Real Estate Listing Inventory Spikes After Months of Descent

Typically the first quarter of each new year has the fewest number of home sales when compared to the remaining quarters. As it can take approximately 45 to 60 days for a property to transfer ownership, the statistics that show up in the first quarter are actually an indication of the previous month’s activity. There are many factors that could go into deciphering this change, but the most obvious seems to be the holidays in the last quarter of every year. As the most celebrated holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas could cause buyer and seller motivation to decrease, as many other obligations take precedence.

Flood Zone Change Could Mean 80 Percent Insurance Increase

February 1, 2010 was the deadline for Hawaii counties to submit the necessary paperwork and documentation to be reaccredited under the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s levee certification.

According to the State of Hawaii Flood Insurance Program, February 1, 2010 was the end of the two-year Provisionally Accredited Levee (PAL) period, which FEMA granted to each county for certification of levees. Counties either failing to submit necessary paperwork or earn reaccredidation may result in having flood zone changes from moderate-to-low risk flood zone to a high-risk flood zone, ultimately, raising flood insurance premiums and policies.

Buyers Up, Rates Down as Median Home Prices Continue to Descend

The median price for island homes continues its descent, finding its way towards trough stability and hopefully inelasticity in the wake of government-injected life into the housing market.

The month of December brought the median price for single-family homes to $550,000 and condominiums to $300,000. A low from previous months, respectively, however, relative when considering the island-wide sales data. The Ewa Plain-Kapolei area had the most sales this month and year-to-date. It also had the lowest median sales price for the month of December and the second lowest year-to-date, behind the Makaha-Nanakuli area.

What’s Your Plan for 2010?

Keeping Resolutions on Track

Now that you are at least a week into your New Year’s resolutions, it is time to access and evaluate that simple question put forth so famously by Dr. Phil, “How’s that working for ya?”  Resolutions fail for one basic reason – lack of action. In most cases, that missing component is what crumples your dreams and goals for the new year. So, if your resolutions have already gone by the wayside, imagine, “It’s a Wonderful Life” and allow yourself a second chance on making them happen. Following these three steps can get you back on the plan and move you to action.
