Kapalua Resort: A Market Update

While sales in the Kapalua Resort market have been slower than in years past, it's noteworthy that the market is showing signs of improvement over the past month.  In fact, there are currently six escrows reported in MLS:

  • Golf Villa, 2B/2B, $658,000, Original Condition
  • Golf Villa, 2B/2B, $750,000, Original Condition
  • Ridge Villa, 1B/2B, $899,900, Renovated
  • Bay Villa, 1B/1B, $799,000,  Gold Oceanview
  • Bay Villa, 1B/1B, $1,395,000,  Gold Oceanfront
  • Pineapple Hill Home, 4B/4.5B, $2,645,000

The majority of the sales are at the lower end pricepoint of the available inventory/view category for each neighborhood. 

For example, the Golf Villas, which are typically the lowest buy in to the resort condominium market, have seen the majority of the sales activity, with four closings and two pending sales.   Likewise, homes in Pineapple Hill phase I run a close second, with four sales, and one pending sale.  Pineapple Hill tends to be the lowest entry to the residential market in the resort.

The Bay Villas have also seen an increase in activity, with two sales, and two pending sales.  The pending sale at the Ridge Villas is the first for this year.  The markets at the Ironwoods, Coconut Grove, and Plantation Estates/Honolua Ridge remain flat, with no sales or pending sales year to date.
