Much of your home's value is what's inside
Provided by Safeco Insurance
There's a popular saying that goes like this: "Home is where the heart is."
That saying rings true for many who find "home" a safe haven and a place to cherish, convene with
family and friends, raise children, cook meals, rest, retire and celebrate.
Most will agree a home is not just a pile of bricks and mortar. Rather, a true "home" comprises much
more, including everything inside it.
Some of the things inside your house that helps make it your home include your furniture and
appliances, clothing, sports equipment, and electronic goods. These items are considered personal
property - and it's really important to protect it all.
How do I protect what really makes my house a home?
Protecting the important stuff inside your home begins with an understanding of what you have. If
you're like many people, you may find your home contains much more personal property than you
To understand how much stuff you have, develop a careful inventory of your personal property
following these tips.
• Use a video camera to record and audibly describe items as you move through your home. If you
don't have access to a video camera, use a standard camera or phone camera.
• Whether you use still photos or video to develop your inventory, include brand names and
descriptions where possible, especially on high-cost items.
• Keep any and all receipts on high-dollar purchases. Keep these receipts filed together with any
instruction booklets, warranties, etc. that accompany the items.
• Store your video or photo inventory offsite or back it up with an additional drive.
• When you make new purchases, be sure to add them to your inventory.
