As we wrap up the first quarter of 2011, I would like to review the current sales year to date:
January: 36 Sales
February: 42 Sales
March: 48 Sales
This gives us a total of 126 sales compared to 96 for first quarter of 2010, and 77 for the first quarter of 2009.
Clearly, Buyer activity is picking up momentum. We may see some revenue generating properties come to market in the next few weeks as winter rentals wrap up, but to avoid disappointment I would advise those who are considering a Whistler purchase to put the wheels in motion, as the good deals are starting to get snapped up and some vendors are digging in their heals in terms of what they will sell for. I would also urge those requiring financing to seek a rate hold as we have seen a 35bp rise in the 5 year government yield in the past 2 weeks.
