The Retired Investor: Small-Town America Is in Vogue
By Bill Schmick,
01:53PM / Thursday, November 12, 2020
The on-going coronavirus pandemic has boosted consumer demand for small-town real estate. Whether that trend will continue with a vaccine on the horizon is anyone's guess.    In the meantime, it could be a godsend for those looking to retire and possibly downsize during this period. The obvious driver in this trend change has been the safety factor. The devastating carnage that occurred in the nation's large cities during the first surge of the coronavirus convinced many families to pull up stakes and find dwellings as far from the mayhem (and people) as possible.   Home listings in small towns jumped more than 100 percent this spring, according to Redfin, while

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:20AM / Wednesday, November 11, 2020
  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council set a 1.67 tax shift for fiscal 2021 that will mean 2 cents more on the residential tax rate and 83 cents less on the commercial rate.   The council voted 6-3 to approve the shift after nearly 90 minutes of debate focused on the fairness of shifting the tax burden toward the residential during Tuesday's annual tax classification hearing.
