Do you like to sit in the sauna on a cold night?

460 Hoolawa Rd. Haiku Maui oceanfront offering listed for $1,395,000
Million Dollar Views:  This beautiful oceanfront lot just got an updated video tour on Vimeo so I want to show it off.

Haiku Maui Hawaii off-grid building site with views!   FOR SALE
Haiku Maui - Burns Road is accessed from the lower end of Kaupakalua Road, and much of this area is ranch land and wide open country.  It's a little out-of-the-way spot that many Maui people don't even know about.  This new gated neighborhood only has a few building lots so you won't have many neighbors.

Go Off-Grid - What a sweet spot to build your off the grid homestead on Maui.  Take a look at the views and the surrounding countryside here at 549 Burns Road, Haiku Maui.

for sale: What is a Non-Warrantable Condo? And why you should care….. - 08/20/18 07:33 PM
 This article is copied from an email newsletter by Alan Van Zee of Hawaii Mortgage Company.  If you're looking for a lender in Hawaii, send them an email or call.
What is a Non-Warrantable Condo? And why you should care…..
This designation is important to anyone who is interested in buying, selling, or refinancing a condo.  In short, almost half of the people out there should pay notice.  If a condo project is determined to be non-warrantable, it could lead to difficulties in obtaining financing.
 
Let me first tackle where the term non-warrantable comes from.  When a lender sells a loan to institutions such … (7 comments)

for sale: Can I sell my Maui vacation condo in 15 days? - 08/20/18 01:19 AM
"I want to sell my Maui condo in 15 days - do you want to list it?"
That's what the seller said when he contacted me 14 days ago.  This is a condo that was just bought earlier this year, in a great oceanfront location in Kihei Maui - Luana Kai Resort.  It should be easy to sell fast, right? 
In this case yes it could be sold fast...  a prime Maui beachfront unit in a beautiful location. Solid short-term rental bookings with good rental income. Motivated seller.  Let's do it!
 
OK, what's it going to take to get this condo sold?

for sale: Maui real estate market random stats for July 25 2018 - 07/25/18 05:58 PM
As I'm updating some links on my eastmaui.com website today I'm noticing the active and pending listings in the different parts of Maui, Hawaii.  A few random statistics caught my eye and it's interesting to see that the oceanfront segment of the market has a lot of inventory but very few properties under contract.  It appears to be the toughest selling category, but this report does not include condos which is a whole different market. 
VACANT LAND:
Haiku has 33 listings of vacant land priced from $350,000 to $12,000,000 and only 3 are pending, priced from $360,000 to $479,500 Wailea has … (8 comments)

for sale: Kahakuloa Maui market update - great views at the other upcountry - 06/26/18 08:09 PM
There are great big views at Kahakuloa Maui, the "other upcountry".
Sometimes buyers are looking for a nice home in the country and they don't want to be upcountry - Kula, Pukalani and Makawao.  There's a couple of alternatives on this side of the island: Wailuku Country Estates just on the outskirts of Wailuku, and Kahakuloa which is a little further out the Kahekili Highway.

What's for sale right now in Olinda Maui?
Olinda is a region of upcountry Maui that's located above the town of Makawao.  If you drive up Olinda Road from the crossroads with Makawao Ave. you'll go up past the Oskie Rice rodeo grounds and Seabury Hall campus.  It's a delightful drive along a winding road that climbs higher and higher amidst towering eucalyptus trees and open pastures. At the very top is the Waihou Spring Forest Reserve with hiking trails through the pine trees.  The road then turns back down and becomes Piiholo Road which eventually comes back to Makawao Ave. by … (4 comments)

A quick condo sale in Kihei Maui makes my weekend!
I'm not usually one to brag about my sales, but this was a really quick one by Maui standards.  With only 2 opportunities to show the unit, due to heavy bookings, it was amazing it went under contract so quickly and sold in just 65 days.  It could have been quicker but there were some delays due to buyer and seller being on the mainland and both were doing 1031 exchanges.

Haiku Maui HI 96708 - vacant land market update Feb 2018
Here's a quick report of the real estate market activity in my part of the island, Haiku. It covers a large area and there is so much diversity that it's really hard to make any comparisons, but if you follow the market you might find some interesting bits. At this point, it looks like sales volume is up from last year, and maybe even prices are up. Obviously there is a lot of inventory of large parcels and expensive parcels.  If you can afford these prices, there are some really great … (4 comments)
