Arrowhead Point, 4890 Painted Cliff Road, Whistler, B.C.

“Arrowhead Point is a very popular development. The townhouses typically sell for less than property located on the side of the ski-slopes, and Arrowhead Point is located a short walk away from the public access on to Merlin’s Run which ends up at the Wizard Chair. There is also a good ski-in trail which comes right into Arrowhead Point, which is very convenient. Some of the townhouses have a west-facing deck which is above the trees, so you can get great afternoon sunlight.” – Marion.

About Arrowhead Point

Mountainside town-homes located less than 50 metres from the slopes of Blackcomb Mountain with ski-in access. Each property has wood finishings and features a living room with a cozy river rock gas fireplace. Most units have a private, outdoor hot tub. I have included Arrowhead Point in the ski-in ski-out group as it is so close to the slopes it just has to be included, and it has the ski-in to the complex.  Arrowhead Point usually sells a little less per sq. ft. than those developments which are both ski-in and ski-out. The layout of the complex is very neatly organized and should be on your list for comparison sake, if nothing else.

All new listings and price changes which each listing agent posts on the WLS are re-posted on the Whistler Ski in Ski out Twitter, Facebook and Google+ pages, along with the listing broker information.

Non-resident of Canada buying Whistler real estate

It is very simple to buy a property in Whistler when you are a non-resident. I have copied pg 7 of the Buyer’s Guide (see table of contents above) which was supplied by a local law firm, Race & Co., so you can read the section on non-residents. Their advice is to open a bank account in Canada as soon as you start thinking about buying a property.  Also, have a lawyer notarize your identification, well in advance of purchasing…I will walk you through this when we connect.

Please note, this is the same example posted on each page. If you want more information or want to see where the figures came from, please contact me, Marion Anderson at 604 938 3885. I am happy to email them to you, and give you an overview of how I compiled them and interpret them for you.

Arrowhead Point is in a good location for rentals, and the private hot tub is a draw. The bus service to the Village means that the renters don’t have to rent a vehicle, so that is another plus.  You can use any rental management company you wish, or you can self-manage your condo, if you have the motivation. For nightly rental rates on this property and other ski-in ski-out properties your best bet is to check out www.AlluraDirect.com and the other nightly, rental by owner sites.  Return to table of contents

The Real Estate Council of BC (RECBC) does not permit real estate agents to post all the details on real estate sales. If you want to view past sales, which you should do if you are thinking of buying any property, then contact me, Marion Anderson at Marion@myseatosky.com (604) 938-3885; A public website to look at is www.BCAssessment.ca. This site is initially a little tricky to navigate, but it will give you the current year and last year’s assessed value of the property, and the sales over the past year.

When the terms and conditions have been removed on each transaction, but the property has not changed title, the sales information is posted on WLS by the listing agent.  I re-post this information on the Whistler Ski in Ski out social media pages of Twitter, Facebook and Google+. That is a good way for you to track Whistler ski-in ski-out sales activity. Click the social media icons on the left and it should lead you to my social media pages, and then follow or like as directed. Return to table of contents.

Ski-in ski-out access for Arrowhead Point

Arrowhead Point is just across the road from the Painted Cliff complex, which is touted as one of the best ski-in ski-out locations in Whistler.  I have included Arrowhead Point in the ski-in ski-out group as it is so close to the slopes it just has to be included.  The ski-in trail, which is not groomed or maintained, is beside #10 Arrowhead, which is at the north end of the complex (furthest away from the road). In Spring, the Blackcomb Mountain, world-class groomers do a great job of moving snow around on these lower slopes.  This means that the properties located on Blackcomb Mountain remain a true ski-in and ski-out even if the snow has started to disappear from the lower slopes in Spring. However, you may not be able to use the ski-in trail to Arrowhead Point, which is never groomed. Return to table of contents.

I like my clients to read the strata minutes before writing an offer so that we know of any assessments coming down, and so that if there is a Depreciation Report, my clients have a good understanding of future repairs. Return to table of contents.

TW Tourism Whistler Fee*

Tourism Whistler has provided a detailed document which answers the question, “What are TW fees?” These fees are paid by each owner of a property located on Resort Land. The document also provides an overview on the purpose of Tourism Whistler. Make sure you refer to the page entitled: Resort Land Properties Subject to Restrictive Covenants for a list of properties in Whistler which have a rental restriction. Pertaining to this website, it means that for the owners in the Aspens, Le Chamois, Telemark and Woodrun, even if you live in the property, you still have to pay a commercial TW fee. For all other ski-in ski-out properties on this site, you would get a break on the commercial fees, as the other properties on this site are not subject to the restrictive covenant with rental pool requirements.
