Creating a home inventory is as straightforward as it sounds. It is a detailed record of everything in your home, from top to bottom. If you bought it, it should be on the list! There are a few things you must include alongside your items to ensure a complete inventory. These include:
- Item description
- Serial number
- Purchase date
- Estimated Value

Then, choose “Add Item” (you will first be prompted to take a photo) and the app will take you to this screen. Here you can give details about your item such as where it’s located, it’s cost, as well as other important details.
As you can see you are viewing an item that we already added, a computer for $1500 dollars.
Once you have finished adding all of your items you may email yourself a report in the form of a .pdf document, as well as share your report with your agent:
Of course, yours will have many more items as well as details you have inputted.
Be sure to make note of any expensive items such as jewelry and collectibles. These valuables may need separate insurance.
There you go. Your items are now saved in the apps cloud. This means they are always safe, even if you lose or break your phone!
