March 2024 Market Update

Sellers Indicate Strong Spring Market

March 2024 saw Sellers bringing on new listings and pricing their properties for a strong spring market. Sales from January to February increased by 55% to align with pre-COVID numbers. From January to February, new listings increased by 70% to align with COVID numbers. Listing realtors and sellers listed properties at a price that reflected a future increase in demand for March and April. In other words, new listings were priced slightly higher than recent sales, indicating seller confidence in the Whistler real estate market. Time will tell.

YouTube Channel

The current Market Update video is posted on this blog page. Each month I remove the previous month’s Market Update Video and replace it with the current video. I am not sure why you might want to view the Market Update Videos from past months or years, but if you do they are on my YouTube Channel Market Update Playlist.
