Are you vaccinated against COVID-19 yet?If you live on Maui you can now sign up for your vaccinations if you're 16 or older.  Don't wait.  If we all do our part, the sooner we can get back to "normal" again.I outlined the process my husband and I went through here on Maui, and it was really easy and simple, so there's no excuse. It feels GREAT to be over that hurdle.Check out my other blog for all the details.If you're on the fence, just get over it, and get your free vaccines and be happy and healthy. Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers26 Baldwin Ave, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635

Back to blogging - a new development in Wailuku MauiBoy have I been lazy about blogging lately!  This pandemic really took the wind out of my blogging sails, and I just let it slide by without much attention.  Even my other blog on my own website took a hit.  So I just stopped by here to see if I can remember how this goes... haha.  The teaser picture above is from a brand new gated community subdivsion in Wailuku Maui, called La'ikena at Kehalani.  It's a smaller neighborhood, inside a larger master planned community of Kehalani (which covers a lot of ground in the outlying parts of this central city).So I'm not going into all the details, but you can learn more on my recent post called: La’ikeha at Kehalani – Wailuku Maui vacant lots for sale with great viewsReally I'm just flexing my...

 If you are not solid on the ins and outs of down payment, don't worry, you are truly not alone, There is so much misinformation floating around about down payments. Have you noticed on many payment calculators on like Zillow or Real-Estate Websites, the calculator is set at a 20% Down Payment, which makes you believe, this is what you should do, it can be hard to keep facts straight. Here is a Quick crash Course on the down payment.  What is a down payment?It's actually much simpler than you might think. The down payment is just the percentage of the home's total sale down payment is just the percentage of the home's total sale price that you pay with your own money. (The rest of the sale price is covered by your mortgage loan .) Do I need to put 20% down?Conventional mortgage loans re...

There are great big views at Kahakuloa Maui, the "other upcountry".Sometimes buyers are looking for a nice home in the country and they don't want to be upcountry - Kula, Pukalani and Makawao.  There's a couple of alternatives on this side of the island: Wailuku Country Estates just on the outskirts of Wailuku, and Kahakuloa which is a little further out the Kahekili Highway.  Views from Maluhia Country Ranches subdivision - lots of wide open spaceThis blog post will focus on the two subdivisions in the Kahakuloa region: Cliffs at Kahakuloa and Maluhia Country Ranches. It's about a 15 minute drive from Wailuku, so not really that far out in the country along a scenic winding road, but a whole world of difference.  Living in these neighborhoods will come with an HOA and monthly fees.  Th...
