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!
