The September 2020 Whistler market update video examines August’s sales, new listings, inventory and the sales to active listings ratio. These statistics were provided by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, of which Whistler is a member.
Effect of Covid on Whistler Real Estate in September 2020
The graphs below compare each week in 2020 to 2019 for sales and new listings in Whistler. When we compare 2020 to 2019 YTD (September 1st) sales are only 5% below last year. In addition, when we compare the same period of time for new listings, we have only 7% more listings in 2020 to 2019. Therefore, 2020 is on trend to match 2019.
The above graph showing the number of new listings each week in 2020 over the same week in 2019. It looks to me that in August all those sellers who decided not to list when Covid shut us down, have now caught up with the market. In addition, the year to date statistics concur with that reasoning.

It’s a Good Life in Whistler!
