On the Move: Relocation spotlight shines on Heritage Texas Properties
On the Move: What buyers need to know about option periods, relo addendumsWhen people relocate to Houston from out-of-state, one of the aspects of the Texas residential resale contract that they are typically unfamiliar with, is the termination option, or option period, as it is commonly known. Simply put, the option period allows the buyer to pay a fee to the seller, for the unrestricted right to terminate the contract for any reason, within a specified time period.
On the Move: Understand the market when moving back to HoustonHouston is a city that sees its share of relocation traffic, particularly as it relates to individuals who are employed by the oil and gas industries. In fact, it is not unusual for people within those industries to find themselves moving to Houston, not once, but perhaps multiple times. For some, it might have only been a few years since their last stint in Houston, while others might be returning after several years away.
On the move: Technology plays increasing role in relocationOver the years, the tools of the trade Realtors have at their disposal have changed quite a bit. Due to the advances in technology and the use of various apps, Realtors are able to expedite communication with their clients and connect in a variety of ways. This is especially helpful when assisting people who are relocating, because Realtors and their clients are often geographically separated during different stages of the process.
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".
