Aloha from Princeville Kauai,It’s been somewhat dreary, overcast and cool this past week – with occasional warm periods. If you’ve been here, you know the weather changes in a heartbeat. It’s the time of year when it’s easiest to tell locals from visitors. You’ll see some people with sweaters zipped up, wearing Uggs with their jeans while those right next to them are in tank tops, shorts and slippers. The contrast is amusing.Of course, I’m the group with the jeans and Uggs. Having been here since ’91 my blood is thinner than most, and as one of my friends who has been here since 2013 mentioned, it doesn’t take long for that to happen – as she sat bundled up in jacket, jeans and Uggs, sipping hot coco.As for real estate, we are at 68 sales as of today Sunday, as we head towards the goal ...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,February held steady, posting 65 sales, which is an 8% increase over the 60 sales from last Feb., but no match for the 75 properties sold Jan 16. Within the last 6 years, only Feb 14 outperformed with 67 sales. The low was Feb 12 with 61 sales.Year to date we are ahead by 13 sales, with 127 sales this time last year compared to 140 at the end of this Feb. The only higher “year to date” was Feb 14 with 149 transactions. Overall, the real estate activity seems brisk, interest rates are good, and it’s easy to see from the traffic on the roads, that visitors are definitely on Island.Sales volume is down slightly from $53M in Feb 15 to $51M this past Feb. Feb 13 and 14 had $43M in sales, Feb 12 a mere $38M and Feb posted $45M. Year to date we are way up with $107...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,It was an exciting week here in the Islands, with huge surf coming in just in time for the Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational held in Waimea Bay on Oahu’s North Shore. The event was last held in 2009 as the event has the requirement that open-ocean swells reach a minimum height of 20 feet, which translates to 30′-40′ faces. This year’s event, the first since 2009, set records as having the largest waves in the history of the event, 60′, which has been taking place since 1984.If you have never heard of Eddie Aikau or the event, do yourself a favor and Google it. He was quite a waterman, athlete, family man….He was quite amazing.As for Real Estate, condo activity remained robust with 2 new listings, 2 escrows and 2 sales. Apparently, not everyone was glued to t...
