Another luxury Kolea condo for sale has taken a price reduction to short sale territory.  Today's price reduction on Kolea 3E from $1,395,000 to $1,250,00 comes iwth the caveat that this is now a short sale subject to bank approval...and a bargain for some lucky and patient buyer! Pocket doors op...
This is a dog's story, but it is also a story of how rural communities thrive in Hawai'i. I start my day with an hour or two of work at my desk, since 5 am Hawaii time is already 11 am on the East Coast where some of my short sale negotiators are getting ready for lunch.  But if I haven't looked ...
I missed blogging yesterday for an even better reason than "the dog ate my homework": we had a second power outage for the day affecting my home in Kapaau, North Kohala, for three hours beginning around 7pm.  The irony is that off-grid homes did not notice ...so one of my sellers was emailing me ...
A new listing released today at Mauna Lani Terrace looks priced to sell at $1,695,000.  I say it is "priced to sell" because (1) it is a coveted third floor "penthouse", as were all three of the Mauna Lani Terrace condos sold so far in 2011, and (2) it is priced very close to where the two bedroo...
Our only Big Island movie theaters are in the "big cities" of Kailua Kona and Hilo, but the Kohala Coast resorts have the distinction of hosting the annual Big Island Film Festival, which comes to a close this evening.  In its earlier years it took place at the Waikoloa Beach Resort hotels and Qu...
Although usually those of us active in the Kohala Coast Real Estate Market, the gold coast of Hawai'i's Big Island, figure we can breathe again after Easter, this May has seen a hot start!  Luxury condos at Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resort are all getting multiple offers. Just to r...
Thank goodness for a new listing at Villages at Mauna Lani!  When I saw the new listing, I felt like saying "and baby makes three!"  Until Wednesday of this week, the only two choices were not ones that would work for most Villages buyers, and certainly not for the buyer I was scheduling appointm...
Despite the price war at the upscale Maliu Ridge subdivision near Hawi in North Kohala, the home that is showing under contract today is the first to sell since January! It will be interesting to see what the final sold price is on this 2,430 sq ft home with big ocean views and all furniture incl...
An old show tune kept running through my mind as our land-only North Kohala real estate broker caravan wandered from Makapala to Hawi recently.  And if I tell you the tune, you might wonder: What does North Kohala at the tip of the Island of Hawai'i have in common with Camelot?   The rain must ne...
Ka Milo at Mauna Lani resort took the bold step of beginning construction on their next phase, and now they are offering a furniture credit to all buyers of new construction homes. The smallest Honua A single-level paired home floorplan comes with a $25,000 credit and the larger free standing hom...
