Kohala Ranch
The Kohala Coast is a spectacular area located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. The Big Island received its name as to differentiate it between the State of Hawaii and the Island of Hawaii. The Kohala Coast is split into two areas, North Kohala and South Kohala, with North Kohala covering the more rural northern end of the island, containing the small towns of Hawi and Kapa’au, as well as the Kohala Ranch communities on the south end.  

Halii Kai
South Kohala
covers the major, world class resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resorts’, the small town of Waikoloa Village, located 6 miles inland from the resorts, and Waimea, the beautiful town in the interior Waimea Valley. You can find market updates for many of these areas by visiting the Market Update Page on my website.

Halii KaiThe number of single-family homes sold in April 2019 in Kohala rose slightly over April last year, with 30 single-family homes selling in April this year, up from 28 homes selling in April 2018. The only actual sales volume increase to happen in Kohala was in South Kohala, where sales volume increased by just 2 homes (up from 21 homes to 23). The volume in North Kohala remained the same at 7 homes sold. The number of condos sold year over year in April also saw a small increase, rising from 35 units last year to 40 units this April.  

Unlike the monthly number, the year-to-date volume experienced a decrease in almost Mauna Lani Resort all market segments in 2019, with 93 single-family homes being sold overall this year in Kohala, down from 111 homes sold by this time in 2018.  The sales volume of single-family homes in North Kohala decreased significantly, from 30 homes sold in 2018, to 17 homes this year. South Kohala’s year-to-date volume also experienced a drop over last year, with 76 homes being sold this year, down from 81 homes in 2018. The number of condos sold year-to-date remained almost the same, with 115 units sold this, up from 114 units sold in 2018.

While the volume of single-family homes sold in April 2019 was up compared to April Kohala sunset2018 in both parts of Kohala, the change in median sales price varied from region to region. The median sale price in South Kohala had a small increase, from $600,000 in April 2018 to $650,000 in April this year, while in North Kohala, the median sales price in April 2019 fell a dramatic $280,425 to $1.062,000 from $1,342,425 in April 2018. This type of dramatic change in median price is quite common when dealing with such a low volume of sales. The condo market also saw their price move in the downward direction, with the median sales price falling slightly from $549,500 last year to $541,160 in April 2019.

As with the monthly numbers of the April median sales price, the year-to-date numbers Big Island Mapwere also somewhat mixed. North Kohala’s year-to-date median sales price increased an incredible 15%, from $889,000 in 2018 to $1,023,000 this year, again, this had more to do with the low number of sales in that area than a rapid increase in prices. The single-family home market in South Kohala saw a decrease, from $645,000 in 2018 to $628,000 this year, a change of 2.56%, while the median year-to-date sales price in the condo market experienced a small change in the other direction, rising 3.83%, from $497,000 in 2018 to $516,000 this year.

Analysis: As we head deeper into 2019, sales volume in all segments seems to be rebounding from the late 2018 slowdown. But the year-to-date median sales price seems to be moving in the other direction. So, with most of the markets on the Kohala Coast now in a Balanced Market, with a few, like Waikoloa Village, in a Sellers’ Market, it will be interesting to see how these conflicting stats of increasing sales and decreasing sales price will play out in the coming months.

As with the monthly number decrease, the year-to-date sales volume in Kohala is also Mauna Lani Resort experiencing a decrease in 2019, with 63 single-family homes being sold this year, down from 83 homes sold by this time in 2018.  This decrease was felt in all market segments, with the number of single-family homes in North Kohala decreasing by more than half, from 23 single-family homes sold last year, down to 10 homes this year. The South Kohala sales volume fell slightly, from 60 homes last year to 53 homes sold this year, while the number of condos sold year-to-date also saw a small decrease, falling from 79 units sold last year, to 75 units sold in 2019.

The median sale price in North Kohala was the only segment to see an increase, rising an astounding $215,000, from $825,000 in March 2018 to $1,040,000 in March this year.

As I have stated in the past, this type of dramatic change in median sales price is quite common when dealing with a low sales volume environment, like North Kohala. In South Kohala, the median sales price in March 2019 fell from $654,000 in March 2018 to $627,000 this year. The condo market also saw a decrease, with the March 2019 median sales price dropping to $440,000 from $495,000 in March 2018.

The year-to-date median sales price changes in the different areas and sectors mirror Big Island Mapthe changes in the monthly March 2019 numbers. The year-to-date median sales price in the condo market fell 5.05% from $5495,000 in 2018 to $470,000 this year, while the of price single-family homes in South Kohala also experienced a decrease, moving down 9.33%, from $654,000 in 2018 to $593,000 this year. Meanwhile, North Kohala saw a change in the other direction for its year-to-date median sales price, increasing 7.28% from $755,000 in 2018 to $810,000 this year.

Analysis: The March 2019 numbers continue the recent trend of lower sales volumes and falling median sale prices. This trend is expected to continue, at least in the short term, due to the usual seasonal slowdown. It remains to be seen if it will continue beyond the short term.

Mauna Lani Resort At the time of this writing (Apr 2nd), there were 17 single-family homes for sale, with 5 homes in escrow within the Mauna Lani Resort, along with 55 condos for sale, and 14 in escrow. Of the homes for sale, the highest priced one is listed at $8,500,000, and is located at 68-1026 Honokaope Pl in the 49 Black Sand community, while the most expensive condo on the market is listed at $3,695,000 and is Unit #7 at Na Hale at Paoua Beach.

At the other end of the spectrum, the lowest priced home on the market is 68-1122 N Kaniku Dr #347, located in Ka Milo at Mauna Lani Resort, and is listed at $1,499,000. On the condo side, the lowest priced one currently on the market is listed at $559,000. It is Unit #1201, in the Fairways at Mauna Lani.

Mauna Lani Resort When it comes to sales in the 1st Quarter, the number of condos sold was, as usual, quite higher than the number of homes sold. In the Q1 time frame of January 2019 through March 2019, there were just 3 single-family homes sold in the Mauna Lani Resort, while 14 condos were sold. The highest priced home to sell is located at 68-1025 N Kaniku Dr, #415 in The Villages of Mauna Lani, and it sold for $1,590,000, from a list price of $1,625,000.

Analysis: The volume of condos sold in Mauna Lani Resort has dropped Mauna Lani Resort significantly over the last two quarters, as have the sale of single-family homes. But if you include the single-family homes in escrow, it is more like they held steady. The inventory has also increased, but it is more of a seasonal increase, so I would say the inventory levels have also “held steady”. It remains to be seen if this is a market “pause”, or the beginning of something more.

The number of single-family homes sold in Kohala in February 2019 rose slightlyKohala waterfront over February 2018, with 21 homes selling in February 2018, up to 23 homes this year. That increase was not felt in all market segments, as the sales volume in North Kohala decreased from 7 homes sold in February 2018 to just one home this year, while the volume in South Kohala picked up the slack, rising from 14 homes last year to 22 homes this February. The number of condos sold year over year in February remained the same at 22 units both years.

Puako Beach
With February only being the second month of the year, the overall year-to-date volume is not yet a significant number, but it is still down over last year, with 39 single-family homes homes being sold so far in 2019, as opposed to 47 homes being sold by this time last year. As with the February monthly number, this decrease can be attributed to the drop in the North Kohala sales volume.


The North Kohala volume fell from 13 homes in 2018 to just 5 homes sold this year, while in South Kohala the year-to-date sales volume held its ground at 34 homes sold in both years. The number of condos sold year-to-date was up slightly, rising from 44 units sold last year, to 46 units sold in 2019.

As with sales volume numbers, the median sales price was also a mixed bag, rising in the South Kohala markets but falling in North Kohala. The median sale price of a Kohala sunsetsingle-family home in South Kohala rose from $681,000 in February 2018 to $712,000 in February of this year, while in North Kohala, the median sales price in February 2019 fell to $407,500 from $600,000 in February 2018. The condo market in South Kohala also experienced a slight price increase, with the February 2019 median sales price rising to $474,500 from $422,000 in February 2018.

Although the monthly median sales prices were up in the South Kohala markets but down in North Kohala, the year-to-date numbers were the opposite. The median year-to-date sales price in the South Kohala condo market fell a modest 4.53% from $497,000 in 2018 to $474,500 this year.

Big Island Map
South Kohala
single-family homes experienced the largest drop for its median sales price, decreasing 14.97% from $677,250 in 2018 to $577,850 this year. North Kohala was the lone bright spot with regards to year-to-date median sales price increases, rising an impressive 25.00%, from $600,000 in 2018 to $750,000 this year.


Analysis:
With the monthly and year-to-date sales volumes either falling or remaining the same in February over last year and the year-to-date median sales price falling in both South Kohala market segments, the Kohala Coast market seems to be in a state of flux. We will see over the next few months if the market advances over the last couple of years are beginning to slow, or not.

The number of condos sold year-to-date was the one segment with an increase in sales volume, rising from 22 units sold last year, to 23 units sold in 2019.

Along with the decreases in sales volume of single-family homes in January 2018 over Waikoloa Beach ResortJanuary 2019 in both North and South Kohala, also came reductions in median sales prices in both regions. The median sale price in South Kohala fell from $677,250 in January 2018 to $535,000 in January of this year, while in North Kohala, the median sales price in January 2019 fell to $810,000 from $986,000 in January 2018.

Analysis:
The sales volume of single-family homes dropped significantly on the Kohala Coast in January 2019 compared to the last six months of 2018. This is especially concerning since January is typically one of the stronger months for sales. We did not see the same drop in sales volume in the condo market, so it is possible the drop was just a monthly aberration.
