*It is common for home prices to increase this time of year due to it being peak season for Maui. This year is very different. Maui home sales have decrease, inventory has decreased, and values continue to increase.
**Total Maui home sales are down over 7.1% from the same time period last year through November 2019. Median home values have continued to increase. Inventory levels have remained low which is likely helping to keep home values stable. Concerns over the economy likely has affected both pending and recent home sales on Maui, but both home sales and pending sales have rebounded since June. At this point, low inventory and low interest rates are fueling buyer demand. As long as inventory remains low we can likely expect Maui home values to continue to increase for the near future. If we do see inventory increase we may see home values plateau and possibly decrease. There is no sign of this happening anytime soon.
***COVID-19 continues to impact the Maui Real Estate Market. It is too early to tell how it may affect the local housing market longterm. In June home sales started to rebound. Although homes sales activity has rebounded, activity is still lower than what we saw during the same time period in 2019. With Real Estate Agents considered nonessential throughout Maui County through parts of March and April no showings of homes or condominiums were allowed. This affected pending sales for March and April, 2020 and closed sales starting in April and May, 2020. We have seen a decrease in new listing activity. Trends are just now starting to show the affect COVID has had on Maui real estate sales. Unusually low inventory with low interest rates is fueling the increase of home values at this time on Maui. As long as home inventory and interest rates remain low we can expect this trend to continue.
****Tourism on Maui open back up starting October 15, 2020. According to the State of Hawaii, if all goes well it may take as many as three years for tourism to return to pre COVID levels. It may take many months before we start to see how tourism may impact the Maui housing market. November data showed that occupancy at resorts and vacation condos was around 20% in November. Normal occupancy rates in November are closer to 80%.
