West Hawaii SFH sales show an increase of 41% over October 2018. Here is a surprise though, Condo sales are off by <11%> . WoW, that surprised me. Hold on, let me go look at 2017 numbers.......
Im back, when comparing to 2017 numbers, we are down 2% , the reason I go back to 2017 is that 2018 had an "event" that brought property sales to screeching standstill, so I typically go back to 2017 for the second half of 2019 . Note though, with our "2108 event" dropping the number of sales, it had little effect on prices, so let's look at median price
Homes: up almost 13% month over month, year to date (YTD) is up 1.29%, when it comes to median price I prefer to use YTD which is $649,000
Condos: Also up almost 13% for month over month, YTD is up just over 6%, so condo prices are holding strong, even with the number of sales being off some.

Some may ask, how much home do I get for that median price in Kona ($649k). Here is my featured property, a 3/2 just off of Alii Drive, within 2,000 feet from Magic Sands Beach for $25k less than the median price, and a short walk to the finest beach on Alii Drive
