PROPERTY TYPES TO CONSIDER
There are two different property types that first-time buyers should understand and consider. There are houses, townhouses or condos available in each property type.
Residential properties can be lived in full-time or rented out on a long-term basis (monthly, or a 1-year lease for example). There are no restrictions on ownership or value.
Resident restricted properties have a covenant registered on title stating that they must be occupied by an employee or retiree of Whistler. They are designed to create affordable housing in Whistler, in that you get ‘more for your money’ than an open-market comparable.
