Are there \'talking marks\' around words that people say? When I read my writing, do I have a comma or a full stop when I pause? Is it neatly written? The next two deal with helping to make the reading of your writing more interesting and meaningful. Do I have sentences that begin with \'And\', \'Then\' or \'But\'? These words did not improve your writing. Do I have interesting sentence beginnings? Have you used phrases containing adjectives and adverbs to help add interest to your writing?
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.
