The lexicon of real estate listing language has many terms for putting a positive spin on features the average buyer wouldn't like. "Bold" for the orange-and-green themed condo. "Cute" for the house decorated for princess-loving preadolescents. Now comes a phrase custom-made for homes that haven't been updated since the Johnson administration: "'Mad Men' style. " That's the creative advertising used in the listing for a Baltimore County house that just hit the market for $475,000.

The Cincinnati Bengals ran into a buzz saw named Tom Brady last Sunday night during an ugly loss to the New England Patriots. The 43-17 blowout raised questions about the Bengals' ability to defend elite offenses without injured Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the lineup. The Patriots piled up 505 yards of total offense against a Cincinnati defense that entered last week having allowed the fewest points in the NFL. In their first loss of the season, the Bengals (3-1) struggled mightily to contain Patriots tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Tim Wright, who had a combined 11 catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns.

The number of homes sold in the Baltimore metro area last month dropped sharply from January, but the decline likely doesn't mean the market is taking a turn for the worse. There were just under 1,500 closed sales in Baltimore and its neighboring counties during February, a 5.7 percent drop from the first month of the year, according to data released Monday by RealEstate Business Intelligence LLC. It's not unheard of for sales numbers to drop off between January and February.

It is a great irony that Baltimore is celebrating the three-year anniversary of its Vacants to Values program and promising to spend $22 million on demolishing housing over the next two years while Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano defines the vacancy problem as one of a "shrinking city" with too many vacant homes for too few people ( "Vacants to value: growing Baltimore block by block," Nov. 11). This stands in stark contrast with the reality of more than 4,000 people who experience homelessness on any given night in Baltimore City, and that of more than 30,000 people on the public housing waiting list.

December was another positive month for home sales in metropolitan Baltimore, though the market supply of homes continued to dwindle, dropping below 10,000 for the first time since February 2006. Last month, 1,945 home sales closed in Baltimore and its five surrounding counties, according to data released by RealEstate Business Intelligence LLC, an affiliate of the region's multiple-listing service. That's a 3.6 percent drop from November, but nearly a 13 percent increase over December 2011.

It is not often that a visitor receives a Dickensian welcome at the front gate of a historic Monkton home decorated for the holidays. Dressed to the nines in fresh greenery, this circa 1840, white-washed brick structure wears red bows and pine cones on green wreaths like haute couture. Two women arrange garlands to sweep the length and breadth of the white picket fence surrounding a small front garden. Large brass lanterns on either side of the front entrance light the steps up to the front door.

In a wooded neighborhood near the old U.S. 1 commercial corridor in Howard County, an excavator and a bulldozer are working in a big muddy patch to prepare ground for 10 new houses designed for a future of smaller, more efficient homes for moderate-income families. The 1,313-square-foot Cottages at Greenwood are to be wheelchair-accessible and affordable, and are expected to use 62 percent less energy and cut typical home utility bills in half. County officials intend to keep one home for a few years to demonstrate the combination of features to builders and to the public.

Ann and Dominic Wiker loved life in their Federal Hill home. As a professional couple in their 30s, the neighborhood was ideal - they could walk to most attractions, shops and restaurants. It seemed there was always something fun going on outside their door. Then parenthood happened, and with it came the idea of moving to the suburbs. They would move, but they wouldn't leave Federal Hill. Nine years later, the Wikers - mom, dad, 9-year old Alex and 7-year old Tommy - have, to their delight, become a poster family for raising children in an urban environment.

DETROIT -- The Orioles struck first in Game 3 of the American League Division Series -- and they did it in a familiar fashion. Designated hitter Nelson Cruz went deep in October. He has done that a bit. In the sixth inning, Cruz planted an 84-mph changeup from Tigers left-hander David Price just over the wall next to the foul pole in right field for a two-run homer to break a scoreless tie. A frustrated Tigers fan caught the ball and then placed it on the edge of the wall.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke gave the stock market the tonic it wanted: Interest rates will stay low. Stocks rallied Wednesday and ended a two-day slide after Bernanke sounded an upbeat note about the economy during his semiannual report to Congress. He told the House Financial Services Committee he still expects rates will remain low for an extended period. Investors want to see low-cost borrowing continue to help revive the economy. At the same time, a disappointing report on new-home sales brought the latest reminder that a recovery in the economy will be difficult even with government aid. The Commerce Department said sales of new homes fell to a record low in January.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

When Ward Westrick retired from commercial real estate development, he and wife Ginny were happy to sell their home in McLean and leave the density of Northern Virginia behind to settle on the Chesapeake Bay's calmer shores. While Ward may have made a living in development, he and Ginny did not want to build a home. However, after looking at as many as 50 houses from Gibson Island to Mayo and finding nothing but disappointment, they snapped up a 2.25 acre parcel on the South River in Annapolis (before it was even listed)
