the home inventory, but it’s a good thing to do. It’s the type of project that nobody likes to take on, but everyone is happy to have it when they need it.
