Whistler Real Estate Blog – Events and June Market update
What’s happening in Whistler:
We have experienced very high temperatures here in Whistler for the last couple of days – maybe surprising, as we actually had a little bit of snow just a week prior! The village has been busy as ever, what once use to be the shoulder season seems to have disappeared with May and June bringing many festivals and events.Last weekend we watched in awe as hundreds of runners completed the Whistler Half Marathon – for some maybe just a warm up for the incredible running events that are coming up later this month. On June 11th Whistler is hosting the Comfortably Numb Trail Running Race, a 23km trail run with over 800m elevation gain, followed only one week later by Tough Mudder Whistler. This military-style obstacle course race will be set up at Whistler’s Olympic Park. Are you tough enough? Or maybe still thinking about it? Spectators are welcome too!
If running is not your thing there is no shortage of more relaxed events to attend. The Whistler Multicultural Festival takes place this Friday, 10 June at Florence Petersen Park. The Festival focuses on showcasing local cultures, food, music, crafts, arts, games, toys and sports to the local community. Every Sunday, the Whistler Farmer’s Market is on as it hosts many local merchants. It is set up at Blackcomb Base and is a must do for the whole family.
The Whistler Real Estate Market has been even hotter than the weather. The inventory remains low and with few properties available, many listings sell within just a few days and often in multiple offer situations.

Not surprisingly the Vancouver Real Estate Market is showing no signs of slowing down either, residential property sales on the region’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) totalled 4,769 in May 2016, an increase of 17.6 per cent from sales recorded in May 2015. Last month’s sales were 35.3 per cent above the 10-year sales average for the month and rank as the highest sales total on record for May. See the full stats package here.
