Whistler Market is worst performing

Whistler market is on a downhill slide year after year for the past 5 years.  The bench mark price for a Whistler home fell 8% in the past year, 9.5% in the past 3 years, 21.5% in the past 5 years, this is according to Greater Vancouver (REBGV) statistics.  Condos on the other hand fared the worst, price declining 12.7%, 33.9% and 41.2% in the past 1 yr, 3 years, and 5 years respectively.


"Whistler is one of the best places to buy" Landcor Data Corp CEO Rudy Nielsen told BIV Vancouver.  " The market is definitely down, but you're never going to replace the best places in the world for skiing and recreational use." He added.


The key factor coud be:

- Global economic uncertainty;

- A comparative high Canadian dollar; and

- Tightened lending requirements for buying secondary homes.


However, a turnaround could be in sight as per Ann Chiasson told BIV last week that she sold a home worth $10Million even though the home was formerly listed at $15.7 Million, it's the most expensive Whistler home sales since 2009, she said.
