Preparedness, not panic or fear, are the operative words.
I lost my house to careless people (a campfire on a windy day) in the Malibu Corral Fire in 2007. People need to prepare for the financial and insurance-related impacts of calamitous events including fires, hurricanes, explosions, earthquakes, floods, thefts, and other unpredictable emergencies.
In hind sight, I wish I had done a home inventory!
Putting together a home inventory may not sound like the most exciting way to spend a few hours, but in the event of a major loss, like a fire, flood, or theft, it may be one of the best things you could have done to save yourself time, money and headaches during the claims process.
