Need another reason to sell your home? Home sales gains are the highest in a decade, according to the National Association of Realtors.

For the third month in a row, home sales are on the rise in all major regional areas on the east coast of the country, like Palm Beach County.

Home sales increased 5.6% last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.81 million. Sales now are 3.8% higher than a year ago and in the strongest place since December 2006.

Certain styles can make your home look older even if it's a new house. Some quick and easy updating before putting you home on the market will make a big difference to buyers. Here are the styles that make your listing look dated according to the National Association of Realtors:

2. Animal prints. At some time, someone somewhere came up with the idea that leopard and tiger prints on chairs and couches made them look more expensive. It's actually a big turn-off to home buyers if you're selling…
