Overall, residential and condo unit sales numbers bounced up and down the last few months, with residential and condo inventory decreasing this month after the high-sales winter vacation season.
Canadian investors have been big participants in Maui’s real estate market, however the current Canadian dollar exchange rate (.80 US $) may motivate Canadian investors to sell, not buy.
Residential sales held steady at 88 homes sold, condominium sales rose slightly to 109 units sold and land sales came in at 12 lots sold.
The residential median price rose to $607,098, the condo median price rose to $469,000 and the land median price increased to $563,750.
Residential homes were on the market an average of 119 days, condos were on the market and average of 116 and land, 188 days. (This is the average for the properties that sold. If predominantly old inventory sells, it will move this indicator upward.
