This is the question...In a really Shakesperean way! For those who have not heard of this concept ( after all, it is used only in Hawaii and Utah, to the best of my knowledge), leasehold is a type of ownership. Most typically, when one owns a condo, for instance, they own the condo itself ( that is the space between the walls) and also a share of the common elements (pool, roof, hallways and LAND). This is called fee simple ownership. In the case of a leasehold property, one does not own a share of that land that the condo sits on. Thus, one has to " rent" that land from whoever owns it and pay a lease rent. This lease agreement is valid for so many years from today and the rent is renegotiated every so many years. For example, the lease rent for a 1bd unit at Papakea is currently $90.0...

This week the west side caravan was limited to properties in Lahaina and Kaanapali.  The information I picked up today ran the gamut from low end short sales in Kahana, to high end short sales in Kaanapali to higher end, top dollar ocean front luxury at Puamana in Lahaina.  Whether you are an investor, first time home buyer or just looking for a "reasonably" priced property on the Lahaina side, you should take a look at Kahana Manor.  Today I heard about a short sale there.  It is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath listed at $291K.  It is a short sale, so it could require some patience.  But it could be an excellent buy on the west side.For those interested in something a bit more upscale, there is trouble in paradise.  There is a lot at the Summit, an exclusive neighborhood, which is rumored to be da...

My wife and I bought a two-bedroom condo on West Maui at Kaanapali Plantation in 2003 and sold in 2006 at a 75 percent higher price.  Great timing and profit was not even our objective - we just wanted a place to live on Maui.  Based on recent sales activity, it looks like we would have just gotten about a 50 percent increase had we sold now in 2007.  Unit sales for condos are much lower than they were in 2006.  There is a plenty of inventory, with well over 500 condos listed on West Maui.We also bought a long-term rental condominium a couple of years ago and it has not appreciated.  The market has not allowed us to increase the rent enough to make it pay.  Also, a BIG attribute limiting appreciation is not having a view.  It would have been much better if we could have bought a propert...

Properties require more time to sell on West Maui than they did a year ago and there are fewer condo units being sold: The graph shows 12-month moving averages of the number of units sold each month.  However, affluent buyers are buying enough luxury homes to cause average prices for single-family home sales to increase substantially.  This is the case for West Maui much more than the island in general.  See the graph below, which shows 12-month moving averages of selling prices:My million-dollar house has not appreciated this year and the overall sales volume is fairly flat, but there are definitely good aspects of the current market.  There is limited supply and the demand will increase as baby boomers retire...  West Maui is a great place to live and invest!Aloha,
