At least weekly I am contacted by buyers looking to "get a deal" on foreclosed properties.  For the most part the bulk of Kauai HI bank owned properties are done.  The ship has sailed! Here's a look at the REO sales over the last 5 years in Kauai HI.   Note that prior to 2009 our MLS did not have...

Can you believe it, it's June already.  So many things happen in June, school kids rejoice as summer vacation starts, graduation ceremonies, weddings, lazy beach days, AND Hurricane Season begins!

Wow!  Can you believe 2010 is half over?  June was quite active with real estate sales.  There were 72 closed sales for the month with 13 of those being REOs and also 6 short sales closed.   The tax credit seems to have had the desired effect of encouraging sales.  It remains to be seen if the tr...
Kauai real estate seems to be picking up.  There are currently 177 properties in escrow, 31 LAND, 57 CONDOS, and 89 homes.  24 are bank owned, REO,  and 32 are shortsales.  60 properties sold in March, 11 were REO, and 5 were short sales. With the deadline on 4/30/2010 fast approaching, there has...
January was an active month as far as sales.  There were 52 sales total, 12 were REO properties.  This is a big increase over January 2009 when there were only 20 sales, so it looks as if things are starting to turn around for the Kauai market.
