This past weekend was another good one here in town. Restaurants and retailers were busy with a good number of visitors strolling the village and enjoying themselves. The start of the week was a little too warm on the mountain for my tastes but by Sunday we saw a fairly sizable storm come through the valley giving us a very large helping of frosted flakes on Monday morning. It was a great way to start this week.In the past 7 days we have had 36 new listings come to market, 23 price reductions and 13 sales compared to the 17 New Listings, 31 price reductions and 17 sales that we saw the previous week.Please click here to view the past weeks new listings and price changes as reported by the Whistler Listing System.

Good Morning!   Well it looks like the crowds are back once again for Presidents Week here in Whistler. We took the kids up the mountain for a bit of a ski yesterday and it was a very busy day up there. Just walking around in the Village this morning also confirmed that the place is packed! I've really noticed this winter that the U.S. visitors seem to have come back north of the border with a vengeance. Check out this recent article from the Whistler Question. Destination visits are up 31% over the winter of 2010.   Notable New Listings 1742 Pinewood Drive is back on the market at the incredible price of $434,000. This is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath court-ordered sale in a very desirable neighbourhood in Pemberton. I dare you to build this house for that kind of money in today's market. #40...

I suppose from the outside looking in you’d think that the walls would be falling in on our little resort town in light of the financial crisis and the credit crunch that the U.S. is experiencing. There isn’t much doubt that we have indeed been feeling some of the effects of the slowdown in the U.S economy but all is not lost if you are thinking of buying or selling in Whistler! We have to take a minute and really look at what’s going on here and take a moment to determine what our goals are. I have always asked my clients what their objectives were for purchasing real estate here in Whistler. Are you looking for a property that is showing excellent rental income? Are you purchasing because the lifestyle is your priority? Are you looking for a long term gain in capital appreciation? Le...

This is my first time setting up a blog, so I  hope it becomes a useful place where you can rely on getting the latest information on the market in Whistler and any juicy bits of real estate info that I am able to share with you from time to time!  Whistler Resort is currently preparing to host the Winter Olympics in 2010, planning and construction of many of the new venues is underway, with the development of the new bob/luge operation on Blackcomb Mountain to the upgrades on the Downhill run on Whistler Mountain. The development of the new Athletes Village and the Callaghan Nordic Centre are also well underway.  We are experiencing one of the best ski seasons in the resorts' history with over 30 feet of snow to date!  The first stats I want to provide you with are the current up to da...
