The Action: This former lottery home on a 50-by-117-foot corner lot was priced under $600,000 but it took over two months to find a buyer with a bigger than average budget to sign a deal mid-May. "Our average house price in Lethbridge is under $300,000 and this property is almost double that," said agent Courtney Atkinson. "Sixty-eight days on market is faster than average for a property like that. We've seen properties like that last well over a year."
The Action: For the early part of 2017, there were virtually zero vacancies at the News complex near Edworthy Park along the Bow River, so this two-level unit briefly monopolized buyers' attention. But once similar units appeared a few weeks later, its price was reduced to $275,000 from $325,000 as an incentive for a September sale. "We didn't have anything [listed] for about six months, then all of a sudden, we had six during our listing all at once," agent Christina Hagerty said.
Burlington-based developer Tariq Adi is accustomed to project delays because of consultations with local residents. So he wasn't prepared for the reception to his latest luxury condo project in midtown Toronto. "For once, the neighbourhood wants this building built," said Mr. Adi, chief executive of Adi Development Group. "I've never seen that kind of positive response to a building."
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".
