NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- PropertyShark.com, the premier real estate data site, announces 'Singles' maps that highlight pockets of rich, single men and women in major cities throughout the United States, including New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, Boston, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Seattle.

The 'mash-up maps' display neighborhoods that are color-coded based on the average income and availability of single men and women in an area. So for example, women looking for high percentages of single men with incomes over $100,000 might try the Upper West Side of Manhattan or the area between Pacific Palisades and Malibu in Los Angeles. To find wealthy single women, the Madison Park area of Seattle and Miami Beach look promising.

"While the rich singles maps are obviously helpful to identify a dating pool of successful and available singles by neighborhood, these maps collectively are also very useful to anyone looking to develop new real estate projects, open a store, hire employees, or do business in neighborhoods with substantial buying power," said Matthew Haines, founder of PropertyShark.com.

"Using PropertyShark.com, a single woman could quickly locate a neighborhood with an abundance of wealthy single men, one which also has low crime, good schools, and appreciating home prices, making her next move an informed decision rather than a random one" said Ryan Slack, chief executive officer, PropertyShark.com. "The map was initially created as a 'gift' for our publicist, Kelly Kreth, a single woman living in Manhattan. Once she saw it she realized its huge potential to help other singles throughout the country and we rolled them out nationwide."

"While the idea started out almost as a joke, when my client, PropertyShark.com, presented it to me, I realized its value for other singles. I actually did meet a man from an area highlighted on the map as having an abundance of rich, single men, and while the relationship did not work out, the map helped me find an area of my neighborhood that would have suitable men to date," says Kelly Kreth, president, Kreth Communications, publicist to PropertyShark.com.
