Secondly, the checklist should be comprehensive. Many prospective home watchers will have a simple list. Unless you live in an extremely simple condo with no bathroom, that won\'t work. It should include all parts of every system. The plumbing system needs to be broken down to toilets, sinks, drains, and supply lines as well as water heaters. The air conditioning system checks must include temperature checks, humidity recording, filter checks as well as output temperature measurements. If you are presented with a simple \'toilets, air conditioning, sprinklers\' checklist, go elsewhere and save yourself future heartache and headaches.
Second on the list _ A budget is the next thing to think about. Is money no object or will it be important to get the most out of every dollar. In either case you can present a lovely party for the mom to be. If more than one person is helping to pay for the shower get together and have an honest discussion about what you can afford. If one person has less money to contribute maybe they can offer their house as the place to hold the party. A lot is involved in getting ones home in top shape for entertaining. Discuss ways to stay in budget. Does someone know where to get a good discount on something that is needed? Do you enjoy crafting or baking? How can your skills contribute? When the budget is finalized check it off the list.
