JUST SOLD! 44-3173 KALANIAI RD Honokaa, HI   Leave a comment


Character….history….a storybook setting make this Kalopa property standout from the ordinary. This home incorporates into its core the Old Paauilo School, moved to this property from its original location many years ago. Additions over time have enlarged this shingle covered residence. Ocean views peak out form the trees. 

A large barn with bath and office was built later to accommodate the horses who once roamed these pastures. 


Attached to the barn is a two bay carport, adding parking spots to the other carport fronting the home. Your vision and some tender loving care can turn this into a true charmer. 

The property is located about a half mile below the entrance to Kalopa State Park. Ride your horse up to the park to take advantage of the park’s equestrian trails. Enjoy the quiet neighborhood where I’o fly. This nearly 5-acres extends from Kalaniai Road to Kalopa Gulch at its rear boundary. The house and barn sit through the gate at the rear portion of the lot. Road front paddocks create a buffer zone that hides the home and barn from the street. 


Do you see your horses and cows happily munching through the pastures? A homestead of your own in Kalopa!

If you are thinking of buying or selling a home please contact me!

Waikoloa Market Update ~ October 2017   Leave a comment

Aloha and happy Monday to you! The Waikoloa market is going strong with slightly more than 3% appreciation in the last 3-months, click here for: Full Market Report, over the previous three (click here for: homes sold in that period).

The previous three included several bank owned homes to lower the average price. Inventory is still limited. There are more buyers than inventory. Buyers today are less likely to invest sweat equity, preferring a home in good condition, ready to move in and priced at market. Homes within these parameters will sell in days to buyers waiting for the right home at the right price. Not a bubble market where everything sells at any price. You can see this reflected in the full report that shows homes overpriced or in poor condition still languishing on the market. Saw some new homes finished well that did not seem grossly overpriced finally sell when the price was lowered to the market value. There are a lot of buyers who are patient and exercising good judgement. Banks continue to expand their loan programs to be more accessible to a wider range of buyers while adhering to conservative lending practices. No funny money if you can breathe loans!

Rental market remains very tight and monthly rental rates continue to rise. Average rent in Waikoloa now hovers between $2,000-$2,500 per month. Unemployment is very low with a strong construction and high visitor counts. There is a labor shortage in many sectors and lack of rentals discourages new labor sources.

There are developers starting to move on purchasing shovel ready projects or dusting off their plans to get ready to start building more homes. The Vista Waikoloa project is an appealing project of around 30 or so homes starting around $600,000. It is another Town home project with good design and finishes.

Ainamalu at Waikoloa Beach Resort is a very attractively priced community for resort homes. It is a green development offering photovoltaic power, propane farm piping gas to the homes (rare to have this set up on the Big Island) and eco-friendly construction. No great views but beaches within walking and biking distance is a big draw as are the Greenways throughout the neighborhood. The soon to be built community center is pretty WOW. They are moving forward with construction steadily and expect to start delivering completed homes soon. Demand is very solid for this project.

Please feel free to call anytime to discuss Waikoloa further. Always good to hear from you!

Aloha and a hui hou~
