The real estate market in Whistler and Pemberton in 2022 was a bit of a roller coaster ride. The year began with strong sales, similar to what was seen in 2021. However, as the year progressed, the market saw a significant slowdown in the pace of sales but not necessarily home & condo prices.
Factors that Contributed to the Slowdown
There were several factors that contributed to this slowdown. One of the main factors was economic uncertainty. The stock market performed poorly and interest rates were on the rise, which made many buyers and sellers hesitant to make any big moves in the real estate market. Additionally, there was a misalignment of buyer and seller expectations. Buyers were looking for certain types of properties and certain price points, but sellers were often not offering what buyers were looking for.
Despite these challenges, there were still some bright spots in the Whistler and Pemberton real estate market. Luxury properties continued to sell well, and certain neighborhoods and towns within Whistler and Pemberton saw strong sales. Additionally, there were many new developments and construction projects that began in 2022, which will help to boost the market in the coming years.
