So you have heard the market is crazy, but what does that mean?
The median price of a chalet home is $2.04m
The median price of a townhome is $900k
The median price of a condo is $487k

It’s a Seller’s market, due to very limited inventory. Today there are 155 listings for sale, which means as a Buyer you have 30 percent fewer choices to consider than at the same time last year. And in January 2016 there were 343 listings on the market. But the real story gets told when you look back five years ago and realize you had 4 times the amount of choices as you do today. In January 2013 we had 642 listings.

Whistler Market Update – January 2018

The report below shows benchmark prices for properties in Whistler. The HPI benchmarks represent the price of a typical property within the market. It takes into consideration what averages and medians do not – items such as lot size, age, number of rooms, etc. These features become the composite of the ‘typical house’ in a given area. Each month’s sales determine the current prices paid for bedrooms, bathrooms, fireplaces, etc. and apply those new values to the ‘typical’ house model.
If you would like to learn more about benchmark prices, follow this link for some great information.
