Aloha from your resident experts!

From July 1 to September 30 there were 8 listings and 5 closed sales. There weren't any expired or cancelled listings at the end of the quarter. There were 0 pending sales and 3 active listings at the end of the quarter.

Sales activity at Aina Nalu was still healthy in the 3rd Quarter, but the pace has slowed a bit.

Here's the comparison to Q2 activity:

Interest rates are still great, which is contributing to the continued sales and allowing for some price increases. Overall, Maui condo sales for September were on par with sales last year at the same time (119 in 2019, versus 120 in 2018) in spite of the fact that inventory has dropped drastically (456 active listings in September 2019, versus 530 in September 2018). At the end of August, we only had 3.7 months of inventory on hand in Maui, which is representative of a seller's market. 

The question is -what's ahead? We are here to help if you are wondering if it's time to sell.
