A new website created to enhance the public’s real estate experience has been launched by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB). The website ( was designed to deliver larger amounts of real estate information to the general public. The original VIREB website had been in use virtually unchanged except for content since its launch in 2006, says the board. The new website incorporates a broader range of information options for users not available in the older site – such as access to VIREB’s social media presence and more information concerning Realtors and the impact they have in their community.
Another major benefit this website has over the previous one is the development of an interactive open house module, a free service for the public. Interested users go to the main VIREB site and then click on the large ‘Open House’ button to be taken to a separate page where interactive tools allow users to select specific regions on Vancouver Island when searching for upcoming open houses.
