3 Bed/2 Bath Wailua Homesteads Home Sold for 97.7% of List Price on Kauai

I was so happy to have the honor of representing the sellers of this beautiful 3 bedroom/2 bathroom house in the Wailua Homestaeds. We ending up receiving multiple offers and sold this home for $410,000 – 97.7% of list price…This shows that even though times have been tough for home sellers, with good marketing and appropriate pricing, you will get results and sell your home on Kauai.

Record Low Interest Rates and Inventory Bringing Kauai Home Buyers ‘Off the Fence’

Currently, in this part of the island of Kauai (the east side), there is a lack of inventory. It’s been a buyer’s market for so long and now, finally, after many years, things are looking up for sellers. The combination of few homes on the market and record low interest rates are bringing out the buyers that have been sitting on the sidelines just waiting.

If you are considering selling your home here on Kauai, this may be the time. The one thing to keep an eye on are the interest rates. The low rates are giving buyers lots of power to buy right now. These rates are making home ownership a reality for first time buyers as well as giving the investors an incentive.

If the rates go back up buyers will not be able to afford as much house…This could keep house prices from rising any further for a time, or worst case scenario, bring house prices back down a bit. Yikes! No seller or potential seller wants to hear that!

What’s the Right Price to List Your Kauai Home At?

As I’m sure all of you home owners know, there are many factors at play when finding the right price to list your home at. To mention just a few:

  • Condition
  • Location
  • Number of beds/baths
  • Usability of the land

Of course, contacting a real estate agent and having him or her do a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) on your home is a must, in my opinion. This report will include all the similar homes in the area that have sold, are for sale, and are in escrow. It will give you an idea of what homes are selling for and not just listing for.

You ever watch Pawn Stars? The seller of a particular item will say, ‘I see these for sale on Ebay for for $20,000!’ Then Rick will say, ‘Yes, that’s the “asking” price. But, do you really know what it’s selling for?’ Oh, Rick…

Anyway, I really enjoy this part of real estate. Pricing a home is not an exact science. It’s a combination of crunching the numbers, knowing the market, and having a bit of an intuition for it…

For Kauai Home Sellers

If you are considering selling your house here on Kauai feel free to contact me. I would be happy to take a look and give you a free CMA, and if you would like me to sell your home, that would be the icing on the cake.
