If you have been having a hard time selling your home you may want to consider making some improvements to the home.

Some very good places to make improvements to the home are the landscaping. Curb appeal and first impressions are going to be important to a future home buyer. Also kitchen countertops and cabinets are great places to make improvements to your home.
