REOs, shortsales, and sellers aware of the prices that today’s buyers demand are bringing down prices at Waikoloa Village into the $300,000 range.
Sales at Waikoloa Village averaged at $314,725 last month, bringing figures back in line with the average in the first quarter of 2010, but down quite a bit from March’s average of $400,000. At only four sales, the number of closings was also down slightly from previous months’ average of 5 sales per month.
This Waikoloa Village home was sold even before coming onto the market.
Among April’s four sales were one REO, one short sale, and two non-distressed properties. One of the two non-distressed properties, however, had a huge $100,000 price reductionâ€”from $450,000 down to $350,000â€”just before going into escrow.
There are now 23 homes in escrow in the village and only three of these homes have an asking price over $400,000. We can therefore expect that the next four or five months will continue to see average sales prices in the $300,000 range.
