This post on Organizing Your Home Records is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by HomeZada. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. Any opinions expressed are my own.
Do you ever feel like there’s a ton of paperwork associated with a household?
If you own your own home, there’s paperwork specific to that financial transaction and things like property taxes as well as keeping track of maintenance. And, regardless of whether you own or rent, you have your belongings that you need to inventory so if something happens you can find what you own and how much it cost to purchase.
If your house is anything like mine, the papers have a tendency to be in more than one spot and not always easy to find. (Okay, maybe it’s just ME that has piles of things I mean to file, but never get around to doing.) Since signing up with HomeZada this past week, I am slowly putting the big things in to the system and hope to get a firmer handle on our assets.
HomeZada Features (Free and Premium)
Right now there are 2 levels of HomeZada. Essentials is free and the Premium account costs $59 per year.
Essentials allows you to maintain a home inventory, store property documents, find news and recommendations, list emergency contacts and access everything through mobile apps (iPhone, iPad, and Android.) Premium accounts build on those basic offerings with the addition of the ability to manage up to 3 properties, track home maintenance and home improvement projects, and track finances related to your home. The image below is of the dashboard for a premium account.
Organizing Your Home Records with HomeZada
As you can see from the features listed above, there are several aspects of organizing your home records that can be made easy and in a central location for you or anyone you designate for access. Beyond freeing up my brain from remembering some of the details, it is nice that I can access it all from anywhere I have an internet connection.
As I mentioned, I am slowly entering different possessions we own to get a more complete inventory of the house. The process is quite simple and I know that investing a little time right now will help my family in the long run.
Beyond purchase price, you can indicate what condition the item is in and even upload a photo of it. If there is a warranty on the item, you can indicate when it expires. This is a feature my sometimes tired (overworked) brain appreciates having at my finger tips.
