How to Find Out if You Qualify
So far in Ho’oluana at Kohea Loa, there have been 18 homes reserved by home buyers, and there are 2 available single-side duplexes for purchase. Prices have ranged from $467,000 to $610,000. The actively listed duplex homes are set aside as “affordable housing.” Per Kauai County Guidelines, designated affordable duplex homes at Ho’oluana are to only be sold to Kauai County residents who income qualify at or below 140% of Kauai Median Household Income. Visit Kauai.gov/housing for current income charts. Buyback restrictions will be recorded as part of the deed and encumber the affordable unit for a period of 20 years. Applicants must be owner-occupants at all times during the buy-back restriction period.
The upcoming lottery for homes is slightly different and does not have the income restrictions that encumber the duplexes. Per County guidelines, homes are to only be sold to Kauai County residents for the first six months of release by lottery. Priority is given to Kauai residents who do not own property anywhere in the United States.
