Real estate agents have long boasted of the lengths they'll go to market properties. Now, for some, the sky's the limit. As unmanned aircraft become more widely available, some agents have started to use drones to sell listings, inviting prospective buyers on aerial tours of country estates, waterfront acreage - and even standard, suburban development. "A buyer today wants to see a stunning Hollywood trailer experience," said Robert McArtor, an agent with Re/Max Components in Fallston, who uses a GoPro camera mounted on the belly of a quadcoptor to take aerial video of his listings.

Stephanie and Jake Martin didn't have to wait long to sell their rowhouse in Baltimore's Canton neighborhood - they had a contract in three days. But buying a new place proved a bit more difficult. The Martins searched for months around Homeland in Baltimore and in Stoneleigh near Towson, but there wasn't much to see. One property that caught their eye ended up with something like a dozen offers. The couple ultimately snapped up a house in Homeland the day before it was listed for sale - thanks to a tip from friends across the street.

Men's Wearhouse sweetened its hostile bid for Hampstead-based Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. on Monday, raising its price more than 10 percent in a deal that hinges on Bank dropping its plans to buy Eddie Bauer. Houston-based Men's Wearhouse boosted its cash offer to shareholders to $63.50 per share from $57.50 per share and moved up the expiration date to March 12. The chain said it would be willing to bid even more — to $65 per share — if Bank allows it to examine the company's financial information.

If you want to get the best price for your home, should you: A. Ask for more than you think it's worth? B. Ask for exactly what you think it's worth? C. Ask for less and count on a bidding war to push you over the top? A study in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization this year argues that the answer - despite what you've probably heard - is A: overprice. Underpricing doesn't work for the average seller, the authors say. They suggest that pricing high pays off in an extremely modest way, a boost of about $100 to $200 on average over similar homes.

It's fair to say that very few novels that devote 496 pages to such weighty themes as race in America ever crack The New York Times best-seller list. But sure enough, there on the June 2 list for hardcover fiction was Columbia resident Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's "Americanah," alongside the perennially popular Dan Brown, Nora Roberts and George R.R. Martin. True, "Americanah" technically ranked in the less-prestigious "also selling" category. And true, it occupied that spot for just one week.

The life of an independent bookstore owner is perilous these days. Having to fend off deadly competition from giant Barnes & Noble, online merchants such as Amazon, and big box stores including Target and Walmart. Still, even with that cut-throat atmosphere, you wouldn't imagine that an indie owner could end up near the top of the Central Intelligence Agency. Until Avril D. Haines came along. Haines, the former co-owner of Adrian's Book Cafe in Baltimore's Fells Point neighborhood, has been named CIA deputy director, the number two position in the spy agency, The Baltimore Sun's John Fritze notes.

A Baltimore councilman is seeking to limit the "convenience" fees Ticketmaster and other ticket sellers add to the price of admission to concerts and sporting events. Councilman Carl Stokes, chairman of the council's taxation committee, introduced a bill Monday that would limit the amount of fees ticket sellers can charge to no more than 15 percent of a ticket's stated price. The bill also would require businesses to disclose such fees in their advertising in Baltimore. "An average ticket has a convenience fee for Ticketmaster of 22 to 25 percent," Stokes said.

The last time Yasmin and Adil Degani bought a home, they took the traditional route. They went with a commission-based real estate brokerage to show them homes and guide them through the homebuying process. This time around, in an effort to save money and time, they decided to try an emerging path. The Odenton couple went with Redfin, a "technology-powered brokerage" that employs salaried agents and encourages buyers to use online profiles of homes to determine what properties to tour.
