Hello,
I am stumped at how to display two different types of markers.
Example: I have a map displaying homes for sale(green markers), no problem.
I would like to display sold homes (red markers) at the same time.
 how do I differentiate the two types?

here is the code:
<script type="text/javascript">   
      
 <cfoutput>     

function LoadMap() {
	var locations = new Array(
    #REReplace(str, ",$", "")#
        );
	var markers = new Array()
	var mapOptions = {
		center: new google.maps.LatLng(49.3536595, -123.2449326),
		zoom: 12,
		mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
		scrollwheel: false
    };



    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), mapOptions);

    $.each(locations, function(index, location) {
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
            map: map,
            icon: 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent.png'
        });
		
		
		

	
		var myOptions = {
	        content: '<div class="infobox"><div class="image"><img src="mls_pics/all_type/img-' + location[5] + '_1.jpg" width="80" alt="' + location[2] + '"></div><div class="title"><a href="featuredlistingdetail.cfm?sysid=' + location[5] + '">' + location[2] + '</a></div><div class="area"><span class="key">Area:</span><span class="value">' + location[3] + 'ft<sup>2</sup></span></div><div class="price">' + location[4] + '</div><div class="link"><a href="featuredlistingdetail.cfm?sysid=' + location[5] + '">View more</a></div></div>',
	        maxWidth: 0,
	        pixelOffset: new google.maps.Size(-146, -190),
	        zIndex: null,
	        closeBoxURL: "",
	        infoBoxClearance: new google.maps.Size(1, 1),
	        position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
	        isHidden: false,
	        pane: "floatPane",
	        enableEventPropagation: false
	    };
		
	    marker.infobox = new InfoBox(myOptions);
		marker.infobox.isOpen = false;
		
		
	    var myOptions = {
	        draggable: true,
			content: '<div class="marker"><div class="marker-inner"></div></div>',
			disableAutoPan: true,
			pixelOffset: new google.maps.Size(-21, -58),
			position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
			closeBoxURL: "",
			isHidden: false,
			// pane: "mapPane",
			enableEventPropagation: true
	    };
	    marker.marker = new InfoBox(myOptions);
		marker.marker.open(map, marker);
		markers.push(marker);

        google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function (e) {
            var curMarker = this;

            $.each(markers, function (index, marker) {
                // if marker is not the clicked marker, close the marker
                if (marker !== curMarker) {
                    marker.infobox.close();
                    marker.infobox.isOpen = false;
                }
            });


            if(curMarker.infobox.isOpen === false) {
                curMarker.infobox.open(map, this);
                curMarker.infobox.isOpen = true;
                map.panTo(curMarker.getPosition());
            } else {
                curMarker.infobox.close();
                curMarker.infobox.isOpen = false;
            }

        });
    });
}

function InitMap() {
	google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', LoadMap);
}
</cfoutput>
</script>

The locations which you are iterating, based on it status (Available/Sold), you can apply the iconFile.

Use http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/ms/icons/red-dot.png to display sold homes  
Use http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/ms/icons/green-dot.png to display homes for sale

Using marker.setIcon(iconFile), you can set different markers as per your requirement.

Assuming the locations array has an index that would yield the value of the active/sold column. Let's say that index is 3, then:
$.each(locations, function(index, location) {
        var icon_path = (location[3] == "active") ? 'marker-1.png' : 'marker-2.png';
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
            map: map,
            icon: icon_path
        });
