The government has given buyers using the credit another three months to close sales, and the initiative is being imitated on a smaller scale by states and private companies. But some think the market would be better off if we laid it to rest for good.

Golf legend Gary Player and PGA Tour newcomer Billy Horschel hit the links with clubs (and clothes) from three different eras and discover that everything has changed about the game--except its sense of style.
For most people, analytics is one of those subjects that other people pay attention to. There are a number of reasons why this is the case: there’s not enough time, it doesn’t seem important, or maybe it seems way too ...

A price quote means nothing until it is properly locked with the lender. A rate lock, as it is commonly called, is the lender's commitment that it will make the specified loan at the specified price within a specified future period. The price includes not only the interest rate but also points, which are upfront charges expressed as a percent of the loan; fixed-dollar charges; and (if the loan is adjustable-rate) the margin and maximum rate.
It's always hard to predict how long it will take to find a home to buy. Given the current low-inventory environment, it may take you longer than it would in a balanced market that has enough homes for sale to satisfy the current buyer demand.
Patience needs to be a key component of your home search mentality. Even if a home you like a lot comes along quickly in your search, other buyers may have the same idea. You could end up in competition. If you aren't the winning bidder, don't let disappointment immobilize you.

For a while it seemed that anyone with a lot of money, from Hollywood stars to business moguls, wanted a piece -- make that a very large piece of -- America, and they came west looking to buy their own ranches. Many, following the lead of flamboyant media entrepreneur, Ted Turner, looked to acquire in Montana.
During the bubble years, investors couldn't acquire Montana ranches fast enough.
Redfin launched a redesigned website this week and Inman News caught up with the Seattle-based brokerage's CEO, Glenn Kelman, to talk about its new features.

Anyone on Facebook in the last few days has likely seen the pink-and-red logo that many people are setting as their profile images this week in support of gay marriage, the subject of two cases the U.S. Supreme Court is currently hearing. Bond New York, which claims to be the largest independently-owned brokerage in New York City with 500 agents and staff, has incorporated features of the Human Rights Campaign logo that's come to represent support of gay marriage into its own branding ...
Trading everywhere has ceased for Passover, Good Friday, and Easter, but next week brings a flood of brand-new information for March, capped on Friday by employment data. Thus a good time to reflect.
I do not recall a moment in which so many economic elements at the same time have been at points of inflection. In the old days (five years ago) nothing much mattered except U.S. data. In global markets the world is more important than the U.S.
Fraud by building contractors is a distressingly common occurrence.
How's this for a nightmare scenario: You agree to pay a contractor $400,000 to tear down part of your house and put in an addition. While the work is going on, you, your spouse, and five children stay with the wife's parents. The contractor tells you that the work is progressing according to schedule and you make multiple payments.

Microsoft launched its next-generation video game console on May 21st at a special event on their corporate campus in Redmond, Washington called "Xbox: A New Generation Revealed." The new console, called the Xbox One, will help usher in the next generation of video game hardware, and ramp up the war for gamer dollars between Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft.
Microsoft revealed its new console, the Xbox One, today, and the console race is officially on. It's not close to finished, but both Sony and Microsoft have had a chance to give us a first look at their new consoles, and I'm handing this first round to Microsoft. Neither company exactly blew it out of the water, but in a battle of mostly-boring, unsatisfactory console reveals, Microsoft's felt more together.
When Microsoft unveils its new Xbox later today pinch yourself, and say: but this is an office productivity company. They make Excel. The latest Xbox goes head to head with the equally anticipated PlayStation 4, made by a rival that has always been an innovator in devices of one kind or another - Walkman, TV sets, HiFi, phones- to which it added content: music and movies.
Back in 1975, while most desks were still furnished with manual typewriters, technology pundits were making their predictions on the future of computers in the workplace. Computers showed tremendous potential for word processing and automation, they said, but would they really ever be user-friendly enough for general use?
Behind that veneer of workplace confidence, your co-workers and even your boss may harbor serious doubts about their closest relationships. That’s the finding of a groundbreaking study released today, The State of Friendship in America Report, 2013 [infographic], which sheds new light on the dire social landscape facing adults across the country. Key findings include:
In the long run, it may be determined that Fast Five was the Empire Strikes Back of the Fast/Furious franchise. It has long been argued that the unexpected character-driven quality of Irvin Kirshner's second Star Wars chapter was so thoughtful, meditative, and emotionally potent that it set a bar too high for the rest of the entertaining gee-whiz space adventures to reach. By the standards of every other entry in the cars-and-capers series, Fast & Furious 6 (actually titled Furious 6 in the opening titles) is a generally entertaining big-scale action adventure film that is easily recommended to fans of the series. But it can't help but feel inferior to its unexpectedly terrific predecessor even as it clearly attempts to reach the same heights.
