May 2020 The Best Time to Buy investment Real Estate in Whistler
The rental property market in Whistler is an unknown for the remainder of 2020. With a second wave of the pandemic predicted, who knows when the international tourists will start coming back to Whistler. Tourism Whistler, the marketing body, regularly publishes updates on where they are focusing their marketing dollars. From what I have read, the focus will be on provincial visitors. This might be fine for summer, but it certainly will not sustain the 2020-2021 winter season rental rates. Some owners of rental property could be in troubling times and this may mean opportunity for a buyer who is not immediately reliant on rental income.
