Kauai 2013 Real Estate Sales Summary (Thru Feb)

Compared to the same period last year, overall Kauai sales prices for the first two months of 2013 are up for residential homes & land and down 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 many parts of the island is expected to put upward pressure on prices over the long term.
