Kauai Real Estate >Rising Vacation Home Sales

Vacation Home Sales on the Rise

Guess what, as the Real Estate market “over-all” rebounds, the Vacation/Second Home is coming back with more velocity than the market in general and this has and will of course effect Hawaii as a whole and specifically Kauai.

Lower prices from the recent housing “pull back” combined with historically low interest rates are bringing back the affluent vacation home buyer as well those not so affluent buyers who would just like to have an asset they can enjoy, rather than stocks, bonds or low money market returns.

It began in 2011 when according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), sales of vacation and investment properties rose with a combined market share to the highest level since 2005. NAR’s 2012 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers survey showed a significant increase of 7% of vacation home sales to 502,000. In 2011 this was somewhat of a stealth recovery, as not any media outlets were covering any part of the housing recovery as much as they are today.

Tourism as well has picked up on Kauai with the number of arrivals, length of stay and dollars spent per day all recovering to pre-recession levels. This recovery both increases the number of potential second homebuyers, who fall in love with the Island, as well as the opportunity for increasing income returns for the astute vacation rental home investor. This new increase in demand has depleted the inventory significantly on Kauai and especially in the “visitor destination areas” (VDA), where vacation rental properties are allowed (specifically Princeville & Poipu). NAR’s survey showed 91 % of vacation/second home buyers were planning to rent/lease their new purchase in the next year for at least some part of the season. On Kauai, of course, it is an age old tradition to vacation rent your second home for as much of the time as possible that you aren’t using the home for your on enjoyment.

Lending is different and somewhat more challenging for investment/second homes, and may get even tougher with the new “jumbo” loan mortgage guidelines put out by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which will go into effect in 2014. So now is very good time to consider that dream of vacation home ownership on Kauai.
