Kauai Foreclosures

Aloha

Well its another beautiful day here in paradise.    The real estate market continues to remain active here on the islands.  As in most places here and on the mainland the majority of the sales activity is in the “distressed market” ie; forclosures and short sales.   One of the unique things about the Kauai market vs other areas in the country is that forclosures  and short sales probably only make up 20-30% of the listings for sale here vs 50-70% as in some areas of the mainland.  They are however  responsible for the vast majority of current pending contracts and sales.   The flip side to this is that we are seeing the inventory for foreclosures and short sales that are active on the market beginning to dry up.  The really really really god deals, no brainers, deal of a lifetime, are getting harder and harder to find.  What does all this mean?  I have quit trying to predict but my gut tells me,  that it is pointing to the bottom or close to it for the real estate market.  As we move the distressed inventory out we are starting to see more non distressed sales occurring  with the motivated seller who is willing to sell at a discount but not at a price that would make him have to sell “short”.   

Do not fear my friends I am not saying that there are not or will not be good deals coming.  We still have a long way to go tho get this crazy real estate market back on track, but I think we are headed in the right direction.  Below are a few of  the REOs that I think represent a good value here on Kauai.
