Maui Home Prices Increase While Sales Soar in March

March was an interesting month for the Maui real estate market, to say the least. Based on the data released by the Realtors Association of Maui, single-family home sales shot up 60 percent, compared to the same month last year. The growth came in conjunction with an increase in inventory.

In the midst of this surge in sales, the median price of a single-family home on Maui also increased, and by no less than 14.3 percent, year-over-year. Between the price and sales increases, March was a powerful month for both buyers and sellers, generating strong momentum for the real estate market. The island has also seen a respectable level of commercial real estate investment activity over the past few years, choices that are likely being celebrated after last month's performance.

The number of Maui home sales tallied at 101 compared to 63 last year, while median prices settled at $769,000, which is the highest it has been since 2006. Meanwhile, median condo prices fell 16 percent to $390,000, compared to $465,000 in the same month last year. At the same time, the number of sales increased 15 percent to 130.

The report also provides data on prices in the various areas of Maui. The Wailea and Kapalua areas saw the highest median prices, while areas like Central Maui and Makawao/Olinda/Haliimaile were among the most affordable. You can find the specific medians at www.ramaui.com, but keep in mind that they aren't very significant, as they're based on a small number of sales, which can cause the numbers to swing heavily.

Based on RAM Chief Staff Executive Terry Tolman's explanation of the trends, inventory was up for the high season, which extends from December to March, and has begun declining. This is a normal part of the real estate market's yearly cycle. There are still some excellent listings on the market, for the right buyer.
