Maui Real Estate Market Overview and Buyer Statistics: Quarter 1 | 2018

Many Buyers and Sellers want to know where buyers of Maui County real estate call home (in this case, their legal residence).  There is often a misperception that the majority of our foreign buyers come from Asia.  While this might be true for Oʻahu’s market (particularly Honolulu), it hasn’t been the case for Maui County, which includes the islands of Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi.  Each year, Title Guaranty, one of Hawaiʻi’s most reputable Title and Escrow Companies, provides us with Buyer statistics.

So far in 2018, we see a similar pattern of where Buyers of Maui real estate originate, both from abroad and the mainland US. Canada continues to be the primary foreign feeder market, though changes in their economy have been felt here on island.

When looking at our mainland market, the largest mainland feeder markets are California and Washington. This particularly holds true in the resort markets in West Maui (Kapalua, Kāʻanapali) and South Maui (Mākena, Wailea, Kīhei).
