Mauna Kea Resort October Market Update: 2021 Q1-Q3 Kohala Coast Statistics and Insight Enclosed

Three quarters down, one to go. Although we were confronted by many uncertainties through the first 8 months of 2021, one thing is for certain; the Kohala Coast market is sustaining remarkable levels of demand driven by a scarcity of inventory and a newfound sense of urgency from Buyers eager to reserve their own piece of this Big Island oasis.

Hawaii is now reporting its lowest number of COVID cases in recent weeks. Lt. Gov. Josh Green believes the state could begin lowering COVID-19 restrictions in about two weeks. Green said that based on diminishing infection rates, the state could begin to return to normal very soon. As the holiday season, historically a massive driver of the state’s economy, approaches, Green emphasized a need to return to “normal” soon. Green recently said Gov. David Ige should reverse a statement he made earlier this year discouraging travelers from visiting Hawaii and signal to overseas tourists that the state is safe again.

The strong 2021 Q1-Q3 outputs below elucidate the remarkable levels of demand in our market. We do not foresee a slowdown in demand, however, Mauna Kea Realty’s inventory of available properties within Mauna Kea Resort and along the Kona-Kohala Coast is very low. This is an opportune time for owners who may be considering selling to take advantage of a strong and bullish market that is yielding record sales prices.
