Kauai Absorption Rate for July 2011--Continued Improvement

Our Kauai real estate absorption rate continues to move toward a balanced market although we're not there yet except for the Lihue condo market.  There has been a huge improvement compared to a little over 2 years ago (see 2nd chart).  Of course that is from a seller's perspective; for buyers it's time to act while there is still a significant tilt toward a buyer's market.

Back in 2009 practically the entire chart was red (awful for sellers but wonderful for buyers)

Nice charts and info. I just took a class in the QR codes so I finally know how to use them.

QR codes seem to be slow in catching on here on Kauai but that will probably soon change.

Aloha!

That's good news for your island and maybe a sign that things are returning to normal finally.

I am surprised to see the South end so deep in the Red on your graph, does that include Poipu area?  We frequent Poipu and last time I was there ,Feb. 2011,  found prices still higher than I expected.  I thought thought sales must be brisk but not according to your chart.

Hi Bill,

 

South Shore sales show huge improvements but it's still heavily weighted toward a buyer's market.  As you will know, this is a large resort area and when mainland buyers quit buying vacation properties, the inventory went through the roof.  Now we're down to a 28 month supply of condos compared to the former 156 months 2 years ago.
