Kauai Returns to a Balanced Market With Some Shortgages

The Kauai real estate market continues to improve and at the end of 2012, many areas are back to a balanced market for single family homes.  In some areas, competition from buyers is keen with multiple offers on well-priced properties in good condition.  Hot areas on Kauai are Lihue, Kapaa, and now Kalaheo.  Condos are improving as well and I have buyers waiting for new listings in some projects where all existing inventory is under contract.

The chart below gives the breakdown by island region.

I provide additional information to my clients so that they have insight not available to the general public.  Buyers and sellers are welcome to ask how they may become a client.

Joan--I'm anticipating a bright year for sellers, a tougher year for buyers.  We shall see as the year unfolds.
