Why it May Be the Right Time to Buy a Vacation Home on Kauai

“The clouds hanging over upscale vacation-home markets are starting to lift.” This is according to an article in the Wall Street Journal.

The article went on to say that, “While prices are still falling in most regions, the luxury segment is picking up, and brokers are reporting more inquiries than they have had in years.” Here on Kauai, we have one of the most beautiful vacation destinations, attracting visitors from around the world.

The vacation homes here are a definite draw to those searching for a second home. The really great thing too is that many homes in a designated VDA (visitor destination area) have been approved to be used as a short term vacation rental. This is great to off-set the cost of ownership while still having the freedom to book your stay in your own house or condo for as long as you want.

This 3 bed/2 bath home (MLS# 245721), listed at $920,000 in Poipu, Kauai, has approximately 1,846 sq. ft. of living space and qualifies as a vacation rental

Poipu, in the southern part of Kauai, is one area that gets a lot of attention from those looking for a vacation home. Home prices have fallen quite a bit since the peak five years ago. The opportunity to acquire a beautiful vacation home here on Kauai is now becoming a reality for many.

    Randy, another great article and two extremely great properties in Kauai’s most beautiful areas. Yes, I agree with the article that there are sauve buyers out there that are aware that these incredible deals won’t be around for long and are moving on these opportunities. Thanks for sharing these homes with us. Lucy
