Vacant Land Sales - Maui HI

Who says there are no good deals out there?  Today's Paragon hot sheet shows that someone got a really good deal on 1.6 acres of land in Haiku, with an ocean view.  Originally listed at $450,000 this parcel on Aoku Place ended up selling for $175,000 - all cash.  That's less than half price!

What were the drawbacks?

  • no county water meter
  • former pineapple field
  • easement access

What were the benefits?

  • ocean views
  • mostly flat and usable
  • zoned AG

This Haiku vacant land took 452 days to sell, but was only under contract for less than 3 weeks.  What took so long?  Let's face it - it was way overpriced when it hit the market.

Are you shopping for vacant land in Haiku Maui?  You can begin your search at www.eastmaui.com  where you can find the active and pending listings in our MLS for Maui County.

On the other hand, if you'd rather skip the hassle of builidng, what about a HAIKU HOME FOR SALE?

Oh my!  What a tempting thought -- some flat, undeveloped land on an island with a view of the sea and warm weather all year round and...exactly why are we not ALL moving there in a heartbeat?

I hear homes in Detroit are going for less than $20,000.  I guess you could call that priced right.

Georgina -

Hard to believe that someone was able to purchase that "piece of paradise" for that price.

That is a million dollar view!

I think 1.6 acres for $175,000 is a bargain, especially in Hawaii. Anywhere in Hawaii, ocean view or not.

That's a good price for an ocean view lot. Nothing like that yet on Kauai. But land is definitely the most sluggish portion of the market. People know there's a limited supply so the prices have not moved much yet on land. Sounds like they did on this parcel in Maui.

Ron - you're right, land sales are really slow right now.  But things will change.
