kona real estate: Don't Wait! Move Up To The House You Always Wanted - 03/12/15 09:28 AM
 
Aloha, Lance Owens (RS) here with LUVA Real Estate, sharing our latest data from KCM. I stay on top of our local market and we tend to follow these trends as well, in fact we exceed some of the trends, so feel free to read below and give us a call, we can go over specific numbers. 
Now that the housing market has stabilized, more and more homeowners are considering moving up to the home they have always dreamed of. In most areas, prices are still below those of a few years ago. Also, interest rates are still near 4%.

kona real estate: Dangers of being a REALTOR, even on the day after Christmas - 12/27/12 02:40 AM
I always considered being a REALTOR, especially in Hawaii, a pretty safe bet, and you would think, the day after Christmas, everybody is all fat and happy, in a good mood, and that your day would just roll off, not like any other day, but actually BETTER than most days. I know I was all Happy, the family and I, all had a wonderful Christmas, it was a warm, sunny,  81 degrees outside, I am standing a few inches taller with my new Christmas shirt I am wearing...... You know the feeling. 
Well, someone forgot to tell that mean old dog, … (8 comments)

kona real estate: Kona Fishing at its Finest - day 3 of the HIBT Tournament nets 16 Pacific Blue Marlins - 07/31/08 04:29 AM
Hard to believe 16 Blue Marlins caught in one day? and go figure the one that caught the 973lb one Tuesday, pulled even farther into the lead Wednesday with a 295 pound Blue Marlin - I think they probably have this one locked in!
So the total for the week so far is
THREE-DAY CUMULATIVE CATCH RECORD36 Pacific blue marlin tagged & released2 Pacific blue marlin boated4 Short nose spearfish tagged & released1 Ahi boated

kona real estate: KONA - Fishing at its finest - 973 lb Blue Marlin pulled in Tuesday - HIBT Tournament - 07/30/08 08:33 AM
973 pounds !!! This is the second largest fish caught in the 49 year old tournament, amazingly it was the same team, back in 1986 that reeled in the largest - 1,062.5 pounds - what are the odds?
Kona is world famous for its fishing - mostly because of its Deep Blue waters, Aloha Spirit, Warm tropical weather, and the ability to pull in a fish of this size - 5 minutes out of the harbor. The waters drop off so fast here in Kona, you can be a few hundred yards off shore and be thousands of feet deep - … (2 comments)

kona real estate: June 2008 MLS market reports are in - Median Sales Price - Kona Real Estate - 07/15/08 05:23 AM
Island wide - Median Sales Price  slowed 15% from June last year, with Kona showing a little more than 9% drop in Median Sales Price. Very Interesting if you looked at my last 2 reports - 38% drop in the number of sales, and 54% drop in the $ amount exchanging hands? But only a 9% drop in median price? Does that mean we are near the bottom ? Not sure, and I just called the wizardry repair shop - sat on hold for an hour - and then was told that my crystal ball is still not ready - parts are … (4 comments)

kona real estate: June 2008 MLS market reports are in - Sales Volume ($ amount) - Kona Real Estate - 07/15/08 04:54 AM
 Island wide sales Volume slowed 67% from June last year, with Kona showing a little more than 54% drop in sales volume (dollar amount exchanging hands) .
(copy of statement on sales numbers) Sitting down and talking with other agents, and gathering my information - I think a big part of this drop, is the closing of 2 major airlines serving the Big Island - Aloha & ATA. That made a huge impact that I think we are really just now feeling - why just now, when the airlines closed months ago. I believe that the people that were only a month or … (0 comments)

kona real estate: Is Hawaii affordable Yet ? - 05/09/08 08:15 AM
What do you consider affordable should be the question.
I am constantly seeing the shock on my mainland clients faces as I show them real estate for sale - they have seen the housing market drop like crazy over there - therefore - Hawaii must be the same. The answer is yes - it has dropped, but nothing like the mainland. What does $200,000 get you - a 1 bedroom condo without a view?
I have just run an MLS search for any homes under $400,000 - there are only 13 homes in Kona for under $400,000. You just have to … (1 comments)

kona real estate: Good Morning America - Surfs Up - Prices are down - Kailua Kona, HI. Buyers Agent Lance Owens - 02/16/08 04:06 AM
I woke up last night to the sound of the pounding surf, now I live about 4 blocks away, so when it wakes me up - you know its good.
I grabbed my camera, coffee, laptop, and headed off to work this morning, my office is about 2 miles from home, down Alii Drive, and I had to pass 3 different surf breaks, so I pulled over and snapped these photos (if I would have had my camera yesterday - there was a pod of humpback whales just about another 50 feet out past the surfers - spectacular view)
I actually … (2 comments)

kona real estate: $42,900 - Truly a great DEAL - 1 Acre FS, Hawaii, on power/phone/cable - 12/05/07 05:37 AM
This truly is a great deal, I have a developer that came in and paid as much as $70,000 a lot, for some of these lots, and with the slow down he wants me to sell off a few. This lot is one that was a side by side lot, narrow and long, but he went in and had them re subdivided, so now it is a nice rectangular lot.  Its low in the subdivision, surrounded by newer homes, and at a great price!
Its located in a subdivision that is - i am told - the largest subdivision in the United … (3 comments)

kona real estate: Hawaii, Winter is here - Looks like a cold one - SNOW already on the ground - 11/06/07 03:52 AM
Even in Hawaii it snows, its funny how many people don't realize that we have snow her on the Big Island, every year. Some years are better than others, but it always happens. I have even seen it snow low enough to cover 3 mountain tops here - what a beautiful scene that is, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, that happened my first year here - didn't realize how special that was, and didn't take the time to photograph it.
But this is why I love the Big island so much, we have rain forest, deserts, Lava fields, and of course the … (4 comments)

kona real estate: 2007 Ford Ironman World Championship - Time to get out of Town !!! - 10/05/07 09:17 AM
Its that time of year again, people from all over the world, Swimming, Biking, Running around Kona ! Its been a great boost for the economy every year - especially after 9-11, there was just a handful of people that didn't make it that year, mostly because they were called to duty. So THANK YOU Ironman. Enough said about that, the reality of living here, and having to deal with - basically shutting down Kona on race day - Well its just easier to get out of town - EARLY that day!

You know, if I were a tourist here on vacation - I would think it is a lot worse than it really is. I mean - SLOWING - what exactly does that mean? Does it mean we are only flying in 200 people a day instead of 300  from Oahu to help fill positions. Does it mean … (1 comments)
