October was a very busy month for real estate in Whistler. There were a total of 101 reported transactions in Whistler and Pemberton. This is on par with what we saw in September 2014 but is an increase of about 48% over October 2013. The overall number of sales in Whistler is up 18.5% when compared to 2013.
October saw only 63 new listings in Whistler and 82 sales – this continues a three month trend where the number of sales has outpaced the number of new listings coming to market in Whistler. There are now less than 400 listings of traditional real estate available in the Whistler market.
In Pemberton there were 19 sales in October and only 10 new listings. So, the number of sales is outpacing the number of new listings in that community as well and the number of transactions so far in 2014 has increased by 64% when compared to 2013.
It the present time, 39% of all current listings available in Whistler are priced above $1,000,000. However, only 22% of our transactions in 2014 have been over the $1 Million price point. The majority of the action is happening on properties priced below $1,000,000.
As I look into my crystal ball and try to see what the future holds, here is what we expect to happen:
