Real Estate Year in Review: 2021

What a year 2021 was for Real Estate at Big White Ski Resort! The resort faced many challenges from new covid protocols, major highway closures, and fires threatening the area but has persevered and continues to remain strong.

2021 Year in Review

251 deals were completed during 2021, a jump from the 213 in 2020 but fairly on par. This final number includes lots, single family homes and condos.

Another noticeable jump we saw was the average sale price. In 2020 it was $469,721 and last year, 2021 the average sale price was $516,184. An increase that many owners are happy to see – whether its their investment property or family vacation home.

Even with the average sale price hovered around half a million, we did see studio units go for under 100k! On the flipside we also saw luxury chalets go for over 1.5 million. The gap between highest and lowest sale price is good to see because it means that whatever your budget is, Big White Ski Resort can offer you what you are looking for.

A shocking but welcoming decrease was the average days to sell. Falling down from 101 days in 2020 to just 55 days during 2021. Some homes also sold after 1 day on the market.

Another interesting statistic is the list to close price ratio. While in 2020 it sat at 96.8%, 2021 jumped to 99.1%.
