It’s safe to say that 2020 will go down in history like a year no other. Even, or perhaps especially, in real estate.
Author Zachary D. Carter has come under fire for downplaying his subject’s attraction to the eugenics movement, but that aside, this biography not only of Keynes but of Keynsianism is consistently fascinating, and manages to deploy the jargon of the profession in ways that always illuminate rather than confuse.
Lipstick, on the other hand, had a pretty poor 2020. Often obliged to hide the lower half of our faces behind coverings, we ditched the bright colors in favor of a natural lip that wouldn't smudge our masks, relegating lipstick to the bottom of our makeup drawers. Why bother, when no one could see us smile anyway?
2020 will go down in history for many things, but one thing it won’t be recognized for: being the easiest year to buy a first home. This year’s super-low mortgage…
Think of the Honda Insight as an electrified Civic. The two match up pretty closely in terms of size, price and equipment, and both have plenty of passenger and cargo room. The Insight’s hybrid powertrain is the primary differentiator. Depending on trim, the Insight earns 48-52 mpg in the EPA’s combined cycle, while the turbocharged Civic gets 33-36 mpg combined.
Q: I live in a suburb of Chicago and have two neighbors across the street who I have met a couple of times at block parties. Both are a bit older than I am. My guess is that at some point in the next five to 10 years these neighbors will move out and sell their home. They have the kind of property that a developer would likely buy, tear down and build a large home there.
DanceWorX Studio has changed ticket prices for its fall production of "Frozen 2" at the Belle Mehus Auditorium in downtown Bismarck Nov. 13-15.
False. Some experts will tell you not to buy your lease at the end of the term for a number of reasons. The price is often non-negotiable, the prices can be sometimes out of touch with the market, and none of your lease payments have counted toward this purchase. But here’s why you should reconsider.
TRUMP: “Drug prices will be coming down 80 or 90%.”

Reader comment: You recently answered a question about a home seller paying the commission to an agent for a “pocket listing.” You bypass the larger issue and the reason that so-called pocket listings are against the National Association of Realtor (NAR) rules. “Pocket listings” are against Fair Housing rules. You should put an addendum to your answer addressing that issue.
Shopping for your first house is stressful enough, but when you’re finally ready to be a homeowner and the pickings are slim, the process can become a roller-coaster ride of…

The pick for the under $20,000 category is a good one, but unfortunately, it’s not going to be one that you can buy new for long. It’s the Honda Fit, and the big H has already confirmed its death for the U.S. market. Its inclusion in this list makes sense, though, because when it comes to reliability, resale value and safety, Honda is usually a safe bet. The bonus is that the Fit is plenty nice to drive and gets excellent gas mileage.
Q. I am an old codger and want to get a turntable to play vinyl again. I like the Technics SL-1500C, but it is over my budget by a lot. I want something good, but for under $1,000. I need the auto off feature because I am afraid of forgetting when the record is over and having it spin for hours and hours, ruining my needle.
Larger than the Chevrolet Trax, but inexplicably starting at a lower price, the Trailblazer’s unexpectedly large cabin offers good space while delivering a comfortable ride given its price. The base engine comes with front-wheel drive; a more powerful one gets all-wheel drive. Finishes aren’t lavish, but they’re not cheap, either. Of the two Chevrolets here, this is the one to buy.
