14 REO homes/condos are now listed/available for sale on Kauai. This is the most ever listed on Kauai. Some REOs are priced right and sell quickly. Others take a few price reductions until they hit the right price threshold. Savvy buyers know that banks will often keep reducing their price until that threshold is met. However there are a few lenders who are not reducing their prices as quickly as they should. Some are just misinformed, due to outdated appraisals and some are just unwilling to take such a large hit. However it is not a good strategy to keep on waiting to see how low the banks will go if you are truly interested in a property. There are buyers out there who are buying when the price is right. If you need help in determining if a Kauai property is priced well, feel free to call or email me. Aloha Julie Black
