Real Estate Market Report: Pemberton

Date Posted: July 29, 2015

6-Month Review: 2015

Like the Whistler market, the Pemberton real estate market continues to move along at a strong and steady pace. Growth is hindered most by the small size of the market and the limited options currently available for sale. That said, buyer interest continues to be strong and is spread across all market segments.

The first 6 months of 2014 was the most active period the Pemberton real estate market had experienced since 2010. Both the number of transactions and the overall average transaction value of a purchase so far in 2015 remain on par with the same 6-moth period last year.

Single-family homes continue to be the strongest market segment in Pemberton. Average transaction values by property type are currently sitting at:

  • Single-Family Home: $524,308
  • Townhouse: $309,808
  • Condominium: $204,846

With an almost 0% vacancy rate, the Pemberton real estate market has become an attractive purchase for investors. However, the majority of buyers continue to look for well located, good value properties that are suitable for a young family.

The velocity of sale for recreational property and larger acreages, tends to be slower despite continued interest. These are often discretionary purchases with unique characteristics.

At this time, there are no plans in place for new developments, nor are there any buildings currently under construction. Therefore, properties that are new to the market should experience immediate attention and, if priced correctly, they may sell quickly.

Buyer options are often limited by lack of inventory so they should be ready to act quickly if they find the right property.

It is important to stay informed of the daily changes in the Pemberton real estate market so that you don’t miss opportunities.

All stats are deemed to be accurate and taken from the Whistler Listing System (June 2015)

Real Estate Market Report: Whistler

Date Posted: July 23, 2015

6-Month Review: 2015

So far in 2015, the real estate market in Whistler continues to move along at a strong but steady pace. The market closed out June as the 8th consecutive quarter of strong activity. Overall, the total number of transactions so far in 2015 has matched that of the same 6-month period in 2014. We think that we can safely assume that the real estate market in Whistler has fully recovered.

Due to the consistent number of sales, as well as lower than usual inventory, prices have trended higher so far this year. The average value for a transaction is currently sitting at $834,000, this is an increase of 8.5% since January 2015. The overall value of all the transactions that have occurred so far in Whistler this year has increased 26%.

Number of Active Listings Whistler Real Estate June 2015 Amber Mann

Buyers in Whistler continue to be interested in townhomes but, due to low inventory levels, we have seen a 20% reduction in the number of transactions since last year. As townhome buyers look to find their ‘perfect property’ many have been forced to look at alternatives in the higher price ranges. The has resulted in an increase of 12% (to $782,708) in average transaction value.

A stand-out so far in 2015 has been the single-family home market where we have seen the highest level of activity. Average transaction values in this market segment currently sit at $1,807,000.

Also experienced renewed interest and growth is the building lot/vacant land portion of the market. As purchasers struggle to find exactly what they are looking for in terms of lower priced homes and properties suitable for renovation, many are choosing to purchase and build. The average transaction value for vacant land is currently sitting at $1,293,000.

Saying largely unchanged, the condominium market continues to move along at a stead and mostly unchanging pace with the average value for a transaction sitting at $393,959.

Number of Sales Whistler Real Estate June 2015 Amber Mann

2015 year-to-date is on pace to match the 2014 total.

Right now we are finding that demand is high and choices are not necessarily abundant so many sellers are receiving offers quickly on properties that are well priced. Buyers are usually very well informed when it comes to values and proper pricing is the key to selling success.

When buyers find the right property in this market it is important for them to be ready as the best opportunities are moving quickly.

The market is changing almost daily as new listings and sales occur so it is important to stay informed in order to be successful as a buyer or a seller in our unique marketplace.
