We are over one month into 2022 already and Big White Ski Resort continues to break the mould in many ways. Rising above the challenges and restrictions, the mountain has maintained and elevated real estate growth and development. With the Coquihalla Highway reopened to regular traffic and exciting events scheduled, the resort is becoming a more sought after place than it already was. Travelers from afar, and locals are both vying for the opportunity to own property at Big White Ski Resort.
Big White Ski Resort so far in 2022
This January we saw 24 sales at the resort, which is fairly on par as last year saw 23 sales. Again, fairly on par was the total volume of sales reaching 14 million this year, up 2 million from last years number. A number that was saw a big difference in was inventory. Not news for anyone that has been keeping tabs on the Kelowna market, but for Big White, this is a large difference that has just been affecting the market. January 2021 had 73 active listings including condos, lots, etc.. This past January only 34 active listings were available on the market. More than a 50% decrease in inventory. Which, leads us into the current happenings as we continue through February.
Currently there are 36 active listings. From the most affordable studio unit at $165,000 to an under construction luxury chalet at $1,599,900. There still is a price point for everyone and the potential investment opportunity is, for some, just too good to pass up. Some listings are being quickly snapped off the market at full or higher than list price and sometimes subject-free. That is not the case for every property however so there are still many good chances to find your perfect Big White Ski Resort property.
