Kauai Real Estate Prices Seeing Mostly Double-Digit Increases

Compared to the same period last year, overall Kauai sales price percentage increases for the first 11 months of 2013 are up double-digits for residential homes & land and modestly up for condos.  Results vary by zone as is illustrated in the table below.  Median sales prices reflect what has sold and not necessarily a change in valuations.  Tight inventory in some parts of the island is putting upward pressure on prices.
