kauai real estate: Kauai Housing Market Tight at Mid-Year - 07/31/17 07:30 PM
The Kauai housing market continues to be tight in the residential areas while ample home (not condo) inventory remains in the resort areas of the North Shore (Princeville et al) with ample home & condo inventory on the South Shore (Poipu et al).  Six Months is considered the break point between a buyer's market and a seller's market.  
The Central area of Lihue is extremely tight with less than 3 months inventory for homes and less than 4 months for condos.  This is similar to previous snapshots of the Lihue market.

kauai real estate: Kauai Absorption Rate at Mid-Year 2016 - 07/31/16 05:23 AM
Absorption rate (how many months of active inventory) is a market health indicator where 6 months is typically viewed as a balanced market.  Current Kauai data shows a sluggish market in the South Shore and North Side areas while the Central area (Lihue) is quite a hot market.  The residential (and remote) West Side is also sluggish while the East Side is OK for homes while somewhat problematic for condos.  
 
My interpretation of this data is that the resort areas are troublesome while the residential areas are hot.  That's because the North and South areas are big resort areas on Kauai while … (1 comments)

kauai real estate: Kauai real estate sales history - 11/04/15 03:24 AM
Third quarter statistics are in for 2015 Kauai real estate sales.  The charts below show our real estate cycles beginning in 2005, the buildup to what turned out to be a peak in 2006, the 2011 market bottom, and on to the present.  All three categories, homes, condos, and land, showed a dip for the 3rd quarter 2014, something I described at the time of posting as "interesting" but probably not the start of a new trend.  Time has affirmed that assessment with prices for homes & condos trending up and vacant land relatively flat.

Banyan Harbor condominiums overlook Lihue's harbor, just off Nawiliwili Road. Located on a steep hillside, some units feature parking & storage in deeded stalls beneath the structure.
