Waikoloa Village Homes Market Update   Leave a comment

It’s officially summer….time for the mid-year Waikoloa Village Market Report. Inventory is low at 31 homes currently for sale ranging in price from $310,000 to a high of $847,750 with most homes listed in the mid-$400,000s. There are 30-homes in escrow, waiting for their sale to close at this moment. Wow! There have been 48-homes sold so far in 2014. Short sales and foreclosures still appear and sell quickly if priced right, but they are no longer a major part of the market. The limited inventory may nudge prices up in Waikoloa for the near future. The lack of vacant land to build on here also puts upward pressure on the prices. Click here to see Year to Date market report.

The first quarter of 2014 saw 21 sales at an average price of $434,257. Homes were selling within 97% of their listed price in an average of 94 Days on Market (DOM). This compares well to the first quarter of 2013 where the average price was $335,369 of a total of 16 sales. That is a year to year, first quarter price increase of 29% and a 31% increase in the number of sales.

There were 27 homes that sold in the second quarter of 2014 at the average price of $472,348. Sellers realized, on the average, about 97% of their asking price in an average of 91 days on market. There was large volume increase of 28% over the number of homes sold in the first quarter of this year. This same quarter in 2013 saw more sales, 31, but at a 21 % lower average price of $390,569. The 2014 second quarter price is also higher than the third quarter 2013 average of $368,539, but, lower than the 2013 fourth quarter average price of $496,999. This average may be higher because only 22 homes sold in the last quarter of 2013, one which was over a $1,000,000.

There are a lot of buyers looking to call Waikoloa home. If interest rates remain low and the world stays calm, we expect to see prices continue to move into the upward direction.

As always, please feel free to call or email to discuss. Be happy, stay well and a hui hou
