You know the old saying about what sells a home: bathrooms and kitchens. In that case, as you prepare to sell your home, bear in mind that prospective buyers are always on the lookout for bathrooms that don’t only provide enough space and efficiency, but which are also stylish and on-trend.

So, buyers, now is the time to ask yourself: What bathroom is it you’re looking for and why?

And sellers? It’s time to start thinking about how your audience of potential buyers answered the question above. Because their response could just mean all the difference for the success of your sale.



Take a look at this beautiful tri-level townhome. A part of Chicago history, this gorgeous structure was formerly the Norwegian Consulate building. Now, it offers the best of boulevard living in the heart of Logan Square.

The home offers a distinct split layout with a private entrance. Entering the home, you're greeted by an open living, dining, and kitchen setup, with ample room to entertain and cook. The kitchen features maple cabinets and granite countertops, with refinished hardwood floors throughout. A powder room on the main floor provides convenience for all.

Head downstairs to find an ample family room, the master bedroom, and a generous marble bath. The washer and dryer are contained off the lower level family room. Above the main floor is a lofted second bedroom with full bath. This versatile space could also be used as an office, studio, or family room.

For millions of Americans, taxes can be a real pain – but getting that refund, when all is said and done, can be a sweet treat.

According to data from CNN and the IRS, roughly 80% of US taxpayers receive a refund, with the average federal refund clocking in around $3000. That’s a pretty significant chunk of change to have deposited into your account overnight – and lots of people have big dreams for that annual payout, whether it’s taking a vacation, saving up for a major purchase, or helping to pay off their debts.

Ultimately, the best use for your tax refund will come down to your unique personal and financial situation. With that said, one tried-and-true way to spend your refund is to put it into your home.

If you’re interested in how to best spend your refund on your current property, or invest in your next one, here are a few ideas worth considering:

Make Some Home Improvements

With a refund check in hand (or, let’s be honest, direct-deposited into your bank account), the possibilities can seem endless. For many people, this windfall is screaming to be put toward home improvement projects and upgrades, large and small.
