BCrea Market Intelligence Report

In light of the current virus situation, spring is going to arrive a little earlier for us this year. Historically it is normal for us in Whistler to see a slow down in sales activity when the ski season winds down.

I tend to agree with the latest report as you will read below from the BC real estate association that we will anticipate a pick up in sales activity once things normalize again in the latter half of the year. Both Jamie and I are still working and available to discuss the market with you at your convenience.

Stay healthy and enjoy some of the simple pleasures in life; home cooking and outdoor activities (at safe distances, of course!).
