Whistler homes, condos and townhome new listings and market update for April 29

April 29th, 2013
This past week I have had the pleasure of enjoying the sand, surf and sun just north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  The last time I was here was in 2008 and the amount of development along this part of the coast continues at a strong pace - the quote from 'Field of Dreams' of 'If you build it, they will come' is certainly true here and we are enjoying beautiful weather, great hospitality and sm ...

April 26th, 2013

The latest GDP numbers from the UK showed positive economic growth although just barely at 0.3% growth.   This was enough to strengthen the pound by over 1% against the US dollar.  Jobless numbers in Spain are now over 27%. However, there is renewed hope that the European Central Bank will cut interest rates next week to provide more stimulus to the region's economies.

Improving employment n ...

Whistler homes, condos and townhome new listings and market update for April 22

April 22nd, 2013
What a beautiful day we are enjoying here in Whistler. With World Ski and Snowboard festival wrapped up on Sunday, the village will seem unusually 'unbusy' for the next few weeks. That said, the skiing and riding is still good and the mountain bike trails and golf courses are starting to look ready to enjoy.  It also means that getting in to view properties will be a lot easier.

This past week ...

McLean's market musings for April 18

April 18th, 2013

Lower than expected growth in China caused markets to reduce positions in commodity heavy countries, such as Canada, earlier this week.  While the latest numbers showed growth in China at 7.7%, which is still very high compared to most industrialized nations, this is a lower number than expected for a country that is one of the global economic drivers.

The US economy remains on track with posi ...

Hello from Whistler.  I trust everyone had a great weekend and you are off to a good start for the week.  We continue to see signs of winter here in the valley and the reports of fresh snow this past weekend would make you think that ski season is just starting.  This week marks the continuation of the World Ski and Snowboard festival here in Whistler.  It's always a great event and a fun way ...

McLeans Market musings for April 11

In Europe, the continued availability of low interest loans is providing optimism that economic growth still has a chance.   After a number of years of failed austerity policies, anything that can promote positive economic growth is a welcome sight to the beleaguered European economy.    The bailout of Cyprus continues and although the negative headlines continue to worry some, the relatively ...

April 8th, 2013
Just when we though spring was here, this weekend saw continued snow accumulations in the high alpine on Whistler and Blackcomb.  Although the official amount was only 8cm, sources on the mountain tell me 20cm - 25cm was more realistic.  Today we are greeted with beautiful day here in the valley.  The Whistler new listings remain the same this week compared to last, giving us 12 new propertie ...
