(Nick) Your value of your home inventory is likely much higher than you expect. When moving across the country, i had 3 moving companies provide estimates of the move. All 3 firms were within $5,000 of one another when it came to my total valuation. Surprisingly, all 3 were many multiples higher than I expected. I had a TV (or maybe 3) a couch (or maybe 3), a desk (or maybe 2), a bike (nope…3). I had been reporting my contents value on my renters policy to be $20,000 when it was really > $75,000!!! I had never really done a proper inventory. It doesn’t take much to do one and Tony has a wonderfully easy plan for you to goal around in his book
