Princeville Kauai condo / house update for May 15th to May 21st

Aloha from rainy (at least at this moment) Princeville Kauai!

If you were looking for full on beach days this past week, the North Shore was not the place to be. If you wanted to experience just how fast the weather can change from sunny and hot to a downpour, well, then, you’d have come to the right place. Even though I’ve lived here since ’91, the weather still amazes me. It sure keeps things interesting – and I often find myself wearing sunglasses while holding an umbrella.

It was a busy real estate week, mainly due to all the new listings; 6 new condos and 2 new homes. As far as new escrows, there was only one each. Take a look for yourself:

That’s it for this weeks activity. Some people wonder if there’s enough to do on Kauai. I found an interesting app called Meetup. You just put in your town or city and activities in the area come up. It’s just another way of finding out about the many, many things available to do here. There are also several groups you can search Facebook for Kauai groups and “like” a few of those in order to get activity notifications. There’s plenty to do here if you’re interested…or maybe all you really need is a lazy day on one of our many fabulous beaches.

When you’r ready to make a permanent move to Kauai, or are thinking about selling, please give me a call. I’m here so you get the facts! Have a wonderful week in your paradise, wherever it may be.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

Elaine

Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Apr 10th to Apr 16th

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!

If you are one of those people who files their income taxes at the last minute, you’re in luck this year! Due to the Washington D.C. Emancipation Day holiday being observed on April 15 instead of April 16, 2016, Tax Day is on Monday – so if you’re taxes still aren’t done, you have ONE MORE DAY to meet the deadline.

Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Apr 3 to Apr 9

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!

Despite it’s depiction as a “laid back” outer island, there’s always something to do on Kauai. It may not be as “in your face” as some other Islands, but with a bit of digging and a few connections, you can always find something of interest.

For example, if you are a dog lover, you definitely don’t want to miss the “Paws around the Park” on Saturday, April 30th, from 10:30 to 1:30PM at the North Shore Dog Park, 5445 Kahiliholo in Kilauea. This family event is the first annual fundraiser for the North Shore dog park. For more information please “like” the North Shore Dog Park on Facebook.

Have a wonderful week in your Paradise, wherever it may be! For all the facts before buying or selling, please text or email me. That’s why I’m here.

Aloha Elaine

Kauai March 2016 Market Statistics

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

March was a busy month, coming in like a lion and going out the same way, posting a new high this year of 105 sales! This is a 19% increase over Mar 15 which had only 88 sales and a 56% increase over the 67 sales posted for Feb 16. This is the first time we’ve seen a triple digit posting in the last 6 years.

Year to date, sales are up by 15%, with 215 posted year to date Mar 15 compared to 248 as of the end of this Mar.

Sales volume is down by .3%, going from $103,444,439 sold in Mar 15 to $103,054,420 in Mar 16. You can’t get much closer than that! It’s clear that some big ticket items have been selling these past two years, as sales volume for Mar over the last 6 years was nowhere close – Mar 14 posted $56,220,350; Mar 13 was $36,680,757; Mar 12 $38,622,150 and Mar 11 came in with $41,354,580. Quite a change.

Year to date we are at $212,526,560 for Mar 16 which is up 10% over Mar 15′s sales volume of $192,467,896.

Median sales price for residential is down 29%, going from $967,500 in Mar 15 to $683,500 this past Mar. Year to date residential median went from $701,000 in last Mar to $652,000 for this Mar.
