Good Morning!

The Linnell Group has a great Facebook contest happening this month and we just launched it this past Wednesday. Have a look here for a chance to win 2 nights at Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler during the Gran Fondo weekend in September. 

One of the criteria for entry is that you sign up for this newsletter (which you obviously already have done) so just do the other 2 steps of the contest and either comment on the post or email me back to let me know you're already receiving Friday Morning Coffee. That way we can make sure you still get entered in the contest. Good luck!

Also, I've written a blog post which outlines my opinion on how the new 15% non-resident tax on real estate purchases in Metro Vancouver will affect the Whistler market. Have a read here.

Here are the latest listings, price reductions and solds in the Whistler & Pemberton markets over the past week:

The active listing inventory in Whistler is only 252 properties on the market (down by another 9 from last week) & Pemberton is sitting at 54 active listings (up by 1 from last week). This continues to be the lowest listing inventory in Whistler since we started recording market statistics in 1998.

Our listing inventory is now at it's lowest point ever, the U.S. dollar versus the Canadian is at it's strongest point in over 10 years AND the resort has been absolutely crushing it with visits summer and winter. If you own a home or condo in Whistler and you're considering selling, CALL ME. This is your best timing in over a decade to get top dollar.

If you're coming up over the next couple of months, keep in mind that many of the properties in Whistler continue to be heavily booked with high levels of occupancy even though it's currently shoulder season. Just give me plenty of notice and Jennifer and I can check property availability for showings.

All the best,

Dean
