First Opens of August

This weekend I'm thrilled to be hosting Opens at 2 iconic neighborhoods in Whistler, the Benchlands on Blackcomb and Alpine Meadows.

First up, on Saturday at 10:30 I can be found just off Painted Cliff Road, at well sized 2 bed | 2 bath. The location- ski-in-ski out, will not see the new owners require a vehicle during their stay- park downstairs in gated convenience, and enjoy walking to the village from the pathway. Comfort and casual luxury exudes from this well appointed Phase 1 townhome. Large bedrooms, and freshly installed flooring are just some of the attributes of this priced to move investment, home away from home, or home. #30 Foxglove - see you Saturday- priced at  $1.749 Listed by Dean Linnell, Whistler Real Estate Ltd. 

Sunday morning in Alpine Meadows- perfect start to the day! This property is super unique, and has some really valuable attributes that a local buyer, or weekend recreationalist family will find compelling. 

8167 Alpine Way is the perfect potential alternative to a townhouse or condo, and has an extremely functional layout. Flooded in natural light, the views of the surrounding mountains set the scene for this sophisticated and inviting residence. 

-11,252 foot relatively flat, grassy lot
-2 bed / 1.5 bed home up, with a 1-bed suite below which is generating $2000/mth rent (with incredible renters!)
-Build up to almost 4000/ft, so still another 2200~ can be added to the existing home, or as an auxiliary home or infill-housing

I’ll be onsite Sunday 10-12 to show this gorgeous residence- at $2.595 this is excellent value in Alpine!

July in Resort

What a stunning month we've had in Whistler! 

What started a little cool and rainy gave way to a glorious BC Long Weekend with temperatures hovering in the mid 30's- that's over 90 for those south of the border! Our lakes and beaches were filled, and each day the views were spectatular with the most colorful assortment of floatillas; from unicorns and flamigos to the more typical paddleboards and kyaks- truly perfect summer days! 

 The month in real estate slowed significantly- as if all just wanted to bask in the summer days. With our inventory rising now 308; 236 in Whistler and 72 in Pemberton respectively, July 2022 was the slowest sale activity in 10 years. The summer months are historically low, but this was certainly notable. A component can certainly be pegged to the increase in rates; this broadly created a 'wait and see' element for some buyers. 

Supply will never dramatically increase in Whistler, and if property worth is evaluated- even just for the past decade, consistent and considerable appreciation has occured in all segments. Thus, if you have the need, the ability and desire to move, then the time-tested & proven statement, "Forget trying to time the market, and focus on time in the market" still holds true. Plus its backed by decades of data.

August gives way to some outstanding events we are so looking forward to having back to resort- Crankworks- starting today, will absolutely bring spirit and fun, and next week I can't wait for Art on the Lake.  The summer concert series is on each weekend, and can't forget some good old patio sessions for Happy Hour!
