-For the Kona Residential stats on the Big Island of Hawai’i the Median Price moving in an upward trend standing at $553,500. It is likely the lack of affordable inventory under $500.000 and corresponding increase in sales in the higher price ranges will continue to move the price higher. There are only 23 homes listed under $500,000. The number sold in the last 12 months is higher than the previous 12 months. This along with 8% increase in Average Price has resulted in Sales Volume being $19.0M higher.
–For a complete PDF copy please email me. On Page 2 note the Pie Chart clearly illustrates the shrinkage in sales numbers in the under $500,000 price range. This is being replaced by an increase in sales in the higher price ranges. In this report we see nice increases over last year in the over $900,000 price levels. This seems to be a very positive recent trend that likely marks a new phase in this cycles recovery. In the over $4.0M price range we see nearly a doubling of sales in the 12 month period.
-The Percentage of MLS listings that are either REO or Short Sales island wide continues its gradual declining trend. The Island wide average now stands at 10%, the lowest it has been since declining from the peak levels in 2012 Reports. In 2012 the percentage was 40% or more. The Island wide REO count for the four lenders tracked has leveled off in the past 6 months has also is on a downward trend over the past 12 months.
-The Condo year over year data is following a trend similar to what we currently see in Residential data. Inventory is quite high, up 38% from a year ago. Great shopping conditions for Buyers.

-Note on Page 7 Kona Residential Price chart since 1972 has been updated with the new 2015 data. A trend line has been added. The Average Residential Price change for 2015 was +4.0%. This price increase is representative of homes in Kona priced below $700,000. This is quite representative of the actual increase in Value for homes in that price range. Many of the sales are resales of the same property and therefore better represent the change in Value.
-Note on Pages 8 of the, “Kona vs West Coast Inventory and Sale Price Trends,” are the most useful future trend indicators. These Charts maybe very useful tools in forecasting the future Price trends in Kona. The San Diego sale price data and appreciation rate data seem to be a very reliable leading indicator for our Kona price trend. It appears that the Kona price trend lags San Diego by about a year. San Diego year over year prices to showing an increasing trend in April last year.
