A crumbling, borderline unliveable weatherboard house in Northcote has sold for $1.1 million, almost $300,000 above its reserve price. The property’s owner, Stjepan Gotvajn, an elderly gentleman who has called 190 Bastings Street home for half a century, had set the reserve price at $810,000. But with an opening bid of $800,000, Mr Gotvajn’s expectations were quickly exceeded. “He was a little bit excited,” said Nelson Alexander agent Grant Leonard after the auction.
A display site of tiny houses is set to open in Melbourne as interest in small-scale living continues to sweep the country. The Tiny House Village is slated for a vacant block of land on Punt Road, South Yarra. It aims to be Australia’s first one-stop shop for people interesting in micro-sized dwellings, and will feature eight sites for manufacturers to display their products. A display village of tiny houses could arrive in Melbourne within a few months.
A large-scale renovation job has added about $800,000 in value to a luxury pad in Melbourne’s leafy east. A year’s worth of extensive renovations followed, with the property transformed into a chic and stylish contemporary home. And on Saturday, the exhaustive efforts paid off when 10 Howard Street sold for an undisclosed figure, believed to be north of $3,150,000. As the before and after photographs illustrate, the renovations were no mean feat.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
