Locals and visitors alike are taking any opportunity to squeeze in those last summer activities while we still can. Mountain biking and golf are great this time of year! As the leaves start to turn, our minds quickly shift to the excitement of snow falling. I'm already thinking about my new pair of skis...
And how’s the Whistler real estate market you ask?
Feverish demand and all-time low levels of housing inventory continue to be the theme for Whistler’s real estate market. As Canadians continue to feel insecure about the future of international travel, they are still looking to Whistler to spend their hard-earned savings. Desirable listings sell within a matter of days so buyers need to be prepared to act fast to secure the property they want.
Housing is a hot topic for the upcoming election, with all major parties making promises around drastic changes to try to improve the housing crisis. Whistler has now surpassed $1 billion in dollar volume traded this year-to-date, setting 2021 up to be the biggest sales year yet.

Stay safe & live well.
