“After many red hot years the Whistler rental market has tumbled. Far more supply than demand. It is now a renters’ market. Throw in the 300 new units being turned over to locals at the Athletes Village and there is no end in sight.”

“After many red hot years the Whistler rental market (for locals, not vacationers) has tumbled. Far more supply than demand. It is now a renters’ market. Rents are dropping by the week. Two bedrooms that were renting for $2000 can be had for $1400. This will also have a spill over effect on the Squamish and Pemberton markets as commuters return to Whistler because of increased affordability. Throw in the 300 new units being turned over to locals at the Athletes Village and there is no end in sight. Not every landlord will be able to weather the soft market. It will be interesting to see if this in turn creates even more inventory for sale. The only thing I see improving the situation (for landlords) is increased tourism next winter.”
