Princeville Kauai condo / house update for the week of Oct 12th to Oct 18th

Aloha,

It’s overcast, windy and rainy in Princeviile Kauai today as tropical storm Ana passes by to the South. Thank goodness we dodged another bullet. It’s been relatively quiet here other than that, as it seems many of the visitors left for greener pastures. Despite the weather, there was one condo sale and three homes went into escrow. Take a look below:

The last few weeks I’ve been discussing Condo and Homeeowner’s Associations and and the bylaws / house rules etc. that come with both. You should also know that within the Princeville at Hanalei Community Association, (PHCA) there are two other Homeowner’s Associations; the Sunset Drive and Mili Makani Community Associations. While the governing documents of these Associations are generally aligned with those of the PHCA, you may need to get approval from BOTH Associations before proceeding with activities like painting, landscaping etc.

Be a good neighbor and make sure you understand what association(s) governs your property. If you are unsure of this, just give the PHCA your address and I’m sure they can tell you. If you are purchasing, ask your agent. You should always be informed before buying or selling. Questions? Text or email me for a speedy response. That’s why I’m here – to make sure you get the facts.

Aloha Elaine

Although these signs at the start of the Kalalau trail did not apply on the day this picture was taken, they would certainly be applicable today as Ana goes by.

Kauai September 2014 Market Statistics

Aloha,

Sep 14 failed to meet or exceed Sep 13 Kauai sales, coming up 14% short, posting 70 sales compared to 81 last Sep. With 70 sales it’s still the second highest posting within the last 6 years. Sep 09 posted 39 sales, Sep 10 – 49, there were 55 for Sep 11 and 65 for Sep 12.

Overall, the market is still 4% up, with 783 sales to date compared to 755 at this time last year. This is due to higher sales in most of the previous months, but if things keep up the way there are now, there’s a good chance we will fall behind in year to date. At 783 we are well above past years, with the low being 343 sales year to date in 09. Unbelievable. Everytime I run the stats and compare to 09, I wonder how we all made it!

Sales volume is down 19%, going from $49M in Sep 13 to $40M this past month. When compared to the last 6 years, you can see how far the market has come, posting $21M in sales for Sep 09, $25M – Sep 10, $30M for Sep 11 and $46M in Sep 12. Seen from that perspective, it just looks like this Sep is taking the normal “breather” as vacations end, kids go back to school and adults get back to their normal lives.

Year to date sales volume is up by 17% with $496M in sales compared to $421M year to date last year. The low year to date for the last 6 years was, of course, 09 with $210M in sales.

As for median sales, residential is up to $580K from $490K, land fell from $405,500 to $262,500 while condos went up from $207,500 to $232,500 when comparing Sep 13 to 14. On year to date, the market is up across the board, with a median of $530K for residential this year to date compared to $515K last year to date. Land went from $300K to $332,500, and condos jumped up from $300K to $342K.

Questions? You know who to ask. Get the facts before buying or selling.

Whether you are thinking of buying a home or a condo, it’s a good idea to become very familiar with House Rules and / or Bylaws before completing your purchase. Review of condo or subdivision docs is a standard section in the 14 page (yes, it’s fourteen pages now!) purchase contract. The seller generally has anywhere from 7 to 10 days to provide these documents with the buyer having a similar amount of time to review.

Although the amount of paper can seem overwhelming, especially when purchasing a condo, it is imperative that you understand what you can and cannot do as an owner. Fines can be prohibitive, with some complexes assessing $100 after an initial warning. These fines usually increase with each subsequent offense up to a stated amount. In some cases, the Board can suspend privileges.

Problems sometimes occur when an owner vacation rents their unit and fails to provide the rules to their guests. Any offenses that result in a fine are charged to the owner – so be sure you (and your guests) can abide by the rules before purchasing. Each complex has their own sets of condo docs so be sure to thoroughly review them during the time allotted.

Homes in Princeville also have governing documents either under Phase 1 (Princeville at Hanalei Community) or Phase 11 which encompasses the homes at Queen Emmas Bluffs along with Villas on the Prince and Ka’iulani. Keep in mind that in Phase II rentals must be 30 days or longer – which means you cannot do weekly vacation rentals.

If you have questions about condo docs, and are already an owner, contact your management company for clarification. If you are purchasing, make sure to review everything thoroughly.

That’s it for this week. If you have questions before buying or selling, you know who to ask. Get the facts before and not after – when it’s often too late.

Aloha Elaine

Sales this past September were nowhere near those of September 13 posting only 70 sales compared to the 81 of the prior year. So are this year we’ve had 10 sales on our way to surpassing the 80 from October 13. Questions, let me know what they are. That’s why I’m here – so you get the facts.

There are two main areas in Princeville: the Princeville at Hanalei Community (phase 1) and Queen Emma’s Bluffs (phase 2.) Princeville at Hanalei has their own website at PrincevilleCommunity.com which you can access on a limited basis until you become a property owner.

This website does not include the homes and condos in the phase 2 which includes the homes on Aloalii Drive, Villas on the Prince and Ka’iulani. While phase 1 is pretty much built out there is still more development to come in the future in phase 2.

No matter where you live in Princeville, the experience is extraordinary due to the sheer beauty coupled with a great location and wonderful amenities. If you haven’t checked out all the restaurants and shopping at the Princeville Center, it is well worth the trip North to do so.

While you’re here, just drive a short distance beyond the Center for a spectacular view of all of Hanalei Valley from the lookout located on the left side of the road. Questions about Princeville or Princeville real estate? You know who to ask. That’s why I’m here – so you get the facts.

Kauai August 2014 Market Statistics

Aloha,

We’re heading towards the end of September so it’s high time I got to the Kauai August Market Statistics. Coming back from vacation the end of August threw me off my stride as I was met with the usual round of laundry, snail mail, bills, etc that piles up when traveling. While I got everything organized and caught up in due time, somehow the monthly stats slipped by.

Aug 13 and Aug 14 had exactly the same number of sales – which was 87. That leads to a year to date number of 713 compared to 674 end of Aug 13. We have a slight lead over 2013 but not by much. Still, it is a great improvement considering there were only 44 sales in Aug 09 and 60 in Aug 10. Things improved slightly in Aug 11 with 68 sales and again in Aug 12 with 73 sales.

Sales volume tells a different story with a 17% increase from Aug 13 to Aug 14. There were $50M in sales for 13 and $59M for 14. Sales volume has been steadily increasing since 2011 which had $30M in sales for the month and Aug 12 had $40M. I still wonder how we survived 09 which only posted $21M in sales! Year to date we are at $455M, up from $371M this time last year.

The only increase in median sales price for Aug 14 was in condos which went from $274K to $300K. Residential went from $685K in Aug 13 to $521,500 for Aug 14 with land posting a small decrease, going from $309K in Aug 13 to $295K for Aug 14. Keep in mind these are median prices, not averages.

For the full MLS statistical report, please click here to go to my website where I post it every month. Question? Don’t hesitate to text or email. I want to be sure you have the facts before buying or selling.

Aloha Elaine

Princeville Kauai condo / house update for the week of Sep 14th to Sep 20th

Aloha,

I hate to sound like a broken record – well, not really – but yet another sunny, hot and humid week in Princeviile Kauai has gone by. Yes, another great beach week. Also a good snorkel week (at least from what I can see from my Princeville condo) as the ocean continues to be like one huge bathtub! If you didn’t want to move to Kauai before, it should be at the top of your “to-do” list if you’ve been spending time here the last few weeks. Some of our best weather seems to be in August / September and this year is no exception.

I’ve heard complaints that it’s just w–a–y too humid (which it is as trades have been nonexistent to light) but I still love it. I’m fortunate, with a front and back lanai, to have steady breeze coming through no matter how light the trades. Although I love to see the waterfalls brought by rain, a good beach day is always the best. Now, on to your Princeville Kauai real estate update below:

Some buyers are unaware that Princeville is in a “Visitor Destination Area” also known as a “VDA.” Generally speaking, vacation rentals are only permitted in VDA’s. If you are seeking an investment that you can vacation rent, you need to make sure your property is located in a VDA, or is one of the few properties outside of a VDA that was grandfathered in and can be legally vacation rented.

You also should be aware that with some recent changes in the real property tax structure, as a vacation rental you will be paying much higher taxes than a long term rental or owner occupant. For 2014/15 the owner occupant tax rate is $3.05 per $1000 of taxable assessed value, for long term it is $6.05 and vacation rental is $8.85.

Any questions? – You know who to ask. I’m here so you get the facts before buying or selling.

Aloha Elaine

We’ve been having some beautiful sunsets.

Princeville Kauai condo/house update for the week of Sep 7th to Sep 13th

Aloha,

We’re had another amazing week of calm waters (at least as seen from my Princeville condo) light trades, sunshine and humidity. It’s a perfect time to go to Anini and find a cool spot to lay in the water. The other option is air conditioning! Some people are surprised to learn our warmest temps are in August and September. We love it though – gives us a perfect excuse for a beach day.

As for real estate, it was a relatively quiet week with one escrow in homes and two closings. Your update is below:

Princeville Kauai condo/house update for the week of Aug 31st to Sep 6th

Aloha,

This past week in Princeville Kauai has been simply beautiful with sunshine and blue skies – and quite a bit of high temps and humidity. That’s very easily remedied here by a trip to the beach. It seems buyers may have been there enjoying the holiday week as there was only one new escrows in condos. We did see some new listings and a couple of properties move closer to closing.

Last August there were 81 sales. We’re off to a slow start this August with only 7 sales as of today, Sunday. We’ll see how the month goes.

If you’ve been on Kauai in Princeville recently, you may have noticed that Pali Ke Kua has a new restaurant (again) called Hideaways Pizza Pub. We decided to walk over and give it a try, and did so just in time to enjoy the sunset from the Pali Ke Kua bluff. If you’re looking to purchase or do a vacation rental with great sunset views, Pali Ke Kua is one of the best complexes.

There were just enough clouds to prevent a green flash as the sun disappeared over the horizon, but the resulting pink clouds around an almost full moon was beautiful.

We went into the restaurant and checked out the menu. They certainly have much more than just pizza. There is Pasta, Surf and Turf, appetizers, soups, salads – pretty much the works. We had a pizza which was ok. Service was attentive and friendly. It’s always fun trying someplace new especially when it’s within walking distance of home.

If you’re thinking of buying or selling your own home / condo / land, and have questions, you know who to ask. I’m here to make sure you get the facts before buying or selling. Have a great week!

Aloha Elaine
