This luxury bolthole could be the city’s most secret hideaway... and it’s a just a stone’s throw away from Old Trafford . With its elegant curved entrance hall, luxurious shower room and swish lounge area, you could be forgiven for thinking that you'd walked thorough the doors of a sweeping country mansion. But it’s actually an ultra-exclusive pad built by a leading Salford businessman to impress and entertain clients: and it’s inside an office block by the Manchester Ship Canal.
Bury has been crowned one of the UK’s property hotspots - and house prices in Salford have hit an all-time high as the Manchester property boom spills out to neighbouring areas. Over recent months, Manchester has been at the centre of feverish investment as property buyers and developers turn their sights from London to the north. But new figures now show how house prices in nearby boroughs are now experiencing their own booms.
First-time buyers are so desperate to buy their own homes that they are saddling themselves with an extra 10 years of debt to get on the housing ladder. But rising prices and tougher affordability tests have seen many would-be buyers opting to pay back over a longer term so that they can get on the property ladder. With the pay off being they are shelling out thousands of pounds more in long-term interest.
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".
