The Oklahoman's coverage of energy and the office market give regular readers a good handle on the ups and downs and ins and out of both, and how they interact. In case you missed it, CBRE summarized things in its 2017 Energy Trends Report. Rodney Provience, analyst with CBRE Americas Research's Texas-Oklahoma Division, sent me a copy. Here are some national highlights, plus a hard-eyed local observation or two.
Limited supply and strong demand kept home prices up and gave sellers the edge in negotiations in 2017, according to a year-end report from MLSOK, the Oklahoma City Metro Association of Realtors' multiple listing service. Low unemployment and high consumer confidence should keep sellers in control in 2018 despite pockets of surging construction in some parts of the metro area and uncertainty over the effects of tax reform, Realtors said.
Bad news first: Oklahoma City landed near the bottom of 78 "markets to watch" in 2018 in "Emerging Trends in Real Estate," the annual look at investment prospects compiled by the Urban Land Institute and PwC. Good news that Oklahoma City is still a market to watch, even with an overall ranking at No. 74, No. 69 in investment and No. 75 in development. For comparison's sake, Memphis is just ahead of us (No. 73 overall, No. 72 in investment and No.
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".
