As an affluent buyer you are preparing for a long, uncertain winter as COVID numbers continue to rise — the luxury real estate boom is almost solely driven by the need for an all-in-one home base with a “sanctuary” feel. Hawaii Island has low number reporting some of the lowest in our nation.
The bottom line there is great momentum for affluent customers relocating to paradise for the long wait in the islands or some are making decisive permanent moves until the unknown is known.
RELOCATIONS TO TROPICAL AND RESORT MARKETS
Without the obligation of a commute, and without easy travel, most affluent clients are looking for homes that also feel like a vacation getaway.
