Whistler Market Update: July 2017

Date Posted: July 18, 2017

With nothing but blue skies and warm weather in the forecast, Whistler has been a hub of activity. From the beaches to the trails to the Village Stroll, one word can describe our summer so far and that is busy. The same word could also be used to describe the real estate market so far this year. With so many people in town, it is no surprise that buyer interest is strong. Our main hurdle right now is a lack of options for all the interested buyers. This combination is creating a strong seller’s market.

Despite the fact that low inventory levels have capped the number and rate of sales through the first 6 months of 2017, sales activity has remained strong and we expect that 2017 will close out as another above average year in terms of both sales and values.

Where are we now?

Overall, we have seen a dramatic increase (f almost 35%) in the total value of all transactions completed through the first two quarters of 2017 when compared to the previous six month period. This is partially due to an increase in the overall transaction value of properties in Whistler which is now sitting at $1,144,309 (a 26% increase compared to one year ago when the average transaction value was $904,360).

Let’s break the numbers down:

  • Single-Family Homes: The average sale price is now $2,729,000
  • Townhomes: The average sale price is now $1,060,419
  • Condos: The average sale price is now $611,081

These increases can be partially attributed to a shift in focus towards higher priced properties due to lack of options in lower price ranges, as well as to upward pressure on prices across the board. The luxury market (listings over $2 Million) currently makes up about 13% of all transactions occurring in Whistler.

Listings that are priced correctly continue to sell quickly and often with multiple offers.

What is to come?

We do not expect there to be any dramatic shifts in the coming months. The market will likely continue to deal with a low supply, high demand dynamic that will limit the number of transactions and drive sales prices.

Looking at general and local economic conditions, we are confident that buyer/investor confidence in the area will remain strong and that changes to interest rates will have a limited impact (if any) on our marketplace. We also doubt that the change in the provincial government will result in any changes that would compromise Whistler’s contribution to the tourism brand of BC.

With amazing an summer still ahead and exciting changes coming for Vail’s first full winter season, there should be no drop in buyer interest in our area.

If you have been thinking of buying or selling, contact me any time to find out how the current real estate market will impact you.

Pemberton Market Update: July 2017

Date Posted: July 17, 2017

Through the first 6 months of 2017, the Pemberon real estate market faced circumstances similar to those being seen throughout the Sea to Sky Corridor – namely a lack of listing inventory and growing buyer interest. As a result, the Pemberton market has seen an overall slowing in the number of sales, a rise in average transaction values, and a reduction in ‘Days on Market’.

Where are we now?

Despite the fact that the number of transactions happening in Pemberton  has remained relatively consistent, total activity levels in have decreased compared to a year ago,. This is due to a lack of properties available for sale, and not due to a lack of buyer demand (which continues to grow).

Over the course of the first half of 2017, we saw a total of approximately $40,000,000 worth of property change hands in Pemberton with an average overall transaction value of $459,600 (a 6% increase in average value). Individually, almost all segments of the Pemberton real estate market saw increased average values. As for buyers, the trend has been towards more affordable properties – both in the Village and the surrounding areas.

Breaking down the numbers into the various sub-markets, the current average transaction values are:

  • Single-Family Homes: $669,000 (10% higher than the start of the year)
  • Townhomes: $467,500
  • Condos: $327,800
  • Acreages: $822,800 (a slight decrease since the start of the year that can be attributed to the types of sales that generally occur a the start of the year vs. those at the end of the year in Pemberton rather than an indication of a systemic drop in value)

In looking at these numbers, it is important to note that the Pemberton market is small (and could even be called a ‘micro’ market) and as a result, the amount of sales data that is available at this time of the year is very limited. So, property values can deviate from these prices significantly especially when you consider the wide range of features, locations, and property-types these general categories encompass.

What is to come?

There are some medium and low density buildings and developments on the horizon for Pemberton. We expect these to hit the market in the next 12 to 18 months. Nevertheless, the market will continue to favour seller (with prices trending upwards) for the foreseeable future with only affordability concerns (one of the biggest drivers for many buyers in Pemberton) the only thing likely to temper the current climate.If you have been thinking of buying or selling in Pemberton, contact me today for the most up-to-date information and to discuss how the current state of the market might impact your decisions.
