Estate Planning Series* (1 of 7): Create an Inventory

You may not think you have enough "stuff” to justify estate planning (or maybe you are overwhelmed by the amount of “stuff” you have, and just don't want to deal with it). Regardless of the situation, creating an inventory is a great way to get an idea of what your tangible and intangible assets include.

Tangible assets are things that can be touched, and may include:

  • Real Estate (homes, building, land)

  • Vehicles (Cars, motorcycles, recreational vehicles—yes, even boats)!

  • Collectibles (art, trading cards antiques, coins, etc.)

  • Other personal possessions

Intangible assets may include:

  • Bank accounts, and certificates of deposit

  • Stocks, bonds, mutual funds

  • Retirement plans (ie: 401k, IRAs, pensions, etc)

  • Life insurance Policies

  • Ownership in a business

  • Health Saving accounts

You’ll also want to take into account and note any liabilities you have, such as mortgages, 

liens, lines of credit, or any other debts you still owe on.
