Greetings from Whistler and Pemberton,
We are now into the second week of Spring Break, it’s been a blast for so many families who have been trying to get here for the past 2 years. The magic of Whistler is still in the hearts of skiers and boarders! The hotel’s and condo’s are booked, the occupancy rate is climbing back to pre-covid times and the restaurants are filled, like the good old days!
Spring break is great for family time; however the market may be shifting slightly, often due to higher occupancy which means less access to view listings and this year perhaps more people are travelling other locations due to things opening up a bit. Although, we have been busy with multiple offers on some properties, it is not the case for all. It’s pretty normal for this time of the year to see more listing coming on and the numbers below are showing that. If you are thinking of putting your home or condo on the market and would like a market evaluation, just let us know. Spring is a good time to assess your real estate needs, should I sell? Should I buy?
We are here for you to work through your questions and provide you your market specific information to help make that decision.
Here are this weeks numbers for you:
Have a great week!
Lynne Venner & Tracey Cruz
Your Mother/Daughter Team

This is a turn-key property, ready for a new owner to step in and enjoy unlimited owner use and nightly rental income. The Benchlands is a true four season location with everything you could want near by – The Blackcomb Gondola, cross country skiing, golf course, Valley Trail, Lost Lake and of all of the shops, restaurants and spas in the Upper Village.

A pair of applications presented to the Village of Pemberton’s (VOP) Committee of the Whole (COW) on Jan. 18 could add two new developments inside the village’s boundaries—and hundreds of new homes.
The first, from the Skénkenam Developments General Partnership (a partnership between the Lil’wat Nation and Pemberton Benchlands Development Corporation) was for a zoning amendment related to the proposed development of the Benchlands on the northwest corner of Pemberton.
The proposal plans to extend Eagle Ridge Drive farther up the hillside, and will provide approximately 270 new single-detached and multi-family units to the community.
On the opposite side of town, between Pemberton and Mount Currie, the Redwoods development (located at 7374 Pemberton Farm Road East) proposed 176 multi-family townhouses, stacked townhouses and 2,751 square metres of commercial space on 3.3 hectares of land.
We will be keeping an eye out for updates on both projects.
