Why Rogers Park?

Located just south of Evanston, Rogers Park is a quiet community with a rich history, offering the best of suburban and city living in one lovely package. 

An extremely walkable neighborhood boasting a fair share of restaurants, easy access to Lake Michigan, and a thriving arts scene, Rogers Park is one of the most eclectic and charming neighborhoods in Chicago - and maybe even in the entire state! Part of the reason why? As the home of Loyola University and just a short commute away from Northwestern, Rogers Park is a haven for students and academics alike.

Why the West Loop?

Running along the western bank of the Chicago River, the West Loop is a vibrant neighborhood on the rise, full of great restaurants and nightlife.

Though not an official MLS neighborhood (we used the zip code 60608 to gather our data), the West Loop is typically considered to be bounded by Grand Avenue on the north, Ashland Avenue on the west, the Eisenhower Expressway on the south, and the Chicago River on the east. It is a part of the Near West Side, which puts it close to Little Italy, Greektown, and the United Center, home of the Bulls and the Blackhawks.

Formerly an industrial manufacturing and warehouse area, the modern West Loop has all of the sophisticated amenities - including art galleries, clubs, theaters, and world class eateries - that make Chicago a destination for buyers. Are you one of them?

As you search for homes around Chicagoland, you’re bound to find some layouts that excite and inspire - and some that leave you scratching your head.

Our city is full of all kinds of structures, some with more space than you may actually need, and some that are cozier than you might think possible. In other cases, a space could come with an architectural flourish that adds extra dimensions or square footage to the home. In other cases, spare space could come in the form of a basement, an attic, a loft space, or even a bedroom you don’t actually need.

If you’re in the market for a home, or you’re a current homeowner getting ready to stage and sell, you may have some of these extra spaces and bonus rooms on your mind.

As a seller getting your home ready to go to market, you may find yourself wanting to talk with your broker or a design professional about how to stage or highlight a bonus room or flexible space. For buyers, even if you’ve combed through design and decor blogs for room ideas, the idea of a bonus area or flex space may leave you feeling a bit flustered.

It’s awesome you have the extra space, after all, but now comes the question: What to do with it?

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.
