The Kailua Kona real estate winter season has officially arrived! Our lovely town is full of visitors from all over the world out enjoying the sun and sea.
Historically, December through February are our busiest real estate months, and this year has already been rocking and rolling!
New Year’s Eve I received an email from a Buyer interested in a Holualoa property. After coming into my office and discussing their wants and needs, the luxury condo route seemed like a better fit. We spent some time in the Mauna Lani area, and found them the perfect unit in the Golf Villas at Mauna Lani! We are currently in escrow, with an early March close date.
This past Friday morning, a buyer called in to view my listing on Mahilani Drive. I showed the home, and they expressed interest. The couple also had interest in the homes offered in Pualani Estates. So off we went to view that development They fell in love instantly, and wanted to make an offer straight away. Wanting to make sure these buyers were well informed and had all the information they needed to make a strong offer, I suggested we take a lunch break, then adjourn to my office for a look at the comparables and current market pricing. We did all of this, and within a few hours submitted an offer to the developer. We came to terms the next day!
Last, but certainly not least….my Mahilani Drive listing, which has had tremendous interest since the day we hit the market, we put into escrow yesterday! My Sellers are over the moon, and the soon to be owners are getting a wonderful home with fantastic views & potential!
If you are interested in seeing what our market is currently offering, I’ve recently implemented a property search to my blog! You are now able to access any property for sale on the Big Island! You can search by district, size, price, etc, etc.
Remember, well priced properties aren’t staying on the market for long. Many times, we are seeing multiple buyers submitting offers on the same property. The market in Kona has changed dramatically, if you like a property, make your move now! If the property is priced right, it won’t be available for long.
Enjoy your property searching, and please contact me with any questions you may have!
