Aloha Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - Paia is a fabulous area. Enjoyed reading your market report.  I wonder how many sales are fee simple?

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® These were all fee simple.  You won't find many leasehold properties on the north shore of Maui.  Many of those leasehold properties are either condos or Hawaiian Homelands, and there is a trend towards doing away with them by buying out the lease (condos).
