Are you interested in Hamakua Coast properties in the 5-10 acre range? If so, you’re in luck, as there are several excellent opportunities currently available.
A few weeks ago I wrote about the popularity of Hamakua Coast properties in the 15-30 acre range. I mentioned I’m seeing a lot more calls and activity in regards to both small and large acreage properties along the Hamakua Coast. (For reference, when I say Hamakua Coast I’m referring to anywhere from the Wailuku River just north of Hilo to Waipio Valley.)
That activity is continuing particularly for properties in the 5-10 acre range hit. Properties of this size hit the sweet spot with a lot of Hawaii homebuyers for a variety of reasons.
For my Pepeekeo client, I was able to get the highest sales price in the district for a property that size
Some folks are farmers looking to grow their agricultural operations (as was the case with a recent sale in Pepeekeo). Other property buyers are looking to retire to Hawaii and are interested in having a gentleman’s farm. Others still prefer the relaxed bucolic lifestyle offered in Hamakua and enjoy the added privacy provided by having acreage.
In 2014, there were 33 sales of properties in the 5-10 acre range along the Hamakua Coast ranging from just north of the Wailuku River in Hilo to Waipio Valley. These properties varied in price from a low of $110,000 to a high of $1,125,000.
