As we prefer our Guest Visits to be more about restaurant recommendations or the best ski runs we always do check-in inspections prior to a guest arrival. We go through the home with an extensive list to make sure that everything will be ready for them. We also turn on lights, turn up heat in the winter, check on the hot tub, and make sure all appliances are running properly.
We do this to prevent guests from having to call with incidental questions that interrupt their trip. We want their arrival and first night in the home to be as smooth as possible after a long day of travel. We don’t ever want a guest’s first impression of a home to be less than satisfactory.
