BRISBANE’S prestige market has sizzled this Winter, with million-dollar homes snapped up before auction or facing strong competition under the hammer. Twenty-five Brisbane homes were listed as having sold in the past week for $1 million or more, according to Realestate.com.au data, with more having gone under contract. One of the city’s most expensive suburbs, New Farm, has just had a stunning brand new four bedroom home go under contract hours before it was set to go to auction on Saturday.
IN a show of growing strength, three quarters of all houses sold in Brisbane in the past year cost more than $400,000, latest data found. CoreLogic research showed 74 per cent of River City house sales were over $400,000 in the year to June compared to just a third a decade ago. The breakdown compared to annual sales two decades ago was dramatic, going from a measly 2 per cent of houses sold in 1997 to three out of four houses now.
A RENOVATED cottage in Brisbane’s inner-city could be one of Brisbane’s best makeovers, transforming a dated property into a modern stunner. When the two bedroom, single bathroom, single garage house at 65 Beck Street, Paddington, last sold in April 2015, it needed a major update and was billed as an entry level property with potential. A mere 3km from the Brisbane CBD, the new owner set to work turning the replica home built in the 90s into a modern classic.
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".
