It is shocking to see how quickly the inventory of condos for sale at the Mauna Lani Resort is shrinking! There are four newer (post-2000) condominium projects at the Mauna Lani Resort on the north side between the Shops at Mauna Lani and the Fairmont Orchid hotel: Villages at Mauna Lani and Fair...
Back in September I got a call from a couple who were renting at Waikoloa Colony Villas. They were loving it and wanted to see condos for sale there.  We spent a productive day viewing the ample attractively priced options, and they left for home armed with information about how to submit an offe...
As I am still getting emails and calls from my July 2009 blog post about the first sweet deal in an REO (foreclosure) at Halii Kai at the Waikoloa Beach Resort, it is clearly time for an update. With this view from oceanfront condos at Halii Kai, it is only a matter of time till they sell, with w...
Over the weekend I was juggling four incoming offers on three different listings, a buyer client in town and multiple showings on other listings in both my North Kohala real estate and Kohala Coast condo markets.  Oddly enough, we had three "lowball" offers come in (two on the same property) beca...
A pineapple lamp base and a few tropical silk flower arrangements give your condo that "Hawai'ian style" Since many of the best buy opportunities in Kona condos and along the Kohala Coast are either short sales, REO (bank-owned) foreclosure properties or developer close-out, the unit will be com...
Villages at Mauna Kea near the beach for $2,500,000 after another price reduction Listed for $3.5 million at the beginning of 2009 in the doldrums of the Hawaii real estate market, the latest price reduction of $300,000 brings this 2BR/2.5BA 2,684 sq ft villa to a competitive price of $2,500,000...
Someone asked me just yesterday, "What do people DO here for Labor Day? Do they have BBQs and stuff?" Choice of indoor or outdoor dining tables, and a lanai built-in grill with an ocean and beach view at this Kolea condo I used to live on the Mainland too, and remember how that Labor Day cook-out...
The $200,000 price reduction (to $1,250,000 turnkey furnished) has stimulated lots of showings on this turnkey residential property with resort-quality construction and finishes and unobstructed ocean and Maui views (MLS 230134).  The 3,000 sq ft 3-bedroom home on over an acre is located just ab...
Although much of the activity in North Kohala (Hawi - Kapaau) in the past month was in the lower end of the market, the two residential sales were at the upper end.  Interestingly enough, each of these properties sold for $50,000 above their last listed price!  The Puakea Bay Ranch property had a...
Real estate sales in North Kohala (around the towns of Hawi and Kapaau) slowed briefly after the first-time buyer tax credit expired at the end of April.  However, looking at the month of August, the lower (under $450,000) end of the market is picking up again! In raw land, it seems everyone want...
