SECHELT, BC, CANADA — December 8, 2006 — Sunshine Coast real estate professional Gary Little has today delivered a major upgrade to his unique group of interactive Internet maps which show the locations of hundreds of homes for sale in Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour, and neighbouring areas. These maps allow convenient access to information on property for sale in one of the hottest real estate markets in British Columbia.

The property maps, which integrate satellite imagery and street maps, can be used to quickly locate homes for sale in specific geographic areas of interest and to learn more about a home simply by clicking its marker on the map.

Today's upgrade also allows users to perform searches by price range or by property type (House, Apartment, Townhouse, Duplex, and Manufactured Home). In addition, individual properties may be marked to allow a list of properties of interest to be put together quickly. Substantial improvements in the display speed of the maps have also been incorporated into the upgrade.

"The primary appeal of these maps is that they allow home buyers to quickly locate all homes for sale in specific neighbourhoods of interest. And, with today's upgrade, people can also isolate properties by type or by price range," said Gary Little. "For example, with three mouse clicks you can bring up a map which shows all properties for sale in the Welcome Woods area of Halfmoon Bay which are priced below $500,000. There is no other tool out there that can do this."

The interactive property maps of the Sunshine Coast may be used free of charge and can be viewed at http://map.GaryLittle.ca/. The maps are updated daily from data obtained, in part, from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.

The mapping software was developed by Gary Little using several advanced tools, notably the mapping infrastructure provided by Google, Inc. of Mountain View, Calif. The maps can be viewed with most modern Web browsers.
