Sales & prices seem steady, but is there a slow down coming?  There were 8 sales in Q3 at Kaanapali Shores, compared to 9 in Q2. Inventory for active listings increased from 10 at the end of Q2 to 15 at quarter end.   The number of units for sale during the quarter was 28, down from 33 in Q2.  At the end of the quarter, there was only one property in escrow, compared to 6 properties in escrow at the end of Q2.

With 15 active listings at the end of the quarter and 8 sales during the quarter, we had about 5.6 months of inventory.  That is pretty balanced. Pricing seems relatively stable when compared to last quarter.

On a year-to-date basis, average sales prices for condo sales in Maui are down by 2% and median prices are up 2%.  Unit sales for condos are up 7% in Maui for the year.

Kaanapali Shores has seen 25 closed transactions in the first 3 quarters of 2016 compared to 20 in the entire year 2015.

The average Days on Market for closed listings went from 215 last quarter to 396 in Q3. There were 2 units that were listed for over 1000 days and 1 short sale was listed for 455 days.

There were 2 distressed property transactions in the quarter – one short sale and one new active bank owned listing. Both properties are leaseholds, and it looks like they have been in foreclosure for years.

It’s still a good time to sell if you want to reinvest in other property or move up to your next Maui home.  Please let us know if we can assist you with a purchase or a sale!
