Every year many people choose to lay their roots in Whistler, whether moving permanently or purchasing a second home.

There is something particularly special about building your own home, from choosing the location to designing every detail of the interior. Here are some things to consider when looking to build in Whistler:

Choosing the location

The location of your new property is one of the most important aspects. Luckily in Whistler it is hard to go wrong – wherever you choose to build it is already blessed with a fantastic location.

There are a number of current locations within the local area where you can purchase lots, along with the development area of Stonebridge.

Whether you want to be at one with nature in a quiet acreage outside of Pemberton, or you want incredible mountain views all to yourself, there is a lot for everyone. And from there you can start building your dream.

Whether you come with a list of questions, several sketches or an entire team of experts, when it comes to planning it’s about what makes sense for you.

Planning is the most important stage of building a home and should be taken very seriously. It is both exciting and intimidating when faced with a completely blank slate, but we have the experience and the resources to assist you in whatever you need.

The first stage is meeting with a design/drafting company in order to get your ideas on paper, and you should work closely with the team to ensure your end goal remains the same. From lighting to room design and layout, the planning stage is crucial to developing the best possible property.

Think about what exactly you’re looking for and don’t be afraid to ask for assistance from our expert Realtors.
