princeville short sales: Princeville Kauai condo/house update for the week of Mar 16th to 22nd - 03/23/14 10:47 AM
Aloha,
We spent a few days over on Maui in Lahaina this past week. Each Island is so unique and different from the other. If you are thinking of moving to “Hawaii” make sure to visit all the Islands as I’m sure you’ll find an area just perfect for your lifestyle. Some areas are more laid back and remote, while others bustle with all the energy of a big city – whatever your way of being or your interest, you truly can find “your own piece of paradise” on one of the Islands.
We stayed right on the water within walking … (2 comments)

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…

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 short 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)

Aloha,
This was a very busy week for both condos and houses. As you know, condos have been fairly active but this week we saw two homes go quickly into escrow. One is a very nice short sale on Kaweonui while the other is a large home which still needs some work to bring it to completion. Ocean view and well priced condos continue to lead the way. For the second week in a row there were no price reductions in either category. With properties flying off the shelves as they are now, it appears there’s no need! Take a look:

Aloha,
It’s been a glorious weekend – the kind that makes you want to run out and buy a property even if that was not the original plan. Nice and sunny, beautiful blue skies, and a gentle breeze making for a perfect day at the beach – or hiking or anything else outdoors. Everyday in Kauai is a blessing but there are some days where mother nature presents such a perfect stage you simply cannot do anything but look out and admire all that surrounds you. We enjoyed sitting out on the bluff during sunset as the albatross skimmed along the … (0 comments)

Aloha,
And Hau’oli Makahiki Hou once again! 2012 went out with a bang with a total of 884 sales for the year which is a 16% increase over 2011 with 761 sales. The month of December really picked up steam posting an 81% increase over Dec 2011 – with 89 sales compared to 49 in 2011.
Judging from the number of condos that went into escrow as well as the number of showings this past week, I’m looking forward to a very active and successful real estate market this year. Here is what took place this past week – no new … (0 comments)

Aloha,
It’s been another beautiful week with tons of sunshine, minimal breezes and blue skies everywhere. If you were on Island and didn’t make time to go to the beach, you should have. I visited Anini the other day, and after a couple of hours, there was only myself and one other gentleman in the area. He was lounging chest deep in the water with his dog laying nearby. As I walked by on my way out, I commented that he now had the beach to himself. He looked up and down the beach, then remarked on what a beautiful paradise … (0 comments)

Aloha,
It’s been a rare week of blue skies without a trace of clouds – some days with minimal trades making time at the beach a must. We finally got a bit of rain last night. It was also an unusual week for Princeville condos as there were no new listings this week; something that seldom happens. Take a look for yourself:

Aloha,
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.
Roughly 40 personnel from multiple agencies, including: the Kauai Fire Department; the Department of Public Works; the state Department of Land and Natural Resources; the Pacific Missile Range Facility; and private contractors continue to work together in … (0 comments)

Aloha,
If you haven’t been to the Island lately, you may not know that there’s a miniature golf course in Kilauea. Even newer than the course is the skate park that was developed and built by Kauai Skate Ohana on land behind the golf course. We were there Saturday (no – not to use the skate park but to hike…) It was great to see all the “kids” – both big and small, out there enjoying themselves on the first North Shore Skate ramp ever.
There’s also a 5 mile hike (that’s where we were headed) that starts behind the golf … (0 comments)

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)

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,
This weekend we decided to hike the Hanalei Okolehau Trail once again. The pictures at the end are some of the amazing views from the trail. Not for the faint of heart however, as it’s pretty strenuous in parts. As for real estate, it’s seems to have slowed down a bit, with only 2 Princeville condo sales so far this month. Last July there were 7 sales for that month so we’ll see how we compare at month’s end. So far there have been 49 sales Islandwide compared to 59 for July 2011. Pricing is still good on many units … (0 comments)

Aloha,
Last week had minimal activity, as you’ll see from the update. Maybe it’s all the great weather we’ve been having that kept people at the beach and out enjoying the Island instead of real estate shopping. We went to Oahu for a day – drove up to Haleiwa on the North Shore and stayed at a condo right on the beach – something you can’t do in Princeville. Fun and relaxing. On to your update:

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)
