This report shows benchmark prices for properties in Whistler, based on MLS statistics. 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.
