Real Estate Booming On Big Island



December 14, 2015




By IVY ASHE Hawaii Tribune-Herald





As far as real estate is concerned, one thing has been made clear in 2015: the Big Island is the place to be.

Home sales are on the rise countywide, with buyers coming from around the state, the mainland, and countries as far-flung as Switzerland — to say nothing of the increase in local homeowners.

Realtor Nancy Cabral, owner of Day-Lum Properties, called 2015 “the best year since the crash of 2008.”

“It’s been recovering for a long time,” she said of the island’s market.

Through the end of last month, home sales for the entire island have increased slightly more than 7 percent over 2014’s numbers, according to data collected by Hawaii Information Services.
