Whistler real estate market update for August 30

Blog by Nick Swinburne | August 30th, 2012

As we get closer to the start of the school year and our thoughts move from summer to fall, Whistler continues to be a busy place.  This past weekend saw a great turn out for Whistlers first “Wanderlust” yoga and music festival; this upcoming weekend will bring a good number of visitors to the village for the labour day long weekend with events including the ‘Creekside Stampede’ and  music provided by the Whistler Summer Concert Series.  The following weekend will see 7,000+ bike riders taking part in the RBC Grand Fondo bike ride from Vancouver to Whistler.

The past 2 weeks brought 27 new listings, 24 Price changes and 17 completed sales in the Whistler real estate market. Click the following link to view: http://www.nickswinburne.com/Update 

Please contact me directly for recent sales.

Although it is unlikely that we will beat last month’s sales number of 47, August has seen a decent sales pace posting 34 sales to date.  It is worth noting that these sales numbers are similar to the summer months of 2007, which one of the best years on record.   Inventory amounts are the lowest they have been for the past 3 years, continuing to match those seen between July 2008 to January 2010.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions on the local Whistler market, and if you have family or friends who are looking into the Whistler market, please forward my contact information to them.  It would please me to be able to offer my services to them and extend a referral to you for recommending me.
