Nearly one quarter of U.S. home sales last year closed at over their listed price, according to a new Zillow study. This national average has increased since 2012, when 17.8 percent sold over-asking; in 2017 that percentage to 24.1. The study is much more dramatic when we look at individual cities. In 2017, over half of home sales in San Jose, San Francisco, and Seattle went for more than the listed prices. Around the nation, Boston went from 13.4 percent in 2012 to 40.6 percent in 2017.
Finding classic Victorians that not only made it through the 1906 earthquake but also through the hands of would-be modernizers can be daunting in San Francisco. But 2825 Pine, circa 1887, is a well-preserved beauty on the market now for $2.495 million. All total, the home has four beds and three baths. The main home consists of three beds and two baths, a formal dining room, sunroom, and office. The home also offers a one-car garage.
Every year the Bay Area ends at or near the top of those annual hottest real estate markets lists, but the actual picture within our local rental market is a bit more complicated these days and rents aren’t going up every month everywhere. Data pulled from 2017’s close reveals some surprises, and we wanted to take a snapshot of what we found for rent in the most and least expensive markets. Is there such a thing as “inexpensive” for Bay Area renters? In a word, no.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
