About a month ago I had just completed an Accents Virtual Tour for my mother as a sample 360 Tour for friends and Real Estate Agents. My mother had just purchased a condo that was totally renovated and had lived there less than six months. The home inventory virtual tour did not take too long and was very good practice for me. About two weeks ago she returned home from work around 11:00 p.m. and opened her front door to six inches of standing and running water throughout her new renovated condo. Needless to say she was frantic and upset and called the fire department. They came and shut the water valve off. Around 12:00 midnight, a water restoration company arrived and started extracting all the water.
They set up about 20 fans and humidifiers to extract any moisture and remaining water. After 5 days of running fans for 24 hours, all the flooring and baseboards had to be torn out and furniture had to be moved into a pod. Needless to say, the condo was gutted out. The cause of the water damage was a water hose that busted on the washing machine. She didn’t have the washer running when she was at work. A total fluke accident.
Lesson here is make sure you have enough home owners’ coverage for accidents like this AND be sure that you have a virtual tour done of your home’s contents. In this case my mother was lucky enough that I had JUST done one a few weeks earlier. Remember, this can happen anytime and spending a couple hundred dollars on having an insurance virtual tour or (Home Inventory Tour) done is money very well spent.
