Maui Visitor Count is up for October.

 Last month September was pretty quiet on Maui.

My daughter in law is the manager for Chico's women's retail clothing boutique in The Shops at Wailea.  She was saying their number of shoppers is way up from last month so this is a good sign.

Gas Prices Finally Drop in Maui.
 Sold
 Okay our prices onMaui are still $4.39 a gallon that's a start.  Oahu is under $4.00 a gallon.  They tell us that we pay more county gas taxes I guess.  So it's a little improvement I would only hope to see it under the $4 range.  I sold my gas guzzler and I am enjoying 27 miles per gallon.  I notice these beautiful 4x4 trucks for sale for $8,000. I guess no one wants them any more.  So maybe this is a shaking time.  We will be seeing more fuel efficient cars or the … (4 comments)

maui real estate for sale: Multiple Offers in California Real Estate Market - 09/18/08 12:19 PM
I was reading where in California home sales surge as prices plummet.  Homes under $200K are getting multiple offers. Could this be a sign that maybe the bottom of the housing market is happening at least in the lower end of the market.  In Hawaii it is still pretty slow but I was surprised to see multiple offers on a property I was working on. Lets hope for everyone that it is the bottom or close and the housing market can stabilize and get the financial market on its feet. Hawaii always follows the California so seeing a stabilizing in the … (0 comments)

So what is happening in the Real Estate Market?
 
So is it Dome and Gloom or is it Happy Days are here again. Well from where I sit in my small world.  It looks like there are serious issues out there.  The real estate market is in a transforming state.  You have Government bail outs and forclosures.  People bought into the greed to leverage and go for it. Well there are a lot of  people that are stuck and their backs are up against the wall in this current market. Saying that, business goes on as usual. So what is … (5 comments)
