Aloha from your resident experts!

From October 1 - December 31 there were 10 listings and 3 closed sales. There was 1 cancelled listing and 0 expired listings at the end of the quarter. There were 6 pending sales and 0 active listings at the end of the quarter.

Sales activity and demand for units at Aina Nalu remain strong, with some units being sold before they were listed on the MLS. There are no units for sale at this time.

The average number of days on market for Aina Nalu listings in Q4 was 65, which includes time in escrow. This compares to the average days on market for all condos sold on Maui in Q4 of 155.

Units sold in Q4 included I101 at $559,000, B107 at $560,000, and D103 at $575,000. All are downstairs 2-bed, 2-bath units. 

List prices for 2-bed, 2-bath units in Q4 ranged from $569,000 to $599,000, so prices continue to inch upward.

During the year 2019, there were 21 Aina Nalu units sold with an average days on market of 61. Sold prices were in the following ranges:

As you would expect, the lower prices were early in the year.

Continuing low interest rates and strong tourism on Maui have contributed to the strong buyer demand. 

2020 is bound to be an interesting year, and we wish we had that crystal ball. We do know that overall condo sales on Maui have remained about even with last year (about 20% below last year) in spite of low inventory levels. Prices seem to be holding, if not increasing in specific areas.
