Market Update

Maui sales volume are on the rise but such increase have occurred at the expense of sales prices.  As compared to the 1st and 2nd quarters of 2009, Maui has experienced a 64% increase in condominium sales volume so far in 2010.  Volume increases of 43% and 42% have also been recorded for residential property sales and vacant land sales respectively.  The median sales price for condominiums dropped 32% for Maui as a whole.  There have also been respective declines of 7% for residential properties and 31% for vacant lots. 

The reason why there is a rise in sales volume with declining sales prices is due to the excess in inventory.  At the moment, there is more than an eight month supply of both condominiums and residential properties, and more than an 11 month supply of vacant lots.  Our number of distressed properties are increasing as well with a backlog of properties in the state of foreclosure.  With all of these statistics taken together, now is an excellent time to look for some great deals in Maui real estate.

Have a wonderful week!
