Focus: Puako

Updated: Aug 17, 2021

You probably heard me talking about Puako before. It's no wonder - I live, breathe, and work in Puako. Puako IS my Hawaii Life. As a real estate agent focusing on Puako, I often get questions from my clients on how solid property values are here and what makes them an excellent financial investment. Of course, the factors that influence the value are always supply, demand and uniqueness. Puako meets all of these standards.

Puako is unique, being the only street along the South Kohala Coast, that is NOT in a resort, which means no CC&R's & HOA fees! It is a cool little neighborhood, where you get to know your neighbors and find new friends. It truly exudes a "sense of place and belonging", a coming home for those who discover Puako.

The demand is much greater than the supply, it is rare to find a property on the market for any appreciable length of time, so there is an urgency factor built in! Nobody knows how the prices will behave in the future, but we do know that right now, we have the best market in decades, and sellers are undoubtedly benefiting from it.

Below I include some data that illustrates the latest selling trends in Puako and will give you an idea of where the market stands. If you would like more detailed information or are interested in what your property might be worth, contact me.
