Home Prices Up Again!

Now for seven successive months we have watched home prices rise across America. The Standard and Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index released Tuesday rose 0.3% from November to December. Only five of the 20 cities in the index showed declines from November to December. Los Angeles and Phoenix posted the largest increases. In Denver, prices rose for the 10th month in a row while San Francisco saw its eight monthly-gain. More listings are receiving multiple offers above the asking price.

People are realizing the bottom is creeping away.

When to buy Maui real estate? Looks like the time is now!

In other news, the state Department of Business Economic Development and Tourism says it continues to expect a gradual recovery in Hawaii's economy beginning this year. Total visitor days and expenditures are projected to increase this year by 2.1% and 2.3%, respectively.
