A Few Words From One of the Sellers of Hokulani #722, Kelly McMurray:I chose to list my Honua Kai unit with Jeremy Stice and Hawaii Life because of their effective and consistent marketing presence at the resort. After consulting with Jeremy it was clear that he was very knowledgeable and passionate about Honua Kai. Through his efforts, he brought us two cash offers and was able to use his negotiation skills to get us top dollar, strong terms, and a short closing. He has strong communication skills and made the selling process a good experience for me. I would certainly recommend Jeremy and Hawaii Life to list and sell your Honua Kai condo.
Prices Are Rising Steadily & Quickly at Honua Kai
I will be writing a more detailed post about the recent price appreciation on the two bedroom units at Honua Kai in the near future, but will include just a few rudimentary things here. Hokulani #722 was previously sold by the developers to my clients during the “fire sales” in 2011 for $550,000. I detailed the significant price appreciation of the one bedroom units in the summer of last year.
Prices/sq.ft. at Honua Kai have been on the rise since 2012 for all property types: studios, one bedrooms, two bedrooms, and three bedrooms, with the exception in 2013 where two bedroom prices dropped by about $25 per sq.ft. but then rebounded nicely in 2014 by jumping about $100/sq.ft.
The developer was able to sell much of their inventory very quickly from 2011-2013 with another round of cuts in 2012. In hindsight, they could have benefited by a more gradual price reduction strategy, but real estate prices on Maui did bottom out at this point and the developer definitely needed to increase liquidity. The resale market prices really started to take off in early 2013, this was around the time when I helped another client seller sell their 2 bedroom unit for a $135,000 short term profit.
