Kamalani: Free Informational Sessions for First-Time Homebuyers
Free informational sessions for Maui residents interested in purchasing an affordable home at the new Kamalani residential community are being offered now through June 19 by the project broker. Located in north Kihei, Kamalani’s first neighborhood is offering up to 170 condominium homes designated as “Residential Workforce Housing,” also known as affordable housing.
Hosted by KW Island Living, project broker for Kamalani, the hour-long “Get to Know Kamalani” sessions will provide information about the new project, eligibility requirements for affordable home buyers as set by the County of Maui, and the sales application process.
“We’ve received tremendous interest in Kamalani from local residents, and for many of them, this is their first experience buying a home,” said Steve Baker of KW Island Living. “I remember how I felt when I bought my first condo, and we think this casual and informative talk-story session will be very helpful for first-time homebuyers.”
To date, more than 300 Maui residents have completed a homebuyer education course required to purchase an affordable home at Kamalani, and approximately 150 residents have picked up a sales application, which are due by June 30.
KW Island Living’s “Get to Know Kamalani” sessions are free, and available on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. from now through June 19, 2016. Sessions will be held at KW Island Living’s offices, located at 285-A West Kaʻahumanu Ave., Suite 201, near Macy’s at the Queen Kaʻahumanu Center. Attendees may reserve a spot by calling (808) 856-4045 or emailing [email protected] Walk-ins are also welcome.
The first increment of Kamalani offers fee simple homes with two or three bedrooms and 1.5 or 2 baths, which are available to those who meet the County of Maui’s eligibility requirements for Residential Workforce Housing.
Prices begin in the high $200,000s for a two-bedroom condominium home, and in the mid-$300,000s for a three-bedroom unit. Each home comes with a private fenced yard, standard appliances, high speed internet access, and two parking spaces for the flats or an enclosed garage with driveway parking for the townhomes.
