Maui Hawaii - market statistics for first half of 2021
This has been a really crazy year for real estate sales in Maui County, with so many people wanting to move to a safe and beautiful location like Hawaii.  The Covid pandemic has created a lot of options for people to work from home, so it might as well be Maui, if you can afford it.
Maui has a lot more than just beaches and condos, and you never know what you might find when you explore some of the upcountry and other locations that are more affordable.

Aloha Friday from Upcountry Maui - it really is paradise
Well the bird of paradise flower has kind of fallen out of favor, but it's nice to see it still pops up in some gardens.  These pictures are from Thompson Road, in Kula Maui, where the climate is more temperate and the pastures are green and beautiful.  It's no wonder that Oprah built a dream home in the area.

Succulent gardens, rock walls at 890 Upper Kimo Drive, Kula Maui 
Take a look at the eye-popping variety of succulents, aloes, and agave at this Kula home for sale, in Upcountry Maui.  If you love gardening, you'll love this colorful garden!

Just another beautiful rainbow, as we see often here on Maui.  This was taken from up in Kula Maui, looking down towards the ocean.  The rainbow was so brilliant and you can see the faint second rainbow above it.

Maui pool homes for sale - how can I find one?
I used to have a link on my old website, that would pull up Maui homes for sale with swimming pools.  I don't think it really got much traffic, but how can you tell?  (Google Analytics - that's how)
Well my new website (www.MauiHunter.com) is a little different and it's getting good results and lots of traffic.  I'm still building new pages, and I plan to have one featuring pool homes.
In the meantime, if you're looking for a nice home on Maui with a swimming pool, just send me a message … (6 comments)
