Tallest home in America up for sale

The 89-floor Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago is the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, making the luxury high-rise condo on the top floor the tallest home in America. The massive apartment recently went on the market, and the owner is reportedly seeking at least $32 million for the property, reports Forbes.

"There really is nothing comparable to this property in Chicago or the United States. It is one of the largest condominiums all on one floor, which makes it very desirable," real estate agent Chezi Rafaeli told the news source.

Then again, there are a few spots that compare. For example, a yet-to-be-built top-floor penthouse in New York City's new One57 building recently sold for $90 million, making the $32 million price tag for the Chicago property a bit cheap. The condo takes up an entire floor of the massive tower, making it quite spacious, but much of the value comes from its location in downtown Chicago. For example, Michael Jordan's palatial estate in a Chicago suburb recently sold for $29 million.

While a massive home like this is certainly luxurious, it's out of the price range for most people. However, many homeowners might be surprised by the amount of space they can free up in their own home or apartment simply by moving clutter and junk into self storage. By choosing a self storage facility with affordable rates, homeowners can make their home a bit more spacious without breaking their budget.

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
