Finding the best house with the least amount of frustration requires buyers to shop wisely -- long before they tour the first property for sale.* Know your priorities.Carolyn Janik and Ruth Rejnis, authors of "All America's Real Estate Book" (Viking, 1985), suggest everyone in the family write down what they want in a house: double garage, close to shopping, fireplace, woods nearby.Include also what isn't desirable: a busy street, sloping lot, high payments that prevent you from taking vacations.

He came to the auction on a whim and in the excitement wound up spending $88,000 on a vacation home in Ocean Pines that he'd never seen.Warren Klawans of Pikesville proved to be just the sort of bidder the Resolution Trust Corp. (RTC) had in mind when it put 30 properties on the auction block before a crowd of about 500 last night."Obviously, I didn't get a bargain," said the 57-year-old Mr. Klawans, a retired real estate broker, after he emerged from the noisy auction room to learn more about the home from an agent.

Getting serious about selling your home? Then whisper the words "brokers' open" into your agent's ear.A brokers' open house draws real estate sales people into your home -- usually for a light midweek luncheon and tour. Leave a good impression with these influential individuals and your marketing plan can gain great momentum."Brokers' open houses are a wonderful way to expose your property to people who actively market real estate in your community," says Dorcas Helfant, president of the National Association of Realtors.

Tom Cupp is a do-it-yourself kind of guy. In the seven years that the electronic maintenance engineer and his family have lived in their Northeast Baltimore rowhouse, he has handled most repairs and renovations himself -- converting the basement into a family room, laying a new asphalt shingle roof and refinishing the wooden floors.So it was only natural that when Mr. Cupp put his house on the market in November, he would try to sell it with as little help as possible."I like to do new things, and I figured that I'd give it a shot, because I was looking at saving a lot of money," Mr. Cupp said.

Fashion is back in quickstep with the times. We had slowe down -- for a little while. We did penance for the greedy style of the '80s and its designer logos and snubby status turnouts. We've tried to be serious in the correct '90s demeanor by dressing like trail-worn pioneers, modern monastics or bedraggled Victorian match girls.This fall we can stop pretending. There is a place for glamour, humor and color in the active life of today's urban woman -- mother, careerist, do-gooder, party-goer.

This fall designers have distilled some of the best fashion innovations of this century and streamlined them for its last decade. Daytime silhouettes are clean and spare, with the interest in patterns and textures rather than trimmings. Evening dressing acknowledges the need for fantasy and a touch of drama.These are ideas we have seen before, but softer fabrications, built-in stretch and high-tech finishes make them new.There are hints of the '30s, when every occasion meant dressing and fashion meant polish.

Jade Fertich day-tripped down to Baltimore yesterday not because he was worried about the end of Pimlico; he feared the end of the world. "Lots of sin coming in," the Mechanicsburg, Pa., resident advised, surveying the beer-burdened Preakness Day crowd entering the race course. "Drunkards shall not inherit the kingdom of God." Despite sunny skies, the start of the day did have a certain cataclysmic feel. Medics pocketed fistfuls of surgical gloves. A policeman stood on a median with his hands in his pockets, as if he had already realized the futility of directing traffic.
