How detailed should a home inventory be?

Ideally, your home inventory should catalog all of your belongings, including furniture, appliances, electronics, jewelry, and artwork. The more detail you can provide (e.g., make, model number, serial number), the easier it will be for your insurance company to process your claim.

The quickest and best way to quickly make a home inventory is to take pictures of your belongings for further documentation. For higher price items like TV’s or Refrigerators, take a picture of the serial numbers and model number to make sure you receive the correct value at the time of a claim.
