CENTURY 21 Canada Launches Full-Screen Property Photos

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 19, 2008) - CENTURY 21 Canada has released a new enhancement to its real estate website that allows visitors to view full-screen photos of listed homes. The feature, called Showcase21, provides fast and easy access to large, clear photos of properties.

CENTURY 21 Canada President, Don Lawby, explains how this enhancement will benefit prospective homebuyers. "The most common thing visitors to Century21.ca do is view property photos. This new feature will improve our clients' experience in screening and reviewing prospective homes. Now more than ever, we believe we have the best real estate website in the world when measured by quantity and quality of photos per listing."

An example of this user friendly feature can be found here: http://www.century21.ca/100466507.

Property listings with 21 photos are identified with a "21 Photos" starburst, and when available in high resolution format, the Showcase21 logo will be displayed as well. Clicking the primary photo opens a photo viewer where visitors can quickly toggle through the property's photos. Clicking the 'Launch Showcase21' button upgrades the presentation to full-screen mode. Other features of Century21.ca include "open an account" - which allows website visitors to receive first notice on new listings and "request a showing". These features are unmatched by any other Canadian real estate website.

"In today's real estate market, home sellers are becoming more aware of the importance of partnering with a real estate organization that understands how to use the web effectively to help sell their home," says Lawby. "Century21.ca combines the company's history of customer service and professionalism with leadership in the online world. Real estate sales activity is increasingly online, and we want to make the experience as helpful and productive as it can be for buyers and sellers across Canada."
