Kauai Real Estate, Kauai Median Price Hits New High, "Shaka" Roundabout, Kauai Leads In Hotel Occupancy

Kauai Real Estate Update-  Last week our Kauai Median Home Price hit a new high at $1,165,000.  I’m seeing Buyer activity picking up and I believe that will get even stronger in the second home market (resort areas) as we head into next year.  The sold prices and days on market are jumpy and not following regular trends as Buyers and Sellers work towards our new normal.  The standoff seems to have abated somewhat as Buyers realize that this is not the crash of 2008 and Sellers adjust to a lower paced increase in prices.

Best Roundabout!
How cool is this?  Being greeted with a “Shaka” at the gateway to Poipu, Omao, Lawai and Koloa??  We looked a little funny when I had my hubby drive as I shot this video from the backseat of my car but I really wanted to get the a live action video of the improved roundabout at the intersection of Koloa Road and the Ala Kalanikaumaka bypass road ( Ala Kalanikaumaka is the street that the Shops at Kukui’ula are on ). 
On the side walls it has the four areas that the roundabout exits.  I LOVE this!!
