Maui Real Estate is achieving a healthier balance and recovering from our 2008-2010 downturn. As our high season gets into full gear we are seeing more inventory coming on the market particularly in the condo category.  New developments are in motion as developers envision an opportunity. Cautious optimism is in the air.

Current absorption rate (does not include pending sales -only active listings). There are currently approx. 9.1 months of inventory left in single family homes, 7.2 months left in condos. Overpriced listings (for it’s category) continue to stay on the market while well priced listings (for their category) in good condition are being picked up by savvy buyers. Maui real estate market is very localized and specific. You must have a knowledgeable realtor who can interpret the data in order to have a more accurate perspective. For instance, many factors need to be taken into account in the vastly different economics of one condominium complex relative to another. Some great condo units in vacation pools get rarely shown to buyers because they are consistently booked for vacationers, and thus could possibly remain on the market not because of lack of demand but rather due to the lack of opportunity to view the unit.

Also the pool of Maui properties is much smaller than metropolitan areas. Therefore a few high sales or low sales will have a greater effect on the overall statistics without necessarily indicating a big market swing one way or another. Again, a smart and informed realtor will help you navigate the nuances of this market.

Email me for vacant land information. I do not include much vacant land in this report as the numbers can be very misleading. We are dealing with a small unit of numbers that  can easily skew the true picture. The details of land are very specific to value. The condition and cost of grading the site, access to water or water meter, potential of view being blocked, paved road, dirt road, electricity, infrastructure, easements, etc,.. etc. can have dramatic influences on price.

Please call and email us if you would like to receive a complimentary market analysis in your home/neighborhood or condo complex of interest on Maui. We would be happy to be of service. Please subscribe to this blog as we update regularly with valuable information regarding Maui Real Estate.
