kauai condos: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) update for the week of March 15th to 21st - 03/22/09 05:59 AM
Every now and again I enjoy leaving the Island to spend a few days on Oahu. My style is to stay at a hotel midway between shopping/movies - and Waikiki. I don't rent a car but instead find it relaxing to take my time and walk to Ala Moana Shopping Center for some "recreational shopping" or stroll down to the Ward Center Cinemas for a choice of movies. Walk a little bit further to the Restaurant Row Theatres where you'll find "slightly old" movies at only $1 anytime! Choices this week included "Doubt, " "Revolutionary Road" and "Last Chance Harvey." … (0 comments)

kauai condos: Understanding MLS info in my Princeville Kauai blog..... - 03/18/09 05:53 PM

MLS information is taken directly from the Hawaii Information System which is the entity that bring us our MLS. (Multiple Listing Service) Here is the Island update for Tuesday, March 17th:

kauai condos: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) update for the week of March 8th to 14th - 03/16/09 11:34 AM
It's been a relatively quiet week, except for a few closings, one of which was mine. The weather remained on the cool side, with intermittent rain along with very high surf on the North Shore. I took pictures of the waves both on Friday and Saturday but it's very hard to capture their beauty and power (at least for me) through the camera lens. Friday we had a misty rain that turned everything grey (including the cruise ship) while Saturday showed a marked improvement with periods of blue skies! Unfortunately, a local surfer apparently drowned in the water off Anahola … (0 comments)

Here we are in March already and my taxes still aren't done! I'm usually well on my way to a refund by now but have not been able to find the time to sit down and crunch all the numbers. Last week continued with cold and rainy weather so much so that when I went out to brunch this morning I all but gave up and put on my black knit sweater (which is generally reserved for mainland cold weather) along with jeans. Usually, you'll see me in a sleeveless top with a light sweater, always ready for the sun … (0 comments)

kauai condos: Princeville condo (and house) update for the week of February 15th to 21st - 02/23/09 08:05 AM
It's been a pretty slow week with little activity as you'll see from the update. Maybe it's due to the less than desirable weather - this has been one of the coldest winters I've experienced in a long while. Mind you, I don't expect much in the way of empathy or sympathy since few people consider lows in the high 50's or low 60's as something to cry about. But come live here for a few years and you'll find yourself singing the same song. Here's your update for this week:

It's been a pretty quiet week with little activity which is reflected in this week's update. There are hardly even any price reductions! Maybe everyone is settling down to work on their taxes now that Superbowl is over or maybe everyone is waiting to hear what, if anything, the new stimilus package will bring besides more parties for the beleagured banks.

January Statistics are out showing a total of 20 sales this month compared to 50 in 08, 69 in 07, 121 for 06, 105 in 05 and 122 for 04. I guess that just about says it all. The majority of the sales were residential with 10 transactions, 3 for vacant land, and 7 condos. Most of the sales were in the Kawaihau district where 5 houses, 3 land parcels and 1 condo sold. There were 2 houses and 2 condos sold in the Hanalei district, 3 Lihue district condos, 2 houses and 1 condo in Koloa area and 1 … (0 comments)

Where did January go? Just flew by from what I can tell. Seems to be a bit more activity this last couple of weeks and it's showing by way of a sale here and there along with units occasionally going into escrow. We certainly do have more buyers out looking so that's a good start. Heres what we have for this past week:

It's been an interesting week what with all the controversy around the possiblity of more timeshares in Princeville. (See my last two blogs for details.) I am seeing more and more short sales and Bank REO's coming onto the MLS which only makes me say all the more, now is a good time to buy. Take a look at the update for this past week:

kauai condos: Princeville Kauai Rezoning Application for Timeshare withdrawn. - 01/25/09 11:32 AM
I'm always happy to report on the unexpected, especially when the news is good. Last blog I reported on a meeting held in Princeville where developer Jeff Stone said he was requesting a zoning change from R-4 to R-10 to put timeshare in on the Meadows and Greens area of Princeville. The meeting had the appearances of being held "under the radar" as there was very little notice. Fortunately, a few concerned citizens found out about the meeting and got the word out so that approximately 250 people showed up to voice their concerns.
In today's Garden Island (1-25-09) it … (0 comments)

kauai condos: Princeville Kauai to have more Timeshares? - 01/22/09 11:52 AM
There always seems to be one controversy or another going on regarding development on Kauai and the latest involves Princeville. Last night there was a "not well publicized" neighborhood meeting in Princeville with Jeff Stone as the speaker. You may know Stone as the individual who heads up a joint venture company called Princeville Associates LLC that paid around $220M back in 05 for the purchase of the 9,000-acre Princeville resort, including the 252-room Princeville Hotel, two Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf courses, a tennis club, health spa, shopping center (now on the market) airport and other land holdings on … (0 comments)

kauai condos: Princeville condo (and house) update for the week of January 11th to 17th - 01/18/09 03:43 PM
It's been interesting week weather wise and a productive one in terms of real estate. Starting with the weather: it's been pretty much a mixed bag this week, with some rain, some sun and cooler temperatures (or at least what we call "cooler temperatures!") Friday the State closed schools everywhere but on the Big Island in anticipation of a huge winter storm that was supposed to hit accompanied by wind gusts of up to 60 mph. We did have several brief periods of heavy rain and some gusty winds, but the storm that was anticipated never really occurred. What did … (0 comments)

kauai condos: Kauai Year End 2008 Market Statistics - 01/12/09 10:41 AM

All year long people have been talking about just how bad the real estate market has been. Now that the year is over, let's take a look at the end of year statistics and see how they compare to the years past. For the month of December, there were 39 sales, down from 56 last year December. For 2008 there were 587 sales well off of the 909 properties that sold in 2007 and much less than the 1554 sold in 06 or the 1796 sold in 05.
For 2008 there were a total of 283 residential sales, compared to … (1 comments)

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou! In other words, Happy New Year. We've been having a pretty wet winter so far, at least up here on the North Shore. It's fun to watch wave after wave of rain come in off the ocean. It's almost like it's prepackaged. You see it coming, then you hear it travel over the condo roof, and finally you can watch it move across the parking lot from the back lanai. Or, it may come the opposite direction from the mountains out to the sea. Either way, we're getting more than our share of wet weather.
