Greetings from Whistler,
The summer is flying by, here we are already the first week of August. It is quite amazing to see the Market Place parking lot full on a Wednesday morning, so many guests all enjoying the 2 hour free parking.

You have all heard the news about the 15% non-resident vacancy tax in Vancouver, the intention is to slow down the market and let more local buyers into the market. This tax does not apply in Whistler. Non-resident buyers represent about 15 % – 20% of our buyers. Most of these buyers are buying lifestyle and they come here to experience the wonderful Whistler and Pemberton area. Our market remains the same in Whistler and Pemberton, very busy! The hot listings are selling within a week of listing and most are multiple offers, many subject free. We are providing our buyers with as much information as possible to help them be ready to write a great offer.
Call us or email if you would like more information on buying or selling in Whistler.
We hope you are enjoying your summer!
