We’ve all heard the horror stories of parents stuck with their adult kids at home. They just don’t seem to want to leave! However, this new trend toward multigenerational homes is one that is driving the real estate market. Last month the National Association of Realtors, or NAR, released its 2017 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. One of the most interesting takeaways was the rise of the multigenerational home.
Last week, GOP leaders released their long-awaited tax bill. Mind you, that this is not law, just a starting point for the conversation. However, with an already ailing real estate market, maybe the best way to start the conversation isn’t by making it harder to own a home. When the GOP released the plan, it was supposed to be super helpful, and in some ways, it is.
It’s a scary thing, deciding to sell a home. And it can be daunting figuring out when is the best time to do so. Naturally, most people are unsure when it comes to selling a home with so many memories. Almost everyone will be a little hesitant, but if you give into that fear you may miss out on the next step of your journey. There will always be a reason you can find to not sell right now. The current one is that sales slowdown over the winter. Spring brings a boom in sales, so why not wait?
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".
