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~

Island of Hawaii Sweet Spots on the Sea   Leave a comment

 

   North Kona

The rush of the winter market has subsided for the moment…or has it? The past few years have shown that the snowbird market is not necessarily the best time for the astute buyer to buy Big Island property, especially the “trophy” properties along the ocean and in the resorts. The last weeks of April into the first week of May are experiencing a vigorous buying frenzy. Properties listed in December anticipating ambitious appreciation have now languished long enough that the serious sellers are now motivated to move on and let go. So these oceanfront Big Island properties may now be ripe to pick up at realistic market prices.

The first one is south of and adjacent to Waikoloa Beach Resort.  Click here to see.   It is 27 acres directly on a white sand beach.  The conservation designation may limit what you can build to 5,000 square feet of improvements, conservation zones vary based on each locations’ unique classification.  But waking up to the blue skies, seas and white sands under a warm sun is heavenly.  It is priced well at $7,000,0000 when compared to the slightly smaller parcel of 21+ acres a bit more to the south and less easily accessed property to the south asking $20,000,000, click here to see this listing

Go North!  North Kohala now offers this totally different oceanfront world (Click here), one where cliffs meet the sea in front of rolling acres of North Kohala pasture lands.  The views both inland and seaward are awe inspiring…really.  If this moves you, you have to check out my listings along the shore that have just seen a significant price reduction.  This oceanfront acreage graced by a rare stand of indigenous Hala and the adjoining virtual oceanfront parcel together equal almost 50 acres.  They can be purchased separately or together with the Jim Cutler designed home on the mauka boundary to create a 73+-acre oceanfront estate The seller promises a nice discount if these three are purchased as one. 

Drive south of Kona to historic Kealakekua Bay.  Along its south shore is a secluded, gated road; Keawaiki.  Go further down this Road and you will come to Puu Honua o Ho’onaunau, also known as the City of Refuge. Spent a lot of time here lately in this magical place with clients who purchased a super sweet oceanfront home last month.   There are very few places like this where one watches lauipala, (yellow tangs) swim in clear ocean water from the shore, seeing them as clearly as if you were in the water with them.  Which is really where you should be; swimming, surfing, kayaking and playing in the warm waters of this black sand beach bay.  This property, click here, is a true Kama’aina home on almost one and a half acres.  You have to wonder how much you will use the pool when you have the best ocean waters in the world to play in a few steps away. 

Thought since we are talking ocean you might want to think about this property that just saw a nice price reduction.  Here on Kaiolu Drive off Ali’i Drive (click here) is a double lot that is truly oceanfront though technically not (call me for the explanation). Then there is Puako….one of my favorite homes is still for sale. It is well priced at $5,950,000 given that this winter saw a sale of another home on the ocean here for $7,250,000. The cute little cottage across the street on the mauka side of Puako Beach Drive is also still for sale…there has been one price reduction so far, maybe an offer closer to the most recent mauka sale would now be appreciated. 

Lets not forget the lovely oceanfront Pauo’a Beach at Mauna Lani.  This sparkling new home feels as much like oceanfront as non-oceanfront can.  The resort location allows one the opportunity to walk to many of the nearby amenities.  It should be finished by next month.

Enjoy your week!  Stay well, be healthy and call if you want more information or to schedule an appointment.  A hui hou
