Early Snowbirds Getting the Best Deals

Snowbirds have been taking advantage of rising home and condo prices by arriving early and snatching up prime properties on the Kohala Coast.  They’ve been hearing the ongoing positive news: Big Island vacation home & condo sales have been steadily rising for more than a year, and all signs point to this trend continuing.  They know that TODAY is the best day to purchase real estate along the Kona-Kohala Coast.  

In a recent interview with West Hawaii Today, Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi said “…Hawaii County real estate sales are experiencing the strongest recovery in the state, with median sale prices up 18 percent,” That report also showed that Hawaii County is expected to add 930 construction jobs over the next decade, compared to 810 in Maui County, and 350 in Kauai County.  All of these numbers and projections show a growing confidence in Hawaii Island’s economic recovery.”

Take this information heart, and snatch up that Hawaiian vacation property you’ve been thinking about – now -- before the prices climb higher!  Emily Gail, Realtor at Kohala Estate Realty, just sold a beautiful home on Lua Kula Place for $745,000.
