Poipu Beach Real Estate- From what I’m experiencing, and from what my fellow agents and title companies tell me, we are selling real estate.  The last part of the year was a bit quiet but January just kept picking up speed and there’s not sign of slowing down for February.
I’m excited to announce that I am listing a 3 Bedroom 3 Bath Pili Mai unit in building 10 which is one of only 5 buildings out of the 15 in this complex that is on the golf course.  This is a single story Moana floor plan with central AC, well appointed interior design and has been in an established rental program.  Currently this is the only unit for sale in this complex.  List price is $995,000.  In this post I have a video walk through, contact me for more information.

Airbnb Testing Restricting Bookings For 25 and Under
In Canada, Airbnb is testing a program that prevents users under the age of 25 from booking a rental.  There are some exceptions if the users have an established record of positive reviews.
Several incidents have prompted this.  One being a shooting at a Toronto Airbnb where three people were killed.   In October five people were killed at a party that was being held at an Airbnb rental.
Some other changes that Airbnb announced was that they are going to invest $150m into safety initiatives, which includes a 24-hour hotlines for upset neighbors and the provision of noise detectors that can alert hosts if there is a disturbance.
The company also said it would tie staff bonuses to progress on safety. In December, Airbnb pledged to verify all of its properties around the world — of which there are approximately 7m — to check listings are accurate. It said it would use a mixture of algorithmic systems and guest feedback, as well as in-person or virtual walk-throughs. However, the company said on Tuesday the audit had yet to begin as details were still being finalized.

Amazon Coming To Hawaii?
The buzz on the street is that Amazon is looking for industrial space on Oahu.  They also recently changed their business registration in Hawaii for an entity that lets local businesses sell wares and services on the e-commerce giant’s online platform.

Many of the services that Amazon has such as housecleaning, repair services, computer support etc. are not available here.  But that might all change if they establish a base here.
A team from Amazon was on Oahu last month touring potential warehouse sites.  They currently make daily flights to Hawaii and they have their own package receiving/distribution at Honolulu International Airport.
