Whistler real estate guide & listings for sale
Whistler is very quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Cars are a great means of transportation in this municipality. Many homes for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, and it is especially convenient to come across a parking spot. It is very inconvenient for pedestrians to move around in this municipality since almost no daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
Townhouses are the most common housing type, representing around one third of dwellings in Whistler, but small apartment buildings, duplexes, and single detached homes are also present in the housing stock. This municipality offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly 60% of the properties in Whistler and 40% are rented. About 30% of properties in this municipality were constructed following the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s.
A fraction of home buyers in this municipality may be able to shop for groceries by walking in one of around 10 stores, while others will need another means of transportation. Residents are served by over 100 restaurants and cafes as well. With respect to education, parents and their children may find it very hard to access high schools and primary schools as pedestrians. Likewise, daycares are not numerous and consequently not always within walking distance. Families have the option of public and private schools at both the elementary and secondary school level.
