Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Aug 16th to Aug 22nd

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 exhibited a little of everything, with several new listings, one new contingency, one sale and one unit that moved to under contract – along with some other odds and ends. Take a look:

New Listings:

Newly listed on Kamehameha is 3899, priced at $959K after selling for $800K in 5/13.

3925 Kamehameha, a 4 bedroom home, is listed for $988K since selling for $1.585M in 7/05. This is a bank REO needing a little TLC. It was withdrawn today from another agency while listed as a short sale for $1.150M from 3/15 to 8/15.

This seller apparently thought they could flip this home, as the very day escrow closed, it came back on the market as a new listing from 7/05 to 3/07, starting at $2.375M and reducing to $2.3M. The home was again listed from 11/07 to 12/08, starting at $2.475M and reducing to $2.150M, from 6/09 to 11/09 for $1.625M, from 11/09 to 6/10 starting at $1.625M and reducing to $1.570M, from 6/10 to 3/12 for $1.570M and finally from 2/13 to 5/13 for $998K.

After 5 market days priced at $695K, 4838 Ou Place was withdrawn.

Price Changes:

Now priced at $1.120M after a reduction from $1.220M, 5029 Emmalani Drive last sold for $726,299 in 11/13 as a bank REO.

As of today Sunday, there have been 41 sales on the way to our target of 87. Condos are doing their part, but Princeville houses are lagging behind. Islandwide, there have been 27 single family home sales, the majority of which were in the Koloa zone with 17, followed closely by the Kawaihau zone with 16. If things stay on track we should be able to surpass last Aug’s sales.

Questions? You know who to ask. Text or email for the facts before buying or selling.

We’ll just have to wait and see what this coming week brings to find out what Mother Nature has in store for us.

Have a great week and enjoy your Paradise wherever it may be.

Aloha Elaine

Kauai July 2015 Market Statistics

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

Jul 15 managed to outperform Jul 14 by 8%, posting 91 sales compared to 84 sales last Jul. That’s quite an accomplishment, given that the month started out somewhat sluggish. With Guillermo still in the vicinity of the Islands, things may get off to a slow start this month, but if Jun and Jul are any indicator, we should also see an increase in sales for Aug also.

The 91 sales this past month is the second highest of the last 6 years, with the highest being Jul 13 with 94 sales, followed by Jul 14 with 84, Jul 12 with 72, Jul 11 with 68 and Jul 10 being the low year with only 60. That’s two sales a day! Thankfully, we’re past that!

Year to date we have only 578 sales down from Jul 14 year to date which posted the 6 year high of 628 sales. The low year to date was, of course, Jul 10 with a mere 463. Quite an improvement when you look at today’s stats.

Sales volume is up by 27% over Jul 14, which posted $52M in sales while Jul 15 had $66M. Interestingly, even though year to date Jul 15 is lagging behind slightly in the number of sales when compared to Jul 14, the sales volume is ahead by 10% with $439M in volume as of end of Jul 15, while there was only $397M in volume this time last year.

Jul 15 year to date sales volume is far and away higher than anything in the last 6 years, with year to date Jul 10 coming in with only $249M in sales. Pretty amazing when you compare the two. Year to date Jul 11 wasn’t much better at $271M nor was year to date Jul 12 was at $281M. Year to date Jul 13 showed signs of recovery with $321M in sales volume.

Even residential median sales price is up from $495K in Jul 14 to $612K in Jul 15. Year to date median is $530K for Jul 14 and $620K for Jul 15.

Condos fared equally well, going from $378,500 in Jul 14 to $460K in Jul 15. Year to date for condos went from $350K to $355K. Land took a big leap from $250K in Jul 14 to $385K in Jul 15. Year to date for land actually went down slightly from $355K year to date Jul 14 to $350K in Jul 15.

To see the full statistical report as compiled by the Multiple Listing service, please click here where I post it on my website each month.

I know I keep saying this but I do so because it’s true — there are still good buys all over Kauai. You just have to know what you want, be patient looking for the desired property and be ready to write when the opportunity presents itself. A good first step is to get pre-qualifed by a local lender – I can recommend several if you need a referral.

Any other questions, just ask.

In the meantime, enjoy your Paradise whether it’s on Kauai or in your own hometown.

Aloha Elaine

Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Jul 26th to Aug 1st

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

Mother Nature continues to have her way with us, bringing not only exceptionally high temps in the upper 80′s, but we also have hurricane Guillermo approximately 1100 east-southeast of Hilo, currently rated as a catagory 2. It is expected to weaken to a tropical storm by the time it reaches Hawaii (if, in fact, it stays on the current track) and will most likely bring high surf along with disruption of the trades later on in the week.

The real estate market was slow, with no new listings in either houses or condos, two new condo escrows (but none for homes) and four home sales. Overall, not much new activity. Here is your update:

BACK ON THE MARKET

275836 CND A 365 4-5-4-5-23-6 FS $499,000 Plantation #212 1,153 #212 2/2.00

284181 CND A 78 4-5-4-5-39-186 LH $489,007- Cliffs #8306 1,186 #8306 2/2.00

This information has been supplied by third parties and has not been independently verified by Hawaii Information Service and is, therefore, not guaranteed.

Back on the Market:

Plantation 212 expired after 364 days while priced at $499K. The purchase price was $560K in 3/07. It then returned to active status the following day.

Contingent:

Puamana 10A, with a price tag of $390K, went into escrow for the third time. Hopefully, the third time will be a charm. The seller bought this unit for $425K in 11/13. Plantation 1622 found a buyer after 129 market days while priced at $549K. This unit sold for $399,901 in 8/12 as a bank REO.

Withdrawn:

Kaiulani 42 was withdrawn after 232 market days priced at $1.550M. This townhome last sold from the developer for $1,699,270 in 2/07.

Price Changes:

Every couple of weeks Puamana 11A makes a negligible $1000 price reduction. It is now $432K. The last sale was in 6/05 for $486,500.

Cliffs 8306 is priced at $489K down from $499K. The seller bought this leasehold property for $305K in 12/12.

Now on to your Princeville Kauai single family home update, which certainly had a lot of sales in one week, but no new escrows. Take a look:

This is the end of July (already) – despite some sluggish days, as of today, Sunday, there have been 90 sales, a 7% increase over the 84 sales from July 2014. Yay. Let’s hope the market keeps the momentum as we head into the end of summer. Any questions about real estate, you know who to ask. Just text or email for the facts before buying or selling.

Aloha Elaine

Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Jul 19th to Jul 25th

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!

It was another interesting weather week with flash flood warnings issued by the Civil Defense. If you are not signed up for auto-notification of flash flood watch/ warnings and other Civil Defense issues, and you want to be, please click on this link then look for the “sign up now” box to the right.

You can get a text message, email or a phone call notifying you of dangerous or potentially dangerous weather situations. Very helpful whether you are an Island resident, an off Island property owner or a visitor. As far as I can tell, you don’t have to be a Kauai Property owner or resident to receive the notifications.

The Kalalau Trail was closed for a period of time due to the swollen streams and hot, muggy weather was left in the aftermath of the rains. Mother Nature always keeps things interesting on Kauai.

Despite the less than ideal weather, there was a smattering of real estate activity here and there. There were several new condo listings, one condo went into escrow and two others closed. Here is your weekly Princeville Kauai condo activity:

As i was working on this week’s blog, I learned that our dear “Aloha Vet,” Dr. Scott Sims, passed away Saturday. I am heartbroken. We all knew he was battling cancer but his fight had just begun and I, for one, thought I would get to see him at least one more time. He was such a giving and gentle soul to one and all. His spirit extended across the Islands.

Even if you weren’t in need of him that particular day, it brought a smile to your face just thinking about the last time you saw him. I know three horses that were there waiting to greet him – My Bics and my two friend’s horses, Honey and Kounselor. Dr. Scott Sims was universally loved by all who had the privilege to know him. He will be eternally missed.

Aloha Elaine

Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Jul 12th to Jul 18th

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

You really have to love the weather in Hawaii, and I don’t mean just the tropical breezes and moderate temperatures. This week, while Kauai was sweltering under higher than usual temperatures, Mauna Kea, on the Big Island, got enough snowfall on the summit that the road was closed! Now, that’s a real study in contrasts!

Real estate activity was also on the sluggish side, with only one new escrow in condos and none in single family homes. Here’s your update:

Price Changes:

4862 Victoria Loop, which sold for $1.039M in 11/07, is now $824K down from $845K. The last sale was for $1.039M in 11/07. 4391 Emmalani was priced at $1.195M and is now $1.175M. The last sale was for land in 6/88 for $95K. 4555 Emmalani reduced from $1.315M to $1.295M. The prior sale was for $600K in 6/02. 4123 Kekualike Lane, which is in escrow, reduced to $699K from $748K, which may be an indication of the sale price. The seller bought this home for $260K in 1/98.

As of today, Sunday, there have been 54 sales as we try to meet or exceed the 84 posted last July. June put forth a good effort and we’re all hoping July will do the same. Questions? Please do not hesitate to ask via text or email. I’m here to make sure you get the facts before buying or selling.

Aloha,

Elaine

Kauai June 2015 Market Statistics

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!

Much to my surprise, Jun 15 ended with 104 sales, which is an increase over Jun 14 with only 101. Jun 15 got off to such a slow start I would have bet against this happening at the beginning but I’m thrilled to see the uptick in market activity. This is the best June in the last 6 years, with the low being in Jun 11 with only 65 sales.

Year to date we’re down a bit, with only 481 sales compared to this time last Jun which had 544 sales. Even Jun 13 was higher with 494 while the low was Jun 10 with a mere 345.

Sales volume is up across the board both for the month and year to date. Jun 14 posted $60M in sales while Jun 15 racked up $66M. This is a substantial increase over the recent past. June 11 was the low with $28M, followed by Jun 10, with $35M, while Jun 12 and 13 both had $47M in sales.

Year to date is also up, posting $372M compared to $344M that had sold this time last Jun. The year to date low for the last 6 years was Jun 10 with $181M in sales.

Looking at the median price, we are up slightly, from $560,750 for residential in Jun 14 to $570K for Jun 15. Condos went down slightly, from $307K to $306,504 for Jun 15. Still this is higher than we’ve been seeing, especially when you look at Jun 12 which had a median home price of $400K and Jun 11 which had a median condo price of $290K.

To see the full statistical report for this month, please click here where I post it on my blog each month. The number to beat for last July is 84 and as of today, July 9th there have been 28 sales.

If you have any questions on Kauai Real Estate do not hesitate to text or email me to get the facts.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

Elaine
