How do you keep a house ready to show at any time while still living in it.  

Here are some ideas to keep your house show-ready with as little stress as possible:

1. Lock any rooms that you can do without.

The best way to keep a room show-ready is to just not use it. This is pretty easy for adults, but if you have kids it can be hard remembering that they are not allowed to use the hall bath.
