iHomeButler takes the sweat out of documenting possessions

iHomeButler is a home maintenance notification service that interactively assists homeowners with managing the upkeep for their property, keeping track of valuables, and finding appliance manuals.

iHomeButler is a useful app that allows you to keep a record of valuable for insurance purposes, wherein users can take photos of all household items, upload, and store them securely in your iHomeButler account in case it is needed for insurance or inventory purposes.

This is a great option for both homeowners and renters as it logs serial numbers, descriptions and photos of your items, streamlining what is typically a complex and time consuming process. Bruce Ives, CEO of iHomeButler writes, “another high cost home problem that can be prevented is not documenting valuables, in case of an emergency. The new features, available in the app, are another way iHomeButler is working with homeowners to alleviate these common issues.”

More than just record keeping

The app does more than just keep a record of your valuables though, it also give you access to appliance manuals, and allows you to receive customized home maintenance reminders on a quarterly basis. For example, it lets you know when it is time to replace batteries in smoke detectors, clean the gutters, inspect for termites, and check the fireplace, to name a few. Also, when these reminders pop up, you can choose to tap “Get a Bid” and the app will send you bids from local businesses as to how much this service would cost.

The ability to take photos, videos, and notes of valuable assets, as well as, maintaining a record for insurance purposes, is available only through the mobile app. And currently, iHomeButler mobile app is only available for iOS devices (iOS 5.0 or later, optimized for iPhone 5), in the iTunes App Store ($1.99). But anyone can access the web site, currently it is free, but it does offer three different levels, so it appears it will cost according to what level of service you use, and there is also a section on the web site for real estate professionals to tailor it to their specific needs.

Although designed for homeowners, there is no reason a business couldn’t use the app to document office possessions for insurance and get the same maintenance alerts for items not covered by building maintenance.
