princeville condo sales: Princeville Kauai condo/house update for the week of Jun 22nd to 28th - 06/29/14 01:05 PM
Aloha,
June 2014 made a valiant effort to meet or exceed June 2013 sales stats but so far, is falling short with 92 sales as of today, Sunday. The record from last June is 98. All we need is 6 closings on Monday!!! I had one scheduled for that day but it unfortunately got set over to July 1! Think we’ll see 6 closings on Monday? I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m quite impressed with how June rallied. Hopefully the rally will continue into July. Here is what happened this past week:

princeville condo sales: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) update for the week of Jan 19th to Jan 25th - 01/26/14 04:17 AM
loha,
What a difference a day makes. This morning we cannot see the ocean as everything is pretty much grey outside. If I told you there were mountain views off the back lanai, you’d simply have to take me at my word as they’re not visible either. Fortunately, we participated in the first of three seasonal whale counts yesterday when it was beautiful and sunny with a cooling breeze. We saw four breeches, numerous slaps and too many “blow” to mention. Had a great time. Whale counting is open to volunteers. If you’re interested click here to go to the Sanctuary … (0 comments)

Aloha,
 
This week the hot commodity was a two bedroom Hale Honu, unit 5A; a foreclosure priced at $201,500. It caused quite a stir the first time it hit the market last September but was withdrawn from the market before going into escrow. It came back on this past week and went quickly into escrow along with a Hanalei Bay Resort unit. Take a look for yourself:

princeville condo sales: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) update for the week of Jan 5th to Jan 11th - 01/12/14 03:55 AM
Aloha,
It’s been a beautiful week in Kauai after some cold days which got into the 60′s. This is the one time of the year where it’s very easy to distinguish locals from visitors, who are all parading around in shorts and tank tops while locals dig out their jeans and sweat shirts.
Nihilani is finally building the last building in the complex. The lot for building 12, which up to this point has handled overflow parking, is now under construction with a tentative completion date in Apr 14. Due to the economy, the builder never completed this last building as … (0 comments)

princeville condo sales: Kauai 2013 November Market Statistics - 12/15/13 09:46 AM
Aloha,
The number of sales for Nov 13 ended up the same as Nov 12, posting 78 sales for the month. Although sales didn’t surpass last Nov, year to date statistically we are 15% ahead of Nov 12 with 913 total this Nov vrs 797 from this time last Nov. This is the first time in the last six years that the numbers have been in the “9’s.” The low year to date was Nov 09 with 441 sales.
Even though there were only 78 sales this Nov, it is much better than the 29 sales (can you believe that number?) … (2 comments)

princeville condo sales: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Nov 10th to Nov 16th - 11/17/13 12:56 PM
Aloha,
 
Condo activity remained strong this week in the low to mid range with three new listings, one of which went into escrow within three days of coming on the market. Housing activity was a bit weaker with only one new listing and one new escrow. Its interesting to note that there are no price changes this week, and there were only two changes last week – one house and one condo – which was a price increase. Does that mean sellers are feeling their properties are well priced? Take a look at the activity from this past week:

princeville condo sales: Kauai 2013 October Market Statistics - 11/13/13 08:40 AM
Aloha,
This past month just slightly outperformed Oct 12 with a 5.48% increase in sales, going from 73 last year to 77 this Oct. The changes in the properties sold is interesting: last Oct there were 39 residential sales Island wide compared to 29 this Oct; only 5 land sales last Oct with a huge 200% increase to 15 sales this Oct. Condos stayed fairly steady with 29 sales last Oct compared to 33 this past month. Even though sales were only slightly higher than last Oct, it is still the highest Oct in the last 6 years – going back … (0 comments)

Aloha,
This week has been nothing short of spectacular – almost every day has been a full on beach day; lots of sun, some high fluffy clouds, all ending with beautiful sunsets. It’s apparently convinced at least 5 condo buyers to take the plunge as noted below. As of today, there are only 57 condo listings, ranging from a low of $201,500 (which actually already has several offers on it and is just awaiting review and acceptance) up to a high of $1.8M. In other words, something for everyone! Here is last week’s activity:

princeville condo sales: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Sep 15th to Sep 21st - 09/22/13 09:39 AM
Aloha,
The slowdown continues, with just one new condo listing and one unit going into escrow. As for houses two are back on the market and one went into escrow. As I said last week, its common to have a slowdown at the end of summer and although it may be the natural rhythm of the market, it’s never welcome. After all, what real estate agent and seller doesn’t love a hot market? Buyer, maybe not so much as they like to have time to pick and choose. The flaw in that style is some buyers forget to ever buy until … (0 comments)

It was another warm and muggy week perfect for beach time. From the looks of things, the condo buyers still managed to check things out while home buyers apparently stayed to enjoy the sun, sand and sea. Take a look below and you’ll see what I mean:

Aloha,
The market continues to show strength, with several new listings as well as three condos and one home closing escrow. Will we surpass last May’s performance which had 88 sales?– That remains to be seen as we are now at 65 closed transactions. There are currently 39 properties under contract – and 240 more that are in escrow. Here is your activity for the week just past:

It was another beautiful week, a little muggy with the trades diminishing a bit here and there, but overall, it’s still paradise and I love it. Apparently others do too as 2 condos and 1 house went into escrow while 5 condos closed escrow to the delight of their new owners – plus there are 4 new condo listings for your consideration.

princeville condo sales: Kauai 2013 April Market Statistics - 05/02/13 05:55 PM
Aloha,
Apr 13 turned out to be very hot, ending up with 124 sales, which is an increase of 72% over the 72 sales of Apr 12. The increase was spread among residential – which went from 29 to 54 sales, land which had a 160% increase with 10 sales in Apr 12 to 26 in Apr 13 and condo with 44 sales this Apr compared to 33 Apr 12. The “low” in sales was in Apr 08 with 48 sales and Apr 09 with only 45. Apr 13 is far and away the best performing month since 2008.

Aloha,
It was another beautiful week with a brief period of showers this weekend. We were under a flash flood watch Saturday and told to expect heavy thunderstorms but escaped with minimal rain instead. Real estate has been keeping a steady pace, with houses even starting to move. A total of 21 properties Islandwide went into escrow while 37 closed escrow. Is the market moving? Yes, I think so.

princeville condo sales: Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update -plus a little more - for the week of Feb 3rd to Feb 9th - 02/10/13 05:07 AM
Aloha,
Valentines day is near and if you’re lucky enough to be on Kauai, there are many, many romantic/exciting things to do. First choice is often a nice restaurant. You have quite an assortment from the Dolphin Restaurant or Postcards in Hanalei, to Duke’s at Kalapaki Bay or Roy’s or the Beach House in the Poipu area. There are many great restaurants here but they book up quickly so don’t wait too long. If you like something more active, contact one of the activity desks and schedule a paddle/hike up the Wailua River which includes lunch at a beautiful waterfall, or … (0 comments)

Aloha,
Although activity has really picked up in recent weeks, the month of Jan 2013 underperformed compared to Jan 2012 by 23% with only 48 sales compared to 63. Based on the number of showings and the buyers that seem to be on the hunt, I’m expecting a good Feb and Mar. Right now there are 68 condos and 128 homes in escrow Islandwide, 21 of which are Princeville condos and 7 are Princeville homes. Take a look at the Princeville condo activity this past week:

It’s a beautiful weekend here on the North Shore and most other parts of the Island, but the big news is a wildfire below Kokee. This is the update provided by Channel 2 news: “Wildfire burns over 1,000 acres on Kauai.” UPDATE:Crews continue to make steady progress in fighting the wildfire on Kauai that has burned over 1,000 acres in the Kokee area.

Aloha,
I had a nice couple of days in Oahu, at the Ala Moana shopping center and Hotel. Clients often ask about Island fever or what I do for a few days of fun off Island. I occasionally like to fly over to Oahu, and take the City Bus to Ala Moana. Since I don’t get a car, it’s very relaxing. I can walk into Waikiki if I want more of a tourist feel, or head the opposite direction to the Ward Theatres where I can choose among 16 movies.
This may seem like a routine outing for those of you … (0 comments)
