Keeping your Dallas home for sale in good condition, clean, organized and de-cluttered gives you an advantage during your home selling process. When all items are already ready, you need just couple minutes to leave your home for showings.

Here are some home selling tips to make your Dallas home ready for showings.

* LIGHTING: Keep all shades and draperies open even the daylight hours. Change all burned out light bulbs with the maximum light producing bulbs. Keep all lights turn on throughout the house before home showings. Possible home buyers do not know your home, and where your light switch is, keeping them open helps home buyers to focus on your home rather than searching for the switch in every room.

* STORAGE: All clothing, shoes, hats, accessories, tools, papers, magazines, books and personal items not contributing to the decor of the room should be stored in closets or dressers. All closets should be organized, and clean. All unneeded or unused items should be discarded. Display your storage and utility space by removing all unnecessary things in attic, basement, closets and garage.

* KITCHEN: Kitchen counters should be clean and free of any articles not contributing to the decor of the room. All magazines, books, ashtrays, food, bottles, containers, boxes, cans, toys, hobby accessories, tools, dishes, cookware, etc. should be stored in the proper cupboards or closets or storage areas.

* WINDOWS: Keep all windows spotlessly clean inside and out. All window sills, as well as any space between the window and storm window should be spotlessly clean and free of any flaking or loose paint. All windows should be in good repair with no cracks. Screens should be clean and in good condition, free of rust and holes. Any paint on glass should be removed with a razor blade prior to cleaning.

* FIXTURES: All bathroom, kitchen fixtures and counters should be sparkling clean. Polish chrome faucets and handles in the tub and sinks. All sinks, tubs, toilets and counters should be clean and shiny.

* FLOORS: Keep all flooring clean, mopped and waxed if necessary. All carpeting should be very clean regardless of its age. If the carpeting has not been steam cleaned for more than two years, now is the time to do it.

* DOORS: All doors should be free of scotch tape, posters, decals, or stickers. All door handles should be clean and in good shape. Matching door handles might be a good idea in the entire home.

* CERAMIC TILE: All joints between tiles should be clean. Use DAP bathroom tile sealer to reseal the joint between bathtub, wall and floor.

* WALLS: All walls should be clean and free of gouges, scratches, smudges, scotch tape, posters, thumbtacks, etc. Walls should only have couple decorative items. Posters and paper pictures taped to walls should be removed with all evidence of the tape markings removed.

* ODOR: Nothing smells better than fresh air. On warm days, have your windows open and shades up. Make your home feel and smell bright, fresh and clean, what it really means to you is a faster sale. KEY POINT: Make very sure that there are absolutely no pet odors.

* OUTSIDE: Trim all shrubs. Pull all weeds. Flowers planted. Leaves raked. Keep your lawn green. Pick up and discard or store all implements, materials and debris that are not part of the lawn decor. All windows washed. Garage should be swept, neat and tidy.
