If a Natural Disaster were to Strike Today, Would you be Prepared?

The saying “Expect the best. Prepare for the worst.” should hold especially true when it comes to a natural disaster. If you do live in a place where a natural disaster strikes more often than you would like, you probably have an emergency plan in place. The problem? That emergency plan most likely only focuses on your safety and how to survive. What a lot of people fail to take into consideration is what it’s like to try to start over again when they lose their entire house and everything in it. For example, could you list out all of the items in your home and how much they are worth off the top of your head? You would surely forget items that could end up costing you a lot of money in the end.

HomeZada’s home inventory feature protects you from that exact problem. It gives you a way to easily document all of the possessions in your home and securely store them online. The time that it takes to inventory everything in your house is minuscule compared to the amount of time it could take trying to make that list once your house is gone in the event of a natural disaster and trying to prove that you did, in fact, have all of that stuff in your house to the insurance company. We often advise our clients to take it one room at a time and continue to make small progress instead of trying to do it all at once unless you have the time.

Just take a look at this infographic that highlights just how prevalent a natural disaster really is and the impact it has on your home and life.
