Ownermatch Co-Ownership

The Whistler Real Estate Company Ltd. is the exclusive Ownermatch representative in Whistler and the Sea-to-Sky. Ownermatch International offers a unique proprietary system that expertly “matches” and brings together buyers and sellers for a mutually beneficial co-ownership relationship.

The formula is simple: one luxurious “second home” property is equally owned by two, well-matched co-owners. Each owner enjoys six months “exclusive” use of the property every year according to a pre-determined schedule. Properties are professionally managed and costs are shared.

This is the perfect vehicle for those who rent nightly or seasonally (Buyer or Seller), or for those who are not in Whistler every weekend. It’s also a great way for some sellers to stay connected to the resort they love without 100 per cent of the investment.

The Ownermatch programme is more than just a form of fractional ownership. It’s unique feature is that the Seller and Buyer can customise the proprietary usage agreement to suit their particular requirements, plus the terms and conditions of ownership are agreed to uniquely between the parties, and not enforced by a third party, which is the current fractional model.

Through the proprietary agreements, the parties to the match arrange the perfect working relationship and a real estate win-win in terms of investment and usage.

Rather then agreeing to an inflexible and restrictive fractional program, we match up like-minded people with similar values and objectives.

Ownermatch is targeted at affluent buyers who are looking for smart recreational real estate opportunities that will bring a strong, part-time lifestyle component into their lives. It is for people who appreciate the lifestyle benefits of a high-quality Whistler property, but whose usage will be limited. They have the financial ability to invest in a property on their own, but they know that it would be wise to consider a co-investor to make the investment more prudent.

This program is currently being used successfully in Vail, Lake Tahoe, Arizona and California.
