9 Effective Strategies for Affording a Down Payment in Maui, HawaiiSet a Realistic Savings Goal for Maui Real Estate: Determine the down payment needed for a Maui home. While the standard recommendation is 20%, explore options for securing a mortgage with a lower down payment. Establish a clear and achievable target aligned with your budget and financial situation. Create a Dedicated Maui Savings Account: Open a separate savings account exclusively for your Maui down payment fund. This keeps your savings organized and discourages using the money for non-housing expenses, ensuring you stay on track toward your dream Maui home. Develop a Maui-Specific Budget: Craft a detailed budget tracking your income and expenses in the context of Maui's cost of living. Identify areas to cut costs or r...

The February Maui Lifestyle newsletter for your convenience I'm posting a link to a newsletter I send out once a month, highlighting the Maui lifestyle.  This month there was a lot about the local food and food security.  We live on an island, and it's something we think about a lot since so much of our "food" is imported.  The reality is that many good foods are grown here and we should be concentrating on eating more of that, and less of the stuff they ship in.  Much of the imported stuff is processed and packaged and not all that healthy anyway.A broker's open at a local musician's home/farm in Kahakuloa was a real treat because he's also a farmer who loves his community.  We toured the farm, ate a nice lunch of local foods, did an art project, and sang along with George.  You can re...
