Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Home/Garden Editor, Media Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor COURTENAY, B.C. NEW REAL ESTATE REWARDS PROGRAM--(CCNMatthews - May 3, 2007) - Now vacation home buyers have another reason to make British Columbia their home away from home. WaterfrontWest.com, a web site that showcases luxury waterfront properties across B.C, has kicked off an
incentive program, "Best of the West," which provides buyers with western hospitality before they even move into their new home.

The program gives tourism discounts to visiting buyers working with Realtors or sellers with properties on WaterfrontWest.com. Eight of B.C.'s finest hotels and resorts are part of the program. Although the rewards packages are different for each hotel or resort, the program is set up to provide discounted or free lodging, spa services or meals.

"We think this program will be a great incentive for Realtors or property owners to entice potential buyers to the most scenic spots in Canada," says Sharleen Whiteside, president of WaterfrontWest.com. "It's a great way to showcase the hospitality of the region, which can be a huge factor, especially when buyers are considering a vacation home in several parts of the country or even the world."

People shopping for a B.C. waterfront home can sign up for the program by visiting www.WaterfrontWest.com and completing a form. Current participants that are part of "Best of the West" include: Wickaninnish Inn, Tofino; Grand Okanagan Resort and Conference Centre, Kelowna; Tuwanek Hotel, Sechelt; Poets Cove Resort and Spa, South Pender Island; King Pacific Lodge, Princess Royal Island; Wedgewood Hotel and Spa, Vancouver; South Thompson Inn and Conference Centre, Kamloops; and The Dean on Nimpo, Nimpo Lake.

In addition to showcasing waterfront homes, WaterfrontWest.com's internet traffic provides statistical data that gives a snapshot of the B.C. waterfront real estate market. Twenty percent of site's "unique visitors" are Albertans, Whiteside says. A significant number of people visit the site from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and Switzerland.
/For further information: Waterfront West is the first and only marketplace dedicated exclusively to buyers and sellers of waterfront and water view properties in British Columbia. With a wide array of informative resources and search criteria designed specifically for our audience, it is the number one resource for the BC waterfront buying community./ IN: MEDIA, TRAVEL
