Oceanfront Maui home and more, as seen on April property tour
The monthly event to see north shore Maui homes was a good one this month.  This beautiful luxury oceanfront home in Kuau was the standout listing, and priced above $5,000,000.

Haiku Town Acres - a new subdivision in central Haiku Maui
This year a new Agricultural Subdivision in Haiku has been selling many of the 40 or so lots of 2 acres or more.  Haiku Town Acres is a development by the people of West Maui Land Company, and it's been in the works for about 10 years.  When you drive up Haiku Road from the Hana Highway, it will be on your right and begins about where the turn off for Kauhikoa Road is, by the water retention pond.  Auwaha Street spans the whole subdivsion, and Hekuawa Street branches off … (4 comments)

homes: Maui real estate market random stats for July 25 2018 - 07/25/18 05:58 PM
As I'm updating some links on my 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. 
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)

Maui real estate market statistics for May 2018
Please take a look at these handy reference materials from Fidelity National Title on Maui.  The month of May reports breaks down the sales numbers for houses, condos and vacant land, and by district too.  There's a lot of good information here, but don't just get bogged down in the details.  For the big picture you need to talk to a local Realtor who knows the market first hand.  E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635

homes: Olinda Maui - what's for sale in this upcountry area? - 04/28/18 08:05 PM
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)

Kahului Maui - The Island, The Bluffs - market update spring 2018
The Island and The Bluffs are 2 side by side gated communities which are part of the greater Maui Lani development in Central Maui.  These neighborhoods were developed and built out recently, in the early part of this decade.  Owners can enjoy being surrounded by The Dunes Golf Course which makes for some open space and restful views.  Proximity to the County and State buildings, and the local hospital mean it's very convenient for those who work nearby in Wailuku and Kahului.

Sammy Hagar's Maui oceanfront home sells - $3,100,000
While I'm on the topic of celebrity real estate on Maui (see previous blog post about the Maui Brando Estate), it's notable that the oceanfront property of Sammy Hagar just closed a few days ago after being on and off the market for many years. $3,100,000 seems like a pretty good price for 9.8 oceanfront acres with a house and cottage, swimming pool and cabana, a well and solar power system!  This is the kind of property where you can be self sustaining.

I think we're experiencing another wave of REO listings here on Maui.  In Haiku alone there have been 2 new listings entering the market just this week, priced at $609,900 and $1,200,000.  So I ran a quick search to see how many, and was quite surprised at the distressed housing inventory.

Aloha Friday from Paia Maui - oceanfront opportunity
This newly listed property on Maui's north shore could be a real development gem because there's a whole acre of land, and 2 small dwellings.  The current homes have been updated and are quite charming, but there's a potential to build a much bigger home or two.  Great location and ocean views.  Gated entry for privacy.

homes: It's a wrap - finished filming another TV episode for Hawaii Life - 04/24/17 08:39 PM
Earlier this month I worked on my second episode for the Hawaii Life TV show on HGTV. 
The buyers were a young couple and they had a really good time filming the scenes, and so did I.  The first time around 3 years ago I was very nervous, but this time I was more relaxed.  We did the usual tour of 3 or 4 Maui homes for sale, and got to meet up in some scenic spots to talk about features and decisions.  They're really going to look good on camera and I hope you'll watch the new season this fall.

homes: Oceanfront shoreline in Olowalu Maui HI - 04/17/16 11:21 AM
Olowalu Maui HI
Olowalu is an oceanfront community on Maui with a historically significant shoreline of sandy and rocky beaches.  All of the beaches in Hawaii are public access and it's common to see people beachcombing or fishing, even camping out by the water.  Beachfront properties sell at a premium and you can see why.
The coral reef off shore is known as one of the healthiest on the island and it's home to black tip reef sharks and manta rays.  Snorkeling the reef is a popular activity for Maui visitors and residents.
Olowalu was an agricultural area in ancient times when sandalwood … (2 comments)

Over the rainbow at Ho'okipa Beach on Maui's north shore
You know what they say... "Where there's rain, there's rainbows".  Yes we are blessed with many beautiful rainbows on the north shore of Maui.  This is taken at Ho'okipa Beach Park on a day when windsurfers and kite boarders were all playing in the big winter waves. 
Even the birds are enjoying the wonderful weather we have here on Maui.
