On a day, like today, thoughts turn to little ones holding households hostage for candy, and hauntings. That's right, hauntings. Every town, every area has those notorious homes, or buildings that everyone thinks are haunted. Right here in Evanston, the Music Administration building on Northwestern University's campus is considered haunted. The building was built in 1874, so it's certainly got that going for it... and it's kinda creepy looking with that black mansard roof. Students in the building have reported sightings (and hearings?) of a former student who once attended school in that building, named Young Cliff. Apparently there have been Young Cliff sightings for decades. What haunted places do you have in your hometown?

Single-family housing starts plunged unexpectedly last month. Nationwide, starts fell 12 percent from the month prior; and 29 percent from February of last year. February's figures represents the worst 1-month drop in housing starts since May 2010 -- the month that followed the expiration of last year's federal home buyer tax credit -- and puts single-family housing starts at a 24-month low. In addition, single-family Building Permits plunged last month, too, shedding 9 percent from January. A building permit is a local government's certification and approval to begin home construction. Housing permits are an excellent forward-indicator for the housing mark...

The Federal Open Market Committee meets today in Washington D.C. The FOMC is a special group within the Federal Reserve, led by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, and consisting of 12 members. The FOMC's official schedule calls for 8 meetings annually at which it reviews the nation's economic and financial conditions, and chooses whether to change existing monetary policy. The group's last rendez-vous was a 2-day affair, January 25-26, 2011. Today's FOMC meeting represents a bona fide risk to home buyers and rate shoppers in Chicago and across the country. This is because when the Fed meets, Wall Street gets nervous which, in turn, causes mortgage rates to get volatile. And, as mortgage rates go, so goes home affordability.  Rate shoppers learned this the hard way after the FOMC's last meeting....

Last week, Standard & Poor's released its Case-Shiller Index for December 2010. The index is a home valuation tracker, meant to meausure the change in home prices from one period to the next. December's Case-Shiller Index showed major devaluations nationwide. As compared to December 2009, on a year-over-year basis, home values fell in 18 of the Case Shiller Index's 20 tracked markets, and the U.S. National Index dropped 4 percent overall.  The retreat puts December's home values at similar levels as compared to early-2003. That said, buyers and sellers in the Evergreen Park area would be wise to take the findings lightly. The Case-Shiller Index is inherently flawed. As such, its results are neither practical -- nor relevant -- to everyday Americans. There are 3 Case-Shiller flaws, in f...

Foreclosure activity is slowing. According to foreclosure-tracker RealtyTrac, the number of foreclosure filings dropped 17 percent on an annual basis last month. Monthly filings ticked higher 1 percent after a combined 23 percent decrease through November and December 2010. The phrase "foreclosure filing" is a catch-all term, comprising default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions.  January marked the third straight month of sub-300,000 filings after 20 straight months above it. As compared to January 2010, six of the nation's 10 most foreclosure-heavy states posted an annual foreclosure filing reduction. The remaining four showed modest worsening. It's noteworthy that states like California and Florida posted declines of 7 percent and 54 percent, respectively, and that ...
