Kauai Real Estate Update 

I knew that our real estate activity was trending higher than last year and I did some research and was pleasantly surprised at what I found; In looking at the total number of sales for the entire island Year To Date there were 276 in 2016.  For 2017:  305!

The lower priced properties continue to lead with lower days on market, multiple offers and closer to (or above) list verses sales price. Those properties are important as they are the drivers for the rest of the market.

Four Arrested At Coco Palms

Last week I reported on the 25 people that are living at the Coco Palms and this week the 4 people that are claiming ownership (by right of a royal patent) have been arrested and removed from the property.  Police received a complaint about 7:40 a.m. Tuesday regarding individuals who were reportedly blocking access to the entrance of the Coco Palms.

Contractors hired by the property owner were reportedly attempting to access the property to remove an illegal wooden structure that was erected on the property without the owner’s permission.

Officers arrived at the scene and located four individuals blocking access to the property.

Officers notified the individuals of the violation, and they refused to vacate the premises. The violators were arrested. All were booked at the Lihue police station and have since been released after posting bail.
