The new Loftin Place apartments in West Palm Beach. (Bill Ingram/Palm Beach Post)A New York landlord is the new owner of the Loftin Place apartments in downtown West Palm Beach. Castle Lanterra Properties of Suffern, N.Y., paid an undisclosed amount for the 259-unit complex at 805 N. Olive Ave. The new owner wouldn’t say how much it paid, and no deed has been recorded. But the sale price was rumored to be more than $60 million, a reflection of intense demand for shiny new rental units.
At the end of 2016, the town of Palm Beach’s mansion market was showing signs of trouble. As of mid-2017, however, prices had rebounded sharply. Among the top 10 percent of single-family sales in Palm Beach, the median price was $15.8 million in the second quarter of 2017, up 56.5 percent from a year earlier, according to a report released Thursday by brokerage Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The average price reached $18.6 million, up 39.5 percent from mid-2016.
President Donald Trump’s golf club here is among the mostly richly valued courses in the county, a fact that would seem to bolster his argument that he’s routinely overtaxed on the Trump National Golf Club. However, a special magistrate ruled against Trump’s appeals of his property tax bill to the Value Adjustment Board three years in a row. And experts in golf course appraisals say valuing the properties can be a tricky task.
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".
