Pemberton Market Update: January 2018

Date Posted: January 20, 2018

2017 Year In Review

Throughout 2017, Pemberton continued to attract first-time home buyers, recreational enthusiasts, investors, and those looking for price points no longer available in Whistler. Increased awareness, good values compared to other Sea to Sky markets, affordability, and a relaxed lifestyle continue to be the main attractants for purchasers in Pemberton.

As a result of increasing demand combined with low numbers of available listings resulted in an overall 8% increase in average transaction value and significant price appreciation in almost all market segments.

In Pemberton, the more affordable properties (condos and towhomes) continues to draw the highest levels of interest as these properties appeal to young families and first-time buyers, and are rarely available in Whistler and Squamish right now.

Breaking down the numbers by market segment:

  • Single-Family Homes: Average price increased by 27.5% to $816,907.
  • Townhouses: Average price increased by 21% to $478,987
  • Condos: Average price increased by 32% to $334,911

It is important to note that for the first time, 2017 saw a number of individual transactions exceeding $1 Million for a single-family home. Acreage properties, continue to be of interest to to high net worth individuals, a new generation of agricultural enthusiasts, and families capitalizing on the real estate markets in Vancouver and Whistler although the number of sales remains too small to draw reliable statistical information.

New Developments

With new subdivisions at Sunstone selling our, and most of the remaining lots at the Benchlands now sold, the new residential developments in Pemberton attracted strong buyer interest throughout 2017. Given the strong sales activity for these single-family building lots, we can expect 2018 to be a busy year for builders in Pemberton.

2017 also brought increased commercial investment to the community. The Pemberton Industrial Park is now a hive of activity and construction and there are several new rental buildings getting ready for occupants.

In 2018, we expect to see a number of announcements for new projects as Sunstone and the start of construction at Crestline.

2018: What We Expect

As is the case in Whistler and Squamish, the number of properties available for purchase is at historically low levels while buyer interest remains high. Therefore, we expect that 2018 will continue to support upward pressure of prices.

New mortgage / financing rules, interest rate changes, and the outcome of future housing development in Whistler may all impact the market, but, until these issues have become more defined, the future looks bright for Pemberton.

The Pemberton real estate market truly is a micro market so individual sales and valuations may vary widely from the ‘norm’ so it is important to evaluate each property  individually. If you are interested in selling and wondering what your property might be worth, or if you are looking to buy and wondering how the market will impact you, contact me and I would be happy to discuss the current market situation with 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.
