Catastrophe can happen in an instant. You are worth more than you think!

Each inventory is unique.  The length of time and cost are based upon the size and scope of the project. One client may have a large property with minimal furnishings and collections.  Another client may have a smaller home with multiple collections and assets.

The inventory process begins with a consultation of your needs and goals. Based upon that discussion, I recommend options to meet your needs and budget.  Once a decision is made, a formal agreement is signed and the onsite inventory is scheduled.

The on-site inventory consists of a walk-through of your home defining not only the plan for the photography, but carefully listening to items of particular importance to you to capture all the details so your needs and expectations are fully met. Your belongings are treated with the utmost care and confidentiality.  During the inventory process your home is documented with you providing direction and information about your prized possessions.  At the end of the session, you are given a USB flash drive that contains all of the photos taken, organized by room.

Your personal home inventory is created using state of the art, web-based software that is stored in the cloud with your personally chosen user name ad passwords.  Shortly thereafter, a visual record of each photo with its provenance, cost, receipts and appraisal value is available online.  Full inventories usually require a back and forth communication with the client to gather any uncollected information at the time of the onsite.  An Excel spreadsheet is provided to the client to assist with the information gathering.

This record of your assets is useful in identifying if you are adequately insured, a backup to insurance claims, helpful in creating your estate plan, divorce settlement and home remodeling records.
