Aloha with news of Princeville Kauai!May you have a very Mele Kalikimaka – can’t believe next Friday is Christmas already.Here in Maun there is little physical evidence of Christmas, with only an occasional small fake Christmas tree in one or two of the stores and / or Santa’s face painted on the door or window, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. However, they do take full advantage of the holiday season to get together with friends and family, as most restaurants and many other stores closed as of Thursday the 18th and are closed until the New Year. There are a few restaurants open Christmas day; most of them are associated with the various tourist lodges so there are places for visitors to go.As for real estate, there were a few last minute shoppers but not many. Here is your update:...

Aloha with news from Princeville Kauai.Due to time zone confusion this update is somewhat late. Next time it will be very early. This month the number to exceed is 80 and as of today, Sunday, there have been 27 sales. While there were no new escrows in condos, homes made up for it with three properties going into escrow, although it was offset by the four new residential listings.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,It was a busy real estate week, for both condos and – fortunately, also for homes. New listings, escrow, even some sales – this week had it all.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!There was quite a bit of momentum in the second half of the month, so much so that we ended up easily surpassing the 78 sales of last Oct by 12% for a total of 87! It’s quite likely this number will increase slightly as agents report their end of Oct sales the beginning of the week. Year to date we are only 3.5% behind with835 sales so far compared to last yea’s 866.It was a beautiful week with many perfect beach days – which apparently got the buyer’s moving as the condo market was very active, with new listings, escrows and sales.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,Hurricane Olaf has stayed far out in the Pacific away from our shores, although I understand that it brought some dangerous surf and ocean conditions to the Island.Also having a great deal of good luck with hurricanes is Mexico who escaped Patricia’s wrath as it diminished greatly upon landfall. What a relief that was! Hurricane Iniki was a category 4 and I was fearful of the damage a category 5 storm would bring to Mexico! But all’s well.Our beautiful fall days have brought the condo buyers to life but everyone is asking where the Princeville home buyers are. Take a look at the 3 new listings, 6 new escrows and 2 sales that took place in condos this week then we’ll look at houses:NEW LISTINGS288507 CND A 4 $1,349,000 4-5-3-6-22-29 FS Kaiulani #29 2,864 #29 ...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!It was a V-E-R-Y slow week with no new listings or escrows and just one sale in condos.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!This was an interesting week, with minimal activity which excluded any price changes in either condos or houses- quite a rarity! Despite the limited activity, we still managed to put two condos and two houses into escrow and sell a total of three properties.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,Although there was a lot of activity in the condo segment of the Princeville Kauai market, most of it was new listings, price reductions and a couple of sales. There was only one new escrows!It was a difficult week to get around Princeville as the PHCA started work on resurfacing the main road, which resulted in delays due to one way traffic. This work is expected to take several weeks so give yourself a few extra minutes to go into or out of the resort.

Princeville, Hawaii Condo Sales Market Report thru September 2015The hot and humid summer and many of the hurricane threats are behind us now and the weather here in Princeville is so much more comfortable.  So how hot was the condo market?The number of sales thru Third Quarter 2015 (71) is about even with the number of sales thru Third Quarter 2014 (70). In 2014 the full year shows that 84 condos sold. So 13 condo sales in Fourth Quarter 2015 will bring us on par with 2014.  Currently there are 11 Princeville condos that are contingent (sale is pending).  The year-to-date 2015 median sales price ($535,000) is well-above the full year median sales price for Princeville condos in 2014. But still 65% below the peak of 2008 ($825,000).  As of October 3, 2015,  there are 78 Princeville cond...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,Despite the various “disturbances” sent this way by Mother Nature, we have – so far – managed to evade any major damage. As of Sunday morning, the tropical storm watch which had been issued for the Big Island, was dropped as tropical storm Niala continued to move away from the Islands. Another bullet dodged!Despite occasional bouts of heavy rain, Kauai buyers sand sellers still managed to get out and do some trading- take a look:288352 CND A 4 $375,000 4-5-4-5-17-52 FS Alii Kai#14D 1,020 #14D 2/2.00288341 CND A 4 $529,000 4-5-4-5-23-34 FS Plantation #912 1,153 #912 2/2.00288460 CND A 1 $599,999 4-5-4-5-39-138 FS Cliffs #5308 1,186 #5308 2/2.00BACK ON THE MARKET275836 CND A 422 $499,000 4-5-4-5-23-6 FS Plantation #212 1,153 #212 2/2.00CONTINGENT SALES282625 C...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,This week was all about the tsunami watch, which was caused by the 8.3 earthquake in Chile. Fortunately, like the previous hurricanes, the tsunami failed to present any great danger and we were spared from Mother Nature once again. Also, our tradewinds finally returned and we are back to our beautiful warm weather tempered by the cooling breezes we love so much.It was probably a combination of the tsunami along with the fact that September is typically a slower month, that left us with minimal activity in the condo department. Still, there was one new escrow and two sales.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,The hot, muggy weather is still with us – ask anyone who has been around for awhile and they’ll tell you this is the muggiest summer ever. The best place to be is at the beach sitting in the water. Fortunately, we have an abundance of beautiful beaches, so it’s very easy to find your own personal “cooling off” spot.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,This week I DO NOT have any new hurricanes / tropical storms to report, although remnants of both Ignacio and Jimena brought high surf and heavy rains to the Islands, primarily on Oahu and the Big Island. Kauai saw it’s fair share of both and was under a flash flood warning for a period of time, but managed (so far) to escape any real damage.Of course, the storms have continued to bring us extremely high humidity leaving all of us sweltering. It’s a good time to go shopping in an air conditioned store or go to a movie just to escape for a bit.The weather may have been the cause for so many cancelled escrows but it’s really hard to know what causes a transaction to fall apart. In condos this week, three units came back on the market out of escrow and one home...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,Not wanting to break from the tradition of the last few weeks, we have yet two new tropical storms / hurricanes to announce since Kilo passed us by. These are now the 14th and 15th tropical storms / hurricanes to share our space in the ocean and I can only trust they will take the same bypass route as their predecessors. Hurricane Ignacio is currently a category 3 and located roughly 420 miles east of Hilo while Hurricane Jimena, a category 4, is still about 1700 miles away, following behind Ignacio! Add in Kilo and you have the rare occurrence of three hurricanes in the Pacific at once!Despite the unseasonably hot, humid, muggy weather, suitable only for sitting in the ocean, some buyers managed to get out and about and create some movement in the condo mar...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,It seems every week I’m talking about yet another tropical depression / hurricane that might or might not impact the Hawaiian Islands, and this week is no different. This week’s culprit is known as Kilo and it is currently a tropical depression passing about 400 miles SSW of Honolulu. Let’s hope it keeps on that track.The weather has continued with unseasonably high temps in the 90′s along with extreme humidity and minimal trades. All in all, it’s a great time to go shopping wherever there’s A/C and / or to go to the pool or beach and park yourself in the water for the day. This is definitly the hottest summer I can remember, and I’ve been here since 91. Others, who have been here even longer, say the same thing. Hot, hot, hot!The condo market this week exhi...
