Q: I recently read a response you wrote to a reader about her building shaking when big trucks go by. I live in condominium building in Chicago, and there is a dip in the street in front of our building.
Q: I am a 66-year old single female. I have about $75,000 in savings. The homes I have looked at that I would feel comfortable living in start at about $130,000.
Q: I've not seen fracking addressed in your column but I understand that doesn't mean you haven't! A: Thanks for your comment. Usually, homeowners' insurance policies start by telling a homeowner what property is covered under the policy.
