Hi Home Inventory Professionals
If you are from the home industry profession and you saw my note on the message board, glad you came to check out my blog.
For those of you who have been following my ride, I will soon be opening a Home Inventory business.
Here's why I'm going to do this: After seeing all of the devastation in New Orleans and then experiencing the record storms in the Seattle area this last year, I realized I could help people minimize their losses through a good home inventory. It can't replace your home or your personal memories, but it can help you replace those costly items that insurance can only cover for a fraction of their value without proof. Trying to remember what you had when you are walking away from a devastated home is too late. Rely on the reports from home inventory professionals at a time when your memory might not be it's best.
I did an inventory for myself before my ride, just in case something happened to me. Now when I look at it, I see that it was not at all what it should have been. Most people doing their own inventory - if they can find the time - will probably not be aware of all that they should do. So why not let a professional do it for you. I see that the recovery on only one item can more than pay for the cost of a good inventory! The inventory can also be used for estate planning, asset verification, loss due to theft...it's just a very valuable tool
I will post my new biz site when it is ready - which should be soon. I'm still doing many things related to the ride.
Let me know if you have any questions on home inventories and why to have one.
Those of you who are the new home inventory industry professionals - good for you! I have found it to be a wonderful, sharing community!
