September 28, 2017 / Bloomberg, by Christopher Flavelle       Hurricane Maria’s devastation of Puerto Rico may offer a preview for Americans of one of the most jarring potential consequences of global warming: the movement of large numbers of people pushed out of their homes by the effects of climate change. The storm, which destroyed houses, washed away roads and cut off power to the commonwealth’s 3.4 million residents, risks accelerating an exodus that’s already under way as people flee economic stagnation and rising taxes brought on by a fiscal and debt crisis. On Tuesday, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello warned that without “unprecedented relief” from the U.S. government, “thousands if not millions” of residents could leave the island for…

October 3, 2017 / RISMedia's Housecall, by the experts at Home Advisor       With every new iPhone release, we discover new ways we can’t live without our devices. The iPhone 8 is water proof, rust proof, and has the most durable glass yet. It has enhanced stereo speakers, wireless charging, a stellar camera, and more. However, it comes at a hefty price: $699-$949. You may see that price tag and think, there is so much I could do with $1,000! And you’re right. With $1,000, you could buy a thousand donuts, fly to Europe and back, or even take a couple of cruises. Or, you could tackle a home renovation which will add value and character to your home. You may be surprised by the scope of projects you can pursue with a $1,000 budget. Here are a few to…

October, 2017 / Houselogic.com, by Stacey Freed   The temps are starting to drop; the smell of wood smoke is in the air. Temps are more chilly than warm. That’s when veteran homeowners know it’s time to do these six things if they want to avoid grief or overspending:

#1 Buy Appliances

Whisper to them. Do a rain dance. Whatever it takes to get your old appliances to wait until fall to go on the fritz. Manufacturers bring out their latest models during the fall, and store owners offer big sales on appliances they want to move out — like last year’s most popular dishwasher. So September, October, and November are great months to buy. But October is right in the middle — when there’s still plenty of selection, and retailers might be more willing…

October 3, 2017 / Realtor.com, by Stephanie Booth      Nothing can turn the American dream of owning a home into a nightmare like bad neighbors. They might keep you up with raging late-night parties, or call the cops with a noise complaint when all you're doing is having a nice (and totally tame) backyard barbecue. Who doesn't have at least one agita-inducing story about a crazy neighbor, past or present? Of course, you can't necessarily expect that all people who happen to live near your dream home will be your new BFFs. But it sure would help if they didn't make your life miserable. And sometimes, what seem like indications of a great neighborhood—like scrupulously clean sidewalks—might actually signal that this is not the place for you. We asked…

September 14, 2017 / The Washington Post, by Adina Solomon     Sara Moran’s closet in her Colonial house, built in 1920, once served as a nursery for a past homeowner. But Moran and her husband don’t need that nursery. They have no plans to extend beyond the confines of their two bedrooms and small yard in Stratford, Connecticut. “Because we’re not going to have kids, I don’t really worry about having a big yard. Same with having more room,” she said. “We’re never going to have kids and ever feel like we’re going to be expanding.” The fertility rate in the United States has fallen to its lowest levels since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began keeping records in 1909. The general fertility rate is the total number of births per…
