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.
Lastly, the checklist should be customized for your property. Just like in aviation, if you don't have a checklist for your specific property, you don't have a real checklist. Generic won't cut it. Do you have a second freezer? It should be documented. Multiple air conditioning units? Absolutely. Specialized lights, landscaping systems, plumbing systems or high_end vehicles need special checks and memory isn't what you want to rely on. If the service starts with a comprehensive checklist that is then tailored for your property, you are getting an expert.
