There are now a total of 371 listings in Whistler (all types of properties including timeshares and parking stalls) and a total of 82 listings in Pemberton – a slight increase in inventory in Whistler and a slight decrease in inventory in Pemberton.  Unlike Metro Vancouver, we are not seeing a significant increase in listings in Whistler and Pemberton and in certain areas and in certain product types there is still very little to choose from.  We are seeing single family homes sit on the market for more days but well priced one, two and three bedroom townhomes and condos are selling relatively quickly, as are the hotel strata condos, if they are generating a good revenue return. 

The statistics attached show the total dollar volume of sales and number of sales in each category - chalets (single family homes), condominiums, Phase 1 condos, Phase 2 condos, duplexes, shared ownership, town-homes and vacant lots.  It also has the total of all of these categories.  This includes all sales reported by all of the real estate companies in Whistler.

Metro Vancouver - May saw a modest increase in home sales in Metro Vancouver with sales eclipsing 2,000 for the first time this year but overall the market in Metro Vancouver is still slow and seeing downward pressure on home prices.   Ashley Smith, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver president said “Whether you’re a buyer looking to make an offer or a seller looking to list your home, getting your pricing right is the key in today’s market”.   Her comments also apply to the Whistler market.    Bryan Yu, deputy chief economist of Central 1 Credit Union recently reported that recreational sales were seeing a knock-on effect from the slowdown in the Metro Vancouver housing market.   He said that “The slowing of the market in Metro Vancouver means that homeowners feel a little less wealthy, especially if they have detached homes, and that in turn will lower demand for secondary homes in other markets.   These markets are all interrelated”.
