What are checklists? A checklist is simply a simple set of instructions on how to do something within your niche. This is a simplified outline of the steps involved to get from a starting point to and ending point for some topic. Checklists can come in any shape and size. Common checklists might include 10 steps to changing a flat tire\", or \ൺ steps to building your dream home\". Think of a checklist as a recipe to follow, where your reader can start on step one and follow all steps to accomplish some goal.
The checklist should be in writing. If some representing themselves as a home watch company cannot produce a written checklist, save your time and money. These are people who will \'work from memory\' to accomplish what they do. How can they show accomplishment of each item? Just ask them! Without a written checklist you have no idea what was actually done. They may have run through the property and ensured there were no fires, and left. Without a written checklist, you have no idea. A good company will keep the checklist for reference in case they believe there may be a problem in the future.
