Kauai Real Estate Continues to Move Toward a More Balanced Market

Kauai Absorption Rates Show A More Balanced Market

Kauai absorption rates continue to move toward a more balanced market.  The Lihue area leads the way with a supply of homes and condo well below 12 months. The South Shore, once a very troubled area, has also seen a dramatic recovery and now has the least supply of all of Kauai's resort areas (Princeville, Kapaa, Poipu).
