      The article is referring to island-wide figures, not North Kona.

      Robert – the Hawaii Information Service statistics cited in the above article clearly refer to island-wide sales, not just those of North Kona.

    Denise, my stats were just for North Kona but even looking at the entire island, condo median price is up only 28.28%, not 46%.
