Whistler real estate weekly market update report

Blog by Nick Swinburne | May 29th, 2012

Hello everyone,

Whistler wrapped up a pretty busy memorial day US long weekend yesterday.  It was great to see the Washington and Oregon license plates around town.  Everywhere is starting to look more and more like summer each day; the golfing is good, mountain biking starting to get going - still a lot of snow up there.  Speaking of snow... yesterday did mark the completion of another great ski season in Whistler.  The mountain was full of skiers and riders sporting good costumes and smiling faces.

Overall the market continues to move along at a decent pace.   We continue to see a greater number of listings than sales, continuing to keep Whistler in a Buyer’s Market scenario.

This past week brought 25 new listings, 18 price reductions and 15 sales to market compared to the previous week of 28 new listings, 14 price reductions and 14 sales. 

Please click here to view the past week’s new listings and price changes as reported by the Whistler Listing System.  Please contact me for the sales.

I have started a separate “picks of the Week” page on www.nickswinburne.com.   I will be adding new properties to this as the week progresses and blogging on them if time permits so check the site when you can.

I have wrapped up a number of sales this past week ranging from 2 bedroom ski in/out, to a great 1/4 share in Horstman House.  I continue to see good value in this market considering there is a 8,000sq acre ski/ mountain biking/hiking playground in your back yard.

If you have friends or family who would like more information on these or other Whistler opportunities, please forward my contact information to them.  I would welcome the chance to help them call Whistler ‘Home’ and extend a referral to you.

Thank you,
