One of the most frequently asked questions that I get about real estate is "Who is buying property in Whistler?" The answer, which often surprises people, is that buyers in Whistler are mostly from BC.
This graphic represents buyers in Whistler in January 2023.
- 63% of buyers came from BC
- 6% of buyers from the rest of Canada, in this case Ontario.
- 19% of buyers were from the US
- 13% of buyers were from overseas.
This is a metric that I will be tracking to see how the foreign home buyers ban may potentially affect the international buyers market in Whistler, now that foreign buyers have been locked out purchasing real estate in large cities for the next two years.
Below is a breakdown of where buyers came from in 2022.
- 86% of buyers were Canadian
- 9% from the US
- 1% from Mexico
- 4% from overseas
