The reintroduction of a luxury resort on Kauai’s north shore is expected to have a profound impact on the local economy and the high-end real estate market. An influx of resort guests who are capable of spending upwards of $550.00 per night on a hotel room will certainly trickle out to other sectors of the local economy. This is good news for local residents, realtors and property sellers alike all of whom are dependent upon a healthy visitor industry.
In a real estate market with a very limited high-end inventory, the best values are likely to be purchased in the months ahead. For buyers who have been “watching” the market to reach its bottom, now may well be the time to step up and make that offer. For those who are soon to discover Kauai’s North Shore of the first time are sure to be enchanted by all who have come before.
