The increase in Charlotte-area home prices continued to outpace the national average in April, according to a key index measuring the health of U.S. housing markets. However, that annual gain of 6.1% seen in the Charlotte region cooled slightly from the 6.7% rate posted in March, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller report released on Tuesday. A graph at the bottom of this story provides a snapshot of how home prices have increased over the past year in the Charlotte area.
It's no secret that home prices in the Charlotte region remain on the up and up, as is a common theme seen by housing markets across the nation. Local and national housing reports have long shown similar results for the Charlotte market; sales prices continue to increase amid a depleted housing inventory — telltale signs of a seller's market. The Charlotte Regional Realtor Association reported earlier this month that the median sales price in May rose 7.9% from the previous year — to $226,500.
CORRECTION: The name of contrator MacAulay-Brown was misspelled. The Chronicle regrets the error. Nearly a year after the Army announced plans to relocate its Cyber Command headquarters to Fort Gordon, the metro area continues to attract defense contractors related to the mission, even though it’s hard to peg just how many. “There’s no recruiting the contractors,” said Thom Tuckey, the executive director for the CSRA Alliance for Fort Gordon. “We don’t have to invite them because they’re coming.
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".
