I received a call from a client the other day who insisted our real estate market was "dead". Perhaps to him it is because none of his 3 listings have sold yet. He cited statistics from a troubled area on the mainland suggesting that brokerages there were closing their doors and going home. I certainly hope that is not the case where you are.
I feel I must carry the flag and say that is definitely is not the case here on Kauai. Kauai is a small island of a bit over 60,000 residents plus a large number of tourists. We're holding our own here and sales are good. So far in 2008 we have closed 75 homes and 54 condos. The South Shore area which includes the popular Poipu had 16 home sales and 14 condos. Yes that's fewer than the boom years but still reflective of a healthy market. Kauai Rocks!
