Whistler Friday Morning Coffee - August 19, 2016
I apologize for the late email today. I've been at a huge real estate conference in Las Vegas all week and am sitting in McCarran Airport waiting for a flight back to Vancouver via San Francisco right now. Better late than never right?
Did you hear the big news about Vail buying Whistler Blackcomb?... Well it's true. We wrote a blog post this week giving you the full details on this mega buyout and what it means for our not so little mountain town. Click here to have a look at the post.
Also, you still have a chance to jump into our big Facebook contest if you haven't already. It's still on until the end of August. Have a look here for a chance to win 2 nights at Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler during the Gran Fondo weekend in September.
Keep in mind that 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!
Our Whistler Tour of Homes video series took a one month summer vacation but is back. See below for a quick tour of #20 Pioneer Junction in Pemberton.
A quick update on our 3 most recent listings:
- #20 Pioneer Junction in Pemberton has received multiple over asking offers and is now under contract
- #524 Lost Lake Lodge is still available (1 bedroom top floor - vaulted ceilings)
- #202 Lost Lake Lodge (one bedroom) is still available

The active listing inventory in Whistler is only 264 properties on the market (up by just 10 from last week) & Pemberton is sitting at 70 active listings (up by 4 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 given that we're deep into our busy summer season here. Just give me plenty of notice and Jennifer and I can check property availability for showings.
All the best,
