Aloha & Welcome!

I hope this email finds you and your loved ones well!

I apologize for the delay in getting this month's newsletter to you - I've been darned busy!

In here you will find statistics on local home sales and other real estate news and resources. The Big Island real estate market remains highly competitive with low inventory and high demand. Desirable homes are often under contract in a matter of days and there's still a lot of cash in the market. In comparison to past months however, there's emerging debate over where the real estate market is headed.

In addition to real estate information, I share a few stunning paintings by beloved local artist Mary Spears. I'm wrapping up my training in the Master Gardener program, so if you have gardening questions or pest problems, get in touch. I may not have the answer myself, but luckily I know folks who are smarter than me. Finally, I'm growing herb and vegetable starter plants - basil, brussels sprouts, chives, dill, oregano, parsley, potatoes, rosemary, tarragon, thyme and tomatoes. If you want a few, drop me a note.

If you know someone who might want to receive this newsletter, forward this email to them and they can subscribe. If you'd rather not receive this monthly newsletter please unsubscribe below.

Sending Aloha your way ~

  • Existing Home Sales Retract 2.4% in April 2002. Existing-home sales fell for the third straight month in April 2022, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.61 million. Sales were down 2.4% from the prior month and 5.9% from one year ago. With slower demand, the inventory of unsold existing homes climbed to 1.03 million by the end of April, or the equivalent of 2.2 months of the monthly sales pace.
