Maui Hawaii - market statistics for first half of 2021This has been a really crazy year for real estate sales in Maui County, with so many people wanting to move to a safe and beautiful location like Hawaii.  The Covid pandemic has created a lot of options for people to work from home, so it might as well be Maui, if you can afford it.Maui has a lot more than just beaches and condos, and you never know what you might find when you explore some of the upcountry and other locations that are more affordable.Each month I like to post the full report of what sold, on my other blog (MauiHunter.com), so I'll link to those reports here.  You can get the scoop on houses, condos, and vacant land sales, by region.  There's been a lot of activity this year and prices have gone up big time.  But don...

(Kona Home Team (luva llc))
Aloha, Lance Owens (RS) here with LUVA Real Estate bringing you our monthly sales report. Talk about some crazy numbers, let's start with......"Absorption Rate": The term absorption rate refers to a metric used in the real estate market to evaluate the rate at which available homes are sold in a specific market during a given time period. It is calculated by dividing the number of homes sold in the allotted time period by the total number of available homesWith that said, it is generally understood that anything under 15% is a buyers market, anything above 20% is a sellers market. Lets roll back a few years, and we are going to skip 2020. Back in 2018 our absorption rate was 14%, so it slightly favored buyers, FF to 2019 and it hovered around 20%, so it was slightly leaning towards bein...

The ongoing trend of consistent home sales has continued to April 2021. The Realtors Association of Maui (RAM) notes that there’s a high buyer demand for prime real estate with no signs of easing up on rising market trends. West Maui has a high interest for anyone who’s looking to buy a piece of property in Hawaii.West Maui was once known as a retreat for Hawaiian royalty and is now a prime destination for every tourist, earning its place as an immediate favorite because of the richness in its history and the abundance of restaurants, shopping areas, tourist activities, and resorts. Real estate prices differ in the different parts of Maui depending on how commercially developed it is. Because the demand is going nowhere but up, it’s helpful to be aware of the current trends for West Mau...
