Princeville Kauai condo (and house) + short sale update for the week of Jun 26th to Jul 2nd

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sold on Kauai Realty RB-18142

Aloha,

And happy Fourth of July to everyone. It's a magnificent day here with lots of blue sky and a healthy dose of tradewinds. Our parking lot here at the Cliffs is jammed full of cars, indicative of summer travel. The hard thing to believe is that we're already in July. Are they shortening the months or what?

We didn't quite meet the sales stats from Jun 2010 which had 73 sales whereas June 2011 only had 65. We did however, have more condo sales - 28 compared to 25 last year with the majority occurring in the Kawaihau zone. Here's your update for this week:

New Listings:
There appears to be quite a few new listings this week but that's not actually the case. Two brokerages merged resulting in having to relist the properties all under one name. Because these condos are not new listings, and were discussed at that time they came on the market, they will not be addressed in this update. That will include Cliffs 3204, Plantation 1611, Kamahana 11, Villas of Kamali'i 54, Hanalei Bay Villas 29, Nihilani 7B and Nihilani 19A.

Now that we have that squared away: We have two new Ka'iulani townhomes on the market; unit 77 which sold for $826,530 in 4/07 and is priced as a potential short sale for $749K and unit 63 which sold for $810K in 9/09 and is listed for $839K. There are also two new Ali'i Kai units; number 13 sold for $150K back in 7/92 and comes on the market this week at $289,900 while Ali'i Kai 4104 comes on as a short sale priced at $475K after selling for $950K in 8/05. This unit was previously listed from 7/08 to 1/11 starting at $925K and reducing to $799K. Cliffs 9201, which sold as a leasehold for $135K in 12/86 and converted to fee simple in 11/91 for $22,500, shows up as a new listing with 311 days. You'll also see this condo under the expired section of this report -they changed agents when the listing was reactivated which caused it to show up as "new."

Short sale Villas of Kamali'i 4, which fronts the golf course, is priced at $595K after selling for $900K in 3/07. It was also listed from 3/09 to 12/09 starting at $945K and reducing to $925K when it expired. It came back on the market in 1/10 to 6/10 priced at $895K but expired before finding a buyer. We have Pu'u Po'a 110 re-entering the market, priced at $1.295M with a former sale price of $1,637,500 in 7/05. It was previously listed from 6/10 to 3/11 at $1.4M when it was withdrawn.

Back on the Market:
Moana floorplan Nihilani 1A is back on the market after being temporarily withdrawn, still priced at $575K. This unit sold from the developer on 5/08 for $695K.

Contingent:
Bank REO Sandpiper 210 priced at $237K wasted no time going into escrow after only 17 market days. This upstairs condo sold for $535K in 6/05. FNMA REO Nihilani 21B went into escrow while priced at $299,900. This unit sold from the developer in 10/06 for $656,650 and was foreclosed on in 9/10. Sealodge C3 priced at $399K went into escrow. This unit last sold for $365K in 5/03. Ali'i Kai 3202, which is a short sale priced at $595K after selling for $770K in 3/05, also quickly went into escrow with only 10 market days.

Everyone keeps asking me if I think we're at the bottom of the market - wondering how they can tell if this is it. In my opinion, the best indicator of the market is buyer response. When buyers feel there is value for their dollar they will buy. Considering how quickly some of these units are being snapped up, I would say we're there. I would also advise buyers not to miss out on this great opportunity. You may have missed the boat with the big appreciation wave throughout 04-06 - don't miss out again.

Expired:
Sealodge E9, which was purchased for $285K in 12/00 expired while listed for $459K. As noted under new listings, Cliffs 9201 expired and was then reactivated under a different agent in the same brokerage.

Price Changes:
Short sale Sandpiper 222, an upstairs unit purchased for $474,230 in 9/05 went from $245K to $239K. Villas of Kamali'i 27 reduced from $845K to $795, having last sold for $465K from the developer in 11/03.

As was the case with the condos, you'll see several "new" listings which are actually existing listings that were relisted when the two brokerages merged. There are no new residential listings this week. Here is the rest of your update:

I hope your weather is just as beautiful as it is here - or that you're actually here to enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer. Have a great Fourth no matter you are - and remember to email for the facts before buying or selling.
