Kauai Residential Real Estate Market Year End Review 2023

2023 was the year of a Kauai housing market crash that never happened and 2024 looks like the year that Buyers will be able to jump back into the market as interest rates soften. This is the year-end review to see how the Kauai housing market did in 2023 compared to 2022 and these two years, just couldn’t be more different. 2022 was a bull market which turned into a bear market when interest rates sharply turned upwards in the middle of the year. 2023 has been a solid year of interest rates rising and yet, prices remain high.

Sold Price vs. List Price

Despite the rise in interest rates Sellers on Kauai did not do a lot of price reductions and got 93.1% of their Sold Price to their Original List Price meaning before any price reductions were done. In 2022 it was 97.5%. The average days on market were up from 48 last year to 81 in 2023. If the home was priced correctly, Kauai home sellers made it through 2023 just fine.
