According to WILX-TV 10, home sales are expected to reach an all decade high this year.  So if you're about to sell your home, Consumer reports has some thrifty tips that will help make your house seem like someone else's home.

Start in the rooms that are most important to buyers:  your kitchen and bath.  Realtors surveyed by Consumer Reports said the costliest mistake a seller can make is ignoring grime and clutter.  So clean these rooms up and clear the counters.

If you have an outdated bathroom, the money spent there on a small countertop or new flooring can boost your sale price by two to three percent.

Realtors surveyed by Consumer Reports agreed it doesn't pay to paint all your rooms.  Instead, just cover up bold colors and give your front door a coat of paint in a welcoming color.
