Princeville condo update for the week of Feb 24th to Mar 1st

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

 

Aloha,

It sure seems to me that real estate activity has suddenly picked up - at least for this past two weeks. I know I've been busy showing property as have several other agents in our office, plus I've had several showing requests which is a welcome change of pace. Perhaps the outstanding weather we've been having is making it hard for our visitors to go home without a piece of real estate to call their own. On to the news of the week- your condo update!

Villas on the Prince #20 is a new listing, and is being offered by the owner / agent who bought it for $495,172 in 3/02 from the developer. Puamana 22C was previously listed from 5/07 to 10/07, starting out at $510K and reducing to $410K after 145 DOM. It's always interesting to me how when it doesn't sell at a lower price, the remedy seems to be to relist at a new higher price. It is now listed for $419K and was purchased in 1/04 for $342,500. Nihilani 15A is another owner / agent listing which was purchased in 4/06 for $644,085. With a list price of $650K we've got another tax write off in the making.

The other Nihilani's are all developer units, still unsold! All were previously listed under another agent / office. Nihilani 9A, now listed for $659,200 was listed from 6 to 10 of 07 for $657,570. Unit 10B was previously listed during the same time frame for $730,800 and is now listed for $699,200. 15B is listed for $819,200 and was previously listed for $839,600. Unit 33C was listed for $879,400 and is now available for $849,200.

Hanalei Bay Resort J11 is no stranger to the MLS. It was purchased in 9/03 for $504,145, and was listed from 10/06 to 5/07, starting at $1.399M and dropping to $1.295M, then from 7/07 to 1/08 listed from $1.295M to $1.195M. Hanalei Bay Resort H26 was purchased in 11/03 for $507,290 (what is it with these odd numbers?) and has been on the market ever since. It was first listed from 1/04 to 9/04 for $750K. When it didn't sell after 265 DOM, it was listed again from 9/04 to 9/05 starting at $995K and moving up to $1.250M. After this listing expired, they tried again from 10/05 to 10/06. This time they just listed it for $1.4M. Unfortunately, no one caught on that the price increases were simply a reflection of the rapid appreciation of the unit, so it was again listed from 1/07 to 1/08 for the same price. Since no one has stepped up to the plate the last 4 years, they reduced it to $1,339,000 in the hopes that this is the magic number. It was even listed as a fractional from 2/07 to 2/08 listed at $250K.

Back on the market is Paniolo #107 which hasd expired. It started out at $525K and reduced down to $465K. This unit was purchased in 9/05 for $475K. More tax deductions.....

Hale Moi #208 was purchased in 11/01 for $215K and came back on the market after falling out of escrow. It went under contract on 2/15/08 so at least it didn't lose too much market time. Ali'i Kai 14E finally went into escrow after 335 DOM. This condo was purchased in 1/04 for $430K and was previously listed from 7/06 to 3/07, starting at $739K and dropping to $725K. It started out at $725K this time and reduced to $685K before going into escrow.

Villas on the Prince #28 finally closed at $799K, which was the last asking price. As discussed in my prior blog, this unit started out at $1.195M, moved up to $1.249M then worked it's way slowly down the food chain until it hit $799K, at which time it went into escrow and sold for "full price." Ka'iulani #9 is a developer's sale at $2,008,270.

Under the "expireds" you'll see the Hanalei Bay Resort H26 unit previously discussed under new listings. Kamahana #28 was purchased in 4/06 for $599K, starting out at $725K and moving down to $599K during the life of the listing.

Several sellers decided to hang it up for now and withdraw their units from the market. Sandpiper 132 went from $484 to $434 during the life of the listing, having been purchased in 8/04 for $330K. Paniolo #103 was purchased in 4/05 for $410K, leaving the seller with little margin for bargaining with a list price of $455K. Sealodge was purchased in 12/99 for $98K and went from $737K to $629,900 during the listing period.

Nihilani 16C was temporarily withdrawn when it was listed at $794,750. This unit was purchased in 6/06 for $769,570. Perhaps the seller saw the writing on the wall and realized there was no "gain" to be made in this market.

Finally, our favorites: the reductions. Villas on the Prince #30 went from $859K to $819K, and has a purchase price of $565K in 3/04. Nihilani 2A is a developer's unit and was reduced from $716K to $699,200. I wonder how the owners who paid the asking price for their developer's unit feel seeing these reductions?! Villas of Kamali'i, which is bank owned, went from $725K to $699,900. Sealodge B5 went from $730K to $719K. Nihilani 7C is another developer's unit which is being reduced from $829K to $812,200. And finally we have Villas of Kamali'i, down from $947,500 to $935K. This unit was purchased 3/05 for $743k and started this listing at $1.075M.

That wraps it up for this week. Please call or email with any questions.
