Kauai Sales Stats For October

Kauai home sales statistics have been released for the month of October 2009. The figures are island-wide comparisons of current sales versus year ago periods. Monthly values fluctuate widely and I've always preferred to use year-to-date data to average out the fluctuations. Nevertheless, it's hard to overlook the huge improvement in October sales.

It's important to keep in mind that the data reflects what is actually selling and not necessarily a change in value of a particular property. In my experience investor purchases tend to be in higher-priced resort areas whereas owner-occupant purchases tend to be more focused in value-priced areas. My buyer clients today are much more heavily weighted toward owner-occupant than in previous years when investors dominated. More sales in value-priced areas and fewer in higher-priced resort areas will drive median sales prices down. Of course the number of sales speak for themselves although here again, an absence of investor sales will drive the numbers down.

Number of Sales

Type October % Change   Year-To-Date % Change
Single Family Homes 32 +39%   201 -20%
Condominiums 16 +78%   129 -16%

 Median Sales Price

Type October % Change   Year-To-Date % Change
Single Family Homes $446,500 -13%   $470,000 -25%

Additional breakdown of this information is available to my clients upon request.
