Maui Real Estate Update

September 18, 2019

August 2019 stats are in. Lack of inventory, higher prices, and challenges with affordability continue to drive fewer sales in all categories (residential, condominium, and vacant land), though median sales prices continue to rise for all categories. Residential homes sales are down 10% from 800 homes sold to 722 homes sold for August 2019 YTD compared to August 2018 YTD and condominium sales are down 6% from 1,158 condos sold to 1,088 condos sold for the same time period. The YTD median sales price for homes is up 7% from $700,000 to $755,000, and the YTD median sales price for condos is up 4% from $497,500 to $515,000.
