How to Build a Foolproof Inspection Checklist

We are big fans of checklists here at Thanks For Visiting. What better way to ensure that the basics always get handled consistently? In this episode, we share an inspector checklist detailing everything you need to do after the cleaning team does their work. 

Trust, but verify. That’s what we always say! Cleaning teams don’t have it easy. When they come into a property, their job is to turn things from upside down to rightside up. Occasionally, that might mean missing the forest for the trees, understandably! There are also maintenance tasks that we want to be more preventative about rather than reactive. 

Even if you’re doing the cleaning yourself, it’s important to put on your inspector hat. We know, it’s exhausting to try and remember everything you need to check, but that’s exactly where checklists come in handy!




It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Getaway Upstate.

We really want to highlight the digital real estate here! Be sure to check out their direct booking site… especially their blog! They have a lot of great information on their blog for potential guests: best restaurants, best wine shops, best local grocery stores, best local hikes, best local breakfast spots, etc!

We love how they have all of that valuable info on their site, and they also link to all the places where you can book and follow them online. You can book directly, but you can also book on AirBnB an VRBO. Most of all…. they have a place where you can sign up for their newsletter! Crucial!

All of this might seem overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it all at once. Try to improve your digital real estate a little bit each month, and if you don’t know what to do, Getaway Upstate is a superb example! Oh and… their space is gorgeous! How about that green accent wall!?

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!
