Kohala Coast Real Estate 2010 Sales (Where Are They?)

Where have all the closings gone? Six weeks into 2010, and only two parcels of land have sold in Kohala Ranch – with one lot and five homes in escrow in all the kohala coast neighborhoodswhere are the “high season” sales? Here closing, closing, closing…

What makes a house "eco?"

Yesterday I had the supreme pleasure of showing a gorgeous Puakea Bay estate. The weather cooperated and we giggled about how this house is actually more “eco-friendly” than the short sale down the way touting itself as an eco-built property. A 4,700+sqft spec home sitting fallow seems to me a waste of a lot of natural – and non-natural – resources.

Then it was on to Kohala Ranch to see Pueo Place. With a beautiful sunny day, whales jumping and slapping their tales the entire drive and views all the way down the coast… this estate home showed to perfection. What a joy to sit on the covered lanai having an intelligent discussion about whether to “buy or build” and the state of the market along the Kohala Coast.

Hawaii Life Clients are smart! Friday close to sunset, 72 degrees, light trade winds blowing, discussing a favorite topic – real estate…Dave and Lillia (not their real names, they know who they are) next time we’ll include pupus and cocktails! Pau hana, indeed!

You know, Katie, the sales always come in WAVES here on the Big Island. So far this year most of the activity for me has been on vacant land, and suddenly I showed five of my residential listings ranging from $1.2 to 2.2 million last Friday! I think those Kohala Coast residential buyers have finally arrived, and unlike this time last year, they see that Sellers have become realistic about pricing. Not to mention that you signed off on two offers for buyer clients of mine this weekend, one on Puako property and another down at the resorts…sometimes you get what you ask for!
