The Polo Beach Club condos in Wailea Maui - market update
Who wants to live in a beachfront hi-rise on Maui?  Who can afford the price tag over $2,000,000?  If you answer yes to both of these questions, then you might consider the Polo Beach Club which is right on the ocean and next door to the Fairmont Kea Lani Resort in Wailea. 
Take a peek at the beach here on an average day - plenty of sunbathers and hotel guests having a great time in the sun and sand!  The waves are gentle and the water is warm.  Be sure to … (8 comments)

Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood
If you want an oceanfront home in Kihei Maui, the options are somewhat limited, because much of the coastal real estate is taken up by condominium resorts, and beach parks.  South Kihei Road is the main artery along the coastline, and there's a few streets that extend beyond this and offer some neighborhoods with single family homes.  Uluniu Rd. is one, and Halama St. is another.  Let's see what's happening on Halama St....
Halama Street - runs between Kalama Park to the south, and up to W. Kapu Rd. to the north.

KUAU PLAZA condos are unique on Maui's north shore and here's why... 
This 3 story apartment building is like nothing else along the ocean in Paia and Kuau.  3 stories with 10 units on each floor makes for 30 short term rental units with easy access to the best north shore beaches and the trendy Paia town scene.  Does it get any better than this for an entry level home in Paia?

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)

sold: 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?

sold: 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.

This blog post will focus on the two subdivisions in the Kahakuloa region: Cliffs at Kahakuloa and Maluhia Country Ranches. It's about a 15 minute drive … (4 comments)

Paia Maui HI - April residential sales report 2018 Year-to-Date
It's been a really strong year so far, for home sales in the north shore town of Paia Maui.  Oceanfront listings are selling, and the supply of real estate for sale is drastically low!  Do you have a property to sell?  Let me help with that.

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)

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.

sold: What's so great about the Kula 200 neighborhood? - 10/31/17 02:44 PM
Kula 200 is one of the premiere neighborhoods in Upcountry Maui, situated where Pukalani meets Kula, and technically it's in Pukalani but it sure feels more like Kula.  Street names in Kula 200 include: Aulii Drive; Aulii Place; Poha Place; Lealea Place; Hoopalua Drive; Welina Place and Alokele Place.

Lots of space:  This subdivision was created in the 1970's as an Agricultural subdivision to allow owners to build a house and cottage on a few acres.  It's well thought out with underground utilities and winding roads which give it a nice country feeling.  You can see goats grazing and lot of mature … (2 comments)

The Kualono lots have sold.  After the initial frenzy when the 49 upcountry lots were offered by a lottery on 9//11/2016, things have settled down and the lots have closed.  People were dying to buy into this gated community off the Old Haleakala Highway.  Ground work is ongoing at the site while infrastructure is being completed.

sold: Hana Maui - 31 acres finds a new owner right next door - 09/30/17 06:34 PM
It's been a long and interesting process to sell a large parcel of wooded land in Hana Maui.  For most people, this is a remote area, and not a place that is normally thought of when buying property on Maui.  But to those who live in Hana, it's home, and nowhere else on earth compares to the natural beauty and lifestyle of this tropical community by the sea.
Everything is ready for closing day on Monday:
all documents are signed by buyer and seller loan funds are in place the property is ready to go nothing left to do but record the … (2 comments)
