kauai foreclosures: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Dec 8th to Dec 14th - 12/15/13 06:37 AM
Aloha,
This Sunday started with a bang, literally, as the Kauai Civil Defense agency issued early morning warnings of severe thunderstorms followed shortly thereafter by a flash flood warning. It’s now afternoon and the early morning lightening show is but a thing of the past as I look out onto the water, blue sky and thick white clouds. Will we have more rain later in the day as a new system comes in? Maybe. The weather is always so much fun here. Just blink if you don’t like it and wait a few minutes…

kauai foreclosures: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Sep 30th to Oct 6th - 10/08/12 12:51 PM
Aloha,
This week has been one of the hotter ones – making for perfect beach days. We even had a swell come in over the weekend which made for great surfing. Mind you, I’m not a surfer so my comments are based on the number of surfers we saw in the water while out walking. There was )unfortunately for us) very little breeze which made for nice, clean waves – at least it looked that way from our vantage point overlooking the ocean between Pu’u Po’a and Pali Ke Kua.
I checked back on the September market statistics and they remained … (0 comments)

kauai foreclosures: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Jul 22nd to Jul 28th - 07/29/12 09:49 AM
Aloha,
 
There’s plenty of activity this past week as you’ll see below. Of particular interest is the fact that two of the properties came on the market and went into escrow in the same week. One other unit that had been on the market for slightly more than 2 months also went into escrow. We even had a cash sale of a leasehold Pali Ke Kua unit which are often a “hard sell” compared to a fee simple property. Three Sandpiper units suddently appeared on the market along with two Villas on the Prince. You’ll also find one of the … (0 comments)

Aloha,
Happy Fourth of July! If you’re on Island you may want to take the opportunity to come down to the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) on July 3rd for music, fun, food, crafts and fireworks. This annual event is open to the public, with gates opening at 4 and ending at 11.
As for real estate, June 2012 Stats easily surpassed June 2011 with 80 total sales compared to 66 in 2011. As far as condos go, there were 28 sales in June 2011 compared to 35 this past month. All indicators are that the market is in recovery – … (0 comments)

kauai foreclosures: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Mar 4th to Mar 10th - 03/11/12 04:36 AM
Aloha,
If you;ve been watching the news this week, you know that Kauai was under flash flood warnings for a good part of the week. Princeville, on a couple of occasions, was “an island within an island” – cut off to the North by closure of the Hanalei Bridge (which also isolated Hanalei) and to the south by a mudslide on the Kalihiwai Bridge. When it rains as much as it did last week, I stay very close to home for fear of ending up on the wrong side of one of the “great divides.”
It’s pretty unusual for the Hanalei … (2 comments)

kauai foreclosures: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Feb 26th to Mar 3rd. - 03/04/12 11:40 AM
Aloha,
Here we are in March already – we had an extra day in February but weren’t able to top the numnber of sales in Feb 2011 which was 64. This Feb we came close with 60 – 20 of which were condos compared to 24 last Feb. With interest rates holding steady, and banks seemingly getting more proficient at short sales, buyers are starting to step up to the many great opportunities. This week we saw one condo and three homes go into escrow. Take a look:

Aloha,
It was a rather slow week for real estate, as you’ll see from the brief updates in both condos and homes. The biggest factor in that slowdown may have been the one and off rain which culminated in a flash flood warning most all of Sunday. The Hanalei bridge was closed for a period of time and the rains were heavy, especially in the Lihue area. Here is your update:

Aloha,
This week’s update is extremely short and boasts the distinction of no price changes in condos – which is extremely rare. The news is all good – two new listings with three great sales and one expiration – that’s it. Little more happened in houses – there were a few price changes there but no sales. Take a look for yourself:

Princeville condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Feb 5th to Feb 11th Aloha,
We had 64 sales in Feb 2011 and are at 20 as of today’s date. You’ll see three of those sales in this week’s update along with one new listing. Right now we have 82 active listings and 30 that are currently in escrow or under contract. With numbers like that, there’s hope we’ll start to see this market stabilize.

Aloha,
It’s been a great week with lots of breeching whales and sunny skies. I always consider myself lucky to actually see a whale breech when I have the binoculars up to my eyes pointed in the right direction which is what happenned this past week. I excitedly told my hubby that I saw “two breeching whales with binoculars” to which he responded, “Whales with binoculars? What were they looking at?”……

Aloha,
We’re starting the year out right – with a total of 63 sales for Jan 12 which is a 9% increase over the 58 sales of Jan 11. Any increase is good news! Of those 63 sales, 30 were residential, 8 land, 4 commercial and 21 condos. The Waimea zone accounted for 4 of the sales, Koloa zone saw 11, in the Lihue zone there were 12 sales, 19 in Kawaihau and Hanalei zone had 17 transactions. This month’s number is an increase compared to past Januarys – in Jan 10 there were 54 sales, Jan 09 saw 20 sales, … (0 comments)

This is one of the shorter updates I’ves done lately, but it’s headed in the right direction – that is – only one new listing (we have plenty of those right now) with three going into escrow and two selling. Here is your update:

Aloha,
It was a pretty quiet week overall, with no new listings in condos or homes and a total of two new escrows. Maybe all the discussion in Congress about the National deficit put buyers back on the fence for a bit. Here is your update for this past week:

This is an unusual week in that there we no new listings. I guess with the 4th being in there, people were busy celebrating instead of looking at property and / or putting new property on the market. Here is your update for the week just past:

Aloha,
We've had more rain than we know what to do with this week, with one flash flood watch/warning after another. I think we're all ready for some good old sunny days. It doesn't seem all the rain slowed down the condos buyers, judging from the activity this week. Here is your update:

Aloha,
This was a great week as far as winter weather goes. We had a cold snap for a few days which caused everyone here to dig out their long pants and jackets. It must have been down into the low 60′s and high 50′s which is downright chilly by Kauai standards.
At the same time, we had some of the most spectacular high surf which I enjoyed as I worked in my home office. I particularly love this time of year as it brings the albatross around, who make soaring over the bluffs and ocean look so very effortless. The … (1 comments)

Aloha,
It seems everyone was busy this week with showings, but it hasn't yet translated into properties going into escrow- yet. Island wide, only 4 condos went into escrow: one Wailua Bay View short sale priced at $270K, a Plantation Hale at $139K, an Islander for $165K and Kauai Kalani condo complex for $7.5M which is probably the best buy of all. As for sales, there were two - a Lai Nani short sale which was listed for $299K and sold for $300K after having been purchased in 6/05 for $618,750 and an ocean view Waipouli Beach Resort which was listed … (2 comments)

Sales continued on the upswing this past month, with 49 sales for Sep 10 compared to 40 in Sep 09.

This pales in comparision to prior years, with 745 sales for year to date Sep 07, 1257 year to date Sep 06 and 1381 year to date for Sep 05. For this past month, there were 16 … (0 comments)
