Bathroom Fixes When Selling Your Condo

The before and after for a recent one bedroom, one bathroom condo listing in a highrise on Chicago's Lakefront. The vanity was nice and the tile in good shape. However, the original tub and fixtures were dated.

I make the point that bathrooms must look fresh and crisp when showing the home. They must be deep cleaned, re-caulked and regrouted if necessary.

In this case, we replaced the mirror and medicine cabinet, tore out the glass door, reglazed the tub, cleaned up and fixed bad tile spots and painted a modern color. I staged the bath after the renovation work.

It looks brand new... even live and up close.
