REAL ESTATE STATISTICS SERVICE RELEASED
FOR THE SUNSHINE COAST OF BRITISH COLUMBIA

SECHELT, BC, CANADA — October 1, 2009 — Sunshine Coast real estate agent Gary Little has today released an internet-based statistics service to present historical residential sales data for Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour, and neighbouring areas. The statistics, shown in convenient chart form, are useful for quickly analyzing the state of the residential real estate market in one of the most dynamic real estate markets in British Columbia.

The statistics are currently presented as a set of 10 charts:

  • Unit Sales Volume by Month
  • Unit Sales Volume by Area
  • Median Sales Price by Month
  • Median Sales Price by Area
  • Median 'Days on Market'
  • Median 'Days on Market' by Area
  • Unit Sales Volume Sold at Full Price (or Higher)
  • Median 'Sales Price % Below Last Asking Price'
  • Median 'Sales Price : Property Tax Ratio'
  • Median 'Sales Price : Property Tax Ratio' by Area

The charts are updated automatically on the 1st day of the month to reflect sales data reported through the end of the previous month. No one, not even the local real estate board, provides monthly sales statistics so quickly to the general public.

An important feature of the statistics service is its dynamic and interactive nature. The standard set of charts show statistics for the entire Sunshine Coast. However, a form is provided on the website which can be used to specify a subset of this area for which charts are to be shown. Charts can be requested for specific towns, or for any arbitrary group of postal codes, and they will be shown within seconds of the request.

To view the statistics, go to http://www.GaryLittle.ca/stats.html

"Buyers, sellers, and even other agents will find these charts useful for identifying price and unit sales trends on the Sunshine Coast", said Gary Little, an agent with Royal LePage Sunshine Coast. "And since the charts are created dynamically, activity in any specific sub-market can also be analyzed very quickly."

The programming for this statistics service was provided by Gary Little himself. He is a former manager in the computer industry and the winner of two awards for excellence in software programming and design.
