One of our friends from Thailand is currently visiting the United States. He and his wife began their American journey in Hawaii. He sent lovely and detailed messages describing the beauty of the island and the historical sites related to World War II at Pearl Harbor as well as the local culture. He mentioned many beautiful homes that he has visited, which made me think about what it might be like to live there. He visited each of the main islands, including Kauai, which is the fourth largest.
I wonder what the Kauai real estate market is like these days. I know that the real estate market on the mainland remains gripped in one of the deepest market down-turns in the nation’s history. I would imagine that if the real estate market in Hawaii has suffered similarly, there may be some real bargains available for single family homes and condominiums. A quick review of available listings shows that there are properties to fit almost any price range, although many of the listings reflect prices that are probably out of reach of most Americans.
