Market Spotlight: West Maui Oceanfront and Beachfront Homes

It's everyone's dream...well, at least almost everyone that I meet with during the course of my work--to live by the beach...I see posts on instagram and facebook of idyllic settings with, "Life is short, buy the beach house".  If you're going to do it, there's no better place to live by the beach than Maui.

Consistently rated amongst the top islands in the world, Maui is a destination that is attracting second homeowners that may have considered purchasing outside of the US for several reasons not limited to but including the legal system of property ownership, currency, and medical care.

With much of the shoreline developed in condominium residences, there are very few oceanfront and beachfront homes for sale on Maui.

This week's Market Report focuses on the area of Maui known as West Maui, which includes Olowalu, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Honokowai, Kahana, Napili and Kapalua.  Perhaps the best known are Lahaina, which is a charming town that is a popular tourist destination, and the resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua.

For more information on the West Maui Oceanfront Market, including a listing overview of the beachfront and oceanfront homes for sale, average list prices, pending sales and sales year to date, read the West Maui Oceanfront and Beachfront Homes: Market Update and Report

Lots of people are curious about the market, it would be good to include some of the actual data in the blog itself.

Thank you Michelle--the last sentence is to direct people to the blog post on my website, which has the detailed statistics including the averages ($/Sq.Ft, list prices, sales prices, etc) for the West Maui oceanfront home market.  I didn't want to duplicate the post, and had hoped to direct people to my site to read the update in its entirety.

I believe he had a home here on Maui and loved it very much.
