    West Hawaii Association Realtor Member, Gretchen Osgood states, “Kona sales are still running strong! Houses and condos switched places for the lead in April, houses closed 46 overall and condos closed 51, land sales held steady at 10. Pending sales are also still holding strong with houses at 112 and condos at 90, very similar to last month so May should also have strong closings.

    Real Estate sales for January 2018 were slightly down from 2017 and may reflect the uncertainty the tax reform bill created with buyers and may also reflect the low inventory available for sale. January 2018 statistics can be viewed here

    Why Should I Take Action? 

    Pending tax reform plans are a threat to tax benefits of owning a home for 95% of American families. Incentivizing home buyers with tax benefits has a positive effect on families, communities, and the economy. Taking action would protect homeowners, especially middle-class ones.

    The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) needs your help to send 

    messages to Members of Congress urging them to support a  comprehensive

    reauthorization of the NFIP.

    Reauthorization will make a number of critical improvements to the NFIP including 

    increased funds for mitigation activities, caps on overall premium increases, 

    improved claim and mapping processes, as well as removing hurdles for 

    more private market participation in the flood insurance market.

    Reauthorization of the NFIP will help over 5 million homeowners in 22,000 

    communities around the country, so it is critical Congress acts now.

    If Congress fails to take action to reauthorize the NFIP, it will expire by September

    30, 2017.
