With the release of our latest annual Local Leaders list—the ranking of the top 50 new-home markets ranked by closings, and the top 10 builders in each market—BUILDER takes a closer look at a few of this year's fastest-growing markets on the list. Today we focus on Miami and Orlando. Thanks to a booming job market, zero state income tax, sunny weather, and beautiful beaches, Florida is one of the country’s fastest-growing areas of the country.
Straight from the farmyard and into the family room, barn doors are a popular way for homeowners to separate the spaces in their homes. Simpson Door Co. is meeting this growing demand with its newly released line of interior and exterior barn doors. The new doors come in a variety of classic designs and can be mounted on a sliding barn door track or as a traditional swing door.
The southwest Florida housing market is booming, and one of the area's largest builders is enjoying the ride. Neal Communities, No. 43 on this year's Builder 100 list, marked its best month this year in May, with 110 new home sales, bringing its year-to-date total to 524 sales. The record-setting sales signify a more than 50 percent increase from the builder’s numbers last year in May.
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".
