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!

Best regards,

Matt

November has a reputation for being a quieter month in Whistler, but there's actually a lot going on this month. Cornucopia, Whistler's food and wine (and so much more) festival, kicks offtomorrow and continues through to next weekend. Whistler Blackcomb's Opening Day is scheduled for November 26, but who knows -- with all the snow we've been getting on the mountains, they could surprise us with an early opening. 

As our famous snow season approaches, a lot of people start contemplating a Whistler property purchase -- maybe in time to have a home base for the upcoming holidays. If you've got Whistler on the mind, let's talk. Meanwhile, here's what's happened in the market over the past two weeks.

  • 39 new properties have been listed for sale -- up considerably from the 27 we saw in my last newsletter. All but seven of these new listings clock in under $1 million, including a relatively inexpensive chalet in Emerald Estates, listed at only $789,000.
  • 39 properties sold, which is actually the exact same figure we saw two weeks ago. Two major trends continue: properties are selling faster and faster, and the gap between the list price and sales price is becoming increasingly narrow.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me about recent sales, new listings, or anything else pertaining to your Whistler real estate needs!

Best regards,

Matt
