Greetings from Whistler and Pemberton,
Amidst the fresh snow and warmer temperatures in the mountains, if you’re looking for more than just skiing or snowboarding, there’s a plethora of activities waiting to be explored, along with incredible restaurants, shopping, and entertainment!
On the real estate front, we’ve observed an uptick in activity, marked by an increase in viewing requests from potential buyers. While mortgage brokers foresee some ongoing volatility in interest rate trends, the consensus still points towards a potential downward trend throughout the year. As rates gradually decrease, expect heightened competition for available listings. To stay ahead, consider initiating your pre-approval process now and exploring various financing options. Feel free to reach out when you’re ready to navigate these choices; we can connect you with local experts who can guide you in making well-informed decisions tailored to your situation.
A reminder that Jan 31st is your property assessment appeal deadline. Thanks to Austin Real Estate Consultants for the tips below:
