January & February Statistics

January & February Statistics

Thanks so much for checking in!

The market is just starting to pick up here in Whistler, Squamish, and Pemberton after a quiet couple months characterized by low sales volume.  The lower priced properties continue to be the hottest commodity for buyers. 

The Bank of Canada has chosen to hold rates yet again which is beginning to inspire confidence in buyers and even pull some off the bench!  Many are still holding their breath for a rate reduction but I have been advising buyers to act now instead of waiting for a rate drop.  I think there will be a significant increase in demand later on in 2024/early 2025 if this occurs.  One of my favourite sayings is "don't wait to buy real estate, buy real estate and wait."

The Government has also come up with some great new incentives for first time home buyers, rental building investors and new home construction.   Here's a link to a great article from one of BC's Leading Real Estate Lawyers:

Have a great March!  I'll look forward to our next update in the spring!
