Mauna Lani Point
The Kohala Coast is a spectacular area located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. The Big Island got its name 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.

Mauna Lani Resort
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.

The number of single-family homes sold in August 2019 in Kohala increased slightly Colony Villasover last August, with 36 homes selling in August this year, up from 34 homes selling in August 2018. This boost came from the increase in sales volume in North Kohala, with the volume in North Kohala rising moderately from 2 homes sold in August 2018 to 7 homes this year, while South Kohala’s August 2019 number fell to 29 single-family homes from 32 homes last August. The number of condos sold in August 2019 also experienced a drop, with sales volume falling from the 2018 number, down from 37 units last August to 23 units this year.    

Although the numbers were mixed, the year to date volume in 2019 is down in all Mauna Lani Resort market segments. There were 232 single-family homes sold this year in Kohala, down from 248 homes being sold by this time in 2018.  This decrease was felt in both parts of Kohala with the number of single-family homes sold in North Kohala decreasing slightly, (from 48 homes in 2018 to 45 homes this year) while the sales volume in South Kohala had an even larger decrease (from 200 single-family homes sold last year to 187 homes this year).

That large decrease in sales volume was felt in both parts of Kohala, but more so in South Kohala.

North Kohala saw 7 homes sold in June 2019, down slightly from the 9 homes sold in June 2018, but South Kohala fell substantially from 29 homes sold in June 2018 to 17 Kohala Waterfronthomes this June. The number of condos sold in June 2019 also fell year over year, with 24 units being sold this June, down slightly from 28 units in June 2018.

This substantial drop in sales volume for June helped to contribute to the drop in the year-to-date sales volume in 2019, which is well off the 2018 numbers. There have been 157 single-family homes sold so far this year, a big drop from the 183 homes that sold by this time in 2018.  

Mauna Lani Resort Both parts of Kohala have felt this year-to-date volume decrease, with North Kohala seeing 31 homes sold in 2019, down from the 42 homes sold in 2018. In South Kohala the sales volume has decreased by 15 homes, with 126 homes selling this year, down from the 141 homes sold last year, and the number of condos sold year-to-date also saw a small decrease, with 169 units selling this year, down from 171 units sold in 2018.

Along with the drop in sales volume of single-family homes in June 2019 over June Spencer Beach2018 in Kohala, the fall in median sales price also happened in most markets. The median sale price in the South Kohala and condo markets both fell, with South Kohala falling from $557,000 in June 2018 to $540,000 in June of this year, while the condo market fell from $650,000 in June 2018 to $478,750 in June of this year. The only market to see an increase in the median sales price was North Kohala, where the median sales price in June 2019 increased to $691,945 from $657,750 in June 2018.

Big Island StatsAs with the decrease in the monthly median sales price for homes in Kohala, all the markets year-to-date median sales price numbers reflected their monthly numbers. The median year-to-date sales price in North Kohala saw the only increase, rising 24%, from $825,000 in 2018 to $1,023,000 this year; this kind of dramatic change can sometimes be expected when you have an area with such a low sales volume.


Meanwhile, South Kohala experienced a less dramatic change, with its median sales price decreasing a mere 1.17% from $600,000 in 2018 to $593,000 this year, while the condo market had a similar decrease, falling 1.71%, from $525,000 in 2018 to $516,000 this year.

Analysis: Although the monthly sales volume in Kohala as been higher in some months over their 2018 counterparts, the overall year-to-date number is down quite a bit from the 2018 numbers. The same could be said for the median sales price numbers, as they were mixed from month-to-month, but down overall for the year. This may have been caused by a combination of 2017 being a really good year and a nationwide slowdown in the real estate market. The question is, how long will the slowdown continue.

Of the homes for sale in the Waikoloa Beach Resort, the highest priced one is a waterfront home, newly listed at $15,950,000, located at 69-0008 Naukapa Place in the Naukapa community.


The least expensive home on the market is located at 69-9229 Anaole St, in Waikoloa Beach Resort’s newest development, Ainamalu at Waikoloa Beach. It is listed at $2,600,000. In the condo market, the highest price condo currently available is listed at The Shores at Waikoloa$1,390,000 and is Unit #12A in Kolea Condo Villas. While at the other end of the spectrum, the lowest priced condo currently on the market is listed at $360,000 and is Unit #137 in The Shores at Waikoloa Beach Resort.

Analysis: After a pretty steady rate of condo sales throughout 2018, Q2 of 2019 experienced over a 50% surge in condo sales in the Waikoloa Beach Resort. This led to a small decrease in available condo inventory, but not to the point of causing an inventory shortage. With the sales rate of single-family homes remaining constant, it remains to be seen if this surge in condo sales will continue.  .
