Parking stalls for sale, opens up your options and is within the budget of most buyers. This is especially true when the buyer is considering spending several million dollars on a Whistler recreational home. The reality for most buyers is that the value/sq. ft. of ski-in ski-out real estate is worth it if you definitely want slopeside accommodation. However, there is a supreme lack of detached houses which are walk to the village and offer ski-in ski-out access. Therefore, buyers have to consider whether it is better to buy a house with a ski-home trail and bus or drive to the slopes, or consider other locations in Whistler. Owning a parking stall may be your solution.Continue reading “SKI-IN SKI-OUT PARKING STALLS FOR SALE”
At some point in your search, I expect you will consider ski-in ski-out luxury townhomes close to Whistler Village. This is a natural part of searching for a slopeside property in Whistler. However, it can be a disappointing process. The top developments have built the townhouses with no neighbour above or below, plus a garage to store equipment. In essence, these two factors significantly narrow the search. When you add in the third criteria of walk to Whistler Village, we are down to three developments.
Having sold real estate in Whistler since 2005, I understand that three developments are good odds of finding you a property. However, you may need to view other developments just to be sure of your options. That too, can be part of the buying process.
My role is to help you understand your options. Then, we can hone in, on the development that suits you best. I can help you become less disillusioned with your options, because you will fully understand that you cannot own what is not for sale.

Ski-in Ski-out House Close to Whistler Village
Whistler real estate offers very few ski-in ski-out houses for sale on Whistler Mountain or Blackcomb Mountain. Yet, you may be determined to purchase close to Whistler Village. If so, there are basically 10 ski-in ski-out detached houses in the Benchlands which are within walking distance to the village. Some clients are still encouraged by this. Unfortunately, I have to shatter their dreams and explain, yes there are 10 or so, but they are not for sale. In addition, the owners of these properties can basically write their own cheque, because someone always has the budget to pay for what they are selling…if they ever sold it, that is.
It is a rare event when a house is listed for sale on the slopes of Whistler or Blackcomb Mountain. 2578 Snowridge Crescent is an opportunity to own a piece of Whistler and be proud of your real estate estate decision. Real estate in Whistler has increased dramatically over the past 5 years. The fact that no more property is being built on the slopes, makes 2578 great investment sense.Continue reading “2578 SNOWRIDGE CRESCENT, WHISTLER MOUNTAIN”

The Disclosure of Representation of Trading Services Form is a mandatory form in BC. Courtesy of the BC Council of Real Estate. The form content has to be explained by the realtor, so that you are comfortable signing it. The form basically binds the realtor to you, but does not bind you to the realtor. Typically, I get into the details of the form and the buyer makes a hand motion indicating they are ready to sign it.
I look at this form as the start of a form-filled experience of buying or selling Whistler real estate. It is important to ensure that the correct form is signed at the appropriate time in the transaction, and I am all over that!
