Remodeling ROI - Kitchens and Baths - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

If you want a guaranteed ROI on your home, consider updating your kitchen and bathroom. At J.P. Weigand & Sons, our real estate agents consistently hear from buyers that upgraded kitchens and bathrooms are at the top of their priority list when looking for a new home.

Kitchen and bathroom renovations and upgrades provide strong incentives for buyers and increased profits for sellers. Since these utilitarian spaces serve a special purpose for essential daily living, kitchens and bathrooms are two of the most important rooms in the home.


Like most homeowners, you likely spend a lot of time in your kitchen, especially if you love to cook or have a large family. The kitchen serves as the heart of your home where you spend a lot of time chopping, blending, cooking, and cleaning. Anything that makes these daily kitchen tasks and chores easier, faster, and more convenient is a welcome relief.

Wichita Tourist Attractions - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

The Wichita area is bursting with fun attractions and things to do. But if you've lived here for a while, you may not take the time to venture out and explore as much as you used to. This summer, consider taking a "staycation" and re-acquainting yourself with the Wichita area through a tourist's eyes. Here are some of the top attractions our real estate agents recommend.

  • Jurassic Art: 256 W. Rosewood St., Rose Hill KS, 67133
    If you're looking at Rose Hill homes for sale, be sure to stop at Jurassic Art while you're in the area. This offbeat tourist attraction is a collection of artistic creations related to Jurassic Park and the Jurassic period in general. 

    Visitors can drive or walk through the park for free. You'll see dinosaur sculptures, a 15.5-foot Sir Allen the Knight, and even a graveyard for discontinued cars.

Closet Turned Office - Wichita, KS - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

Have you found yourself working from home a little more frequently this past year? You're not alone if you have, and you're not likely to return to the office anytime soon. Most Americans have indicated they would prefer to work from home rather than return to the cubicle. However, many Americans have discovered that working from home daily requires finding creative ways to transform areas into ad hoc offices. If you're looking for a fast and easy way to find space and close up the office at the end of the day, our real estate agents recommend taking a closer look at your cluttered closets. 

Clutter Can Go

Closets are catch-alls for clutter. They are filled with old sporting equipment, packing materials, shopping bags, old shoes, items for Goodwill, and more. While that little voice in the back of your head says, "You'll use this someday," that little voice is blowing smoke. You'll never need it. You'll never use it. And, you'll never miss it. So, clear it out and toss or donate it. With spring cleaning in high gear, now is the perfect time to motivate yourself to create a cloffice you will use week after week, year after year.
