As you read this, hundreds of excited skiers and snowboarders are uploading the Whistler Village gondola to take in the first turns of the season. That's right -- Opening Day is upon us! Whistler Mountain is opening today, a week ahead of schedule, and Blackcomb Mountain is not far behind, with a scheduled opening date of November 26.
Down in the valley, the Whistler real estate market continues to charge ahead at full speed. Inventory remains a challenge -- listings are selling at an incredibly fast pace. If you're thinking of listing your Whistler, Pemberton, or Squamish property for sale -- or know someone who is -- I'd love to chat!
Now, to get you up to speed: here's what's happened in the market over the past two weeks.
- 34 new properties have been listed for sale, representing a huge range of property types. We've got everything from Phase II one-bedroom condos to a 5,000 SF home up in Kadenwood (pictured below), an exclusive neighbourhood with its own private gondola!
- 44 properties sold, which is quite high for Whistler -- things are definitely NOT slowing down! 40% of these sales were listed for sale in October or November of this year, a sign that listings aren't sticking around for very long.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me about recent sales, new listings, or anything else pertaining to your Whistler real estate needs!
