Analysis: The sale of condos in Waikoloa Beach Resort spiked sharply in Q1 over Q4 and was higher than any Quarter in 2016. Combine this with an inventory that is at its lowest level in over a year, and you have the early signs of a shifting market. A balanced market is considered to be at six months worth of inventory, and that is where we are now, so it will be interesting to watch the next few quarters to see if this is a pattern, or just an aberration.
