Maui Real Estate Advisor ~ November Issue 2023

Aloha, part of our aim is to come from gratitude and look for silver linings. The Lahaina and Kula wildfires have clearly had a dramatic and traumatic impact on the community.

Itʻs been tough, and the way forward is not clear in any way. However, forward is where we must go. The visions for the future of Lahaina are as varied and diverse as the people who live here. We can build back to serve many of the diverse interests in a way that weʻve never seen before if those varied and diverse groups are willing to undertake the "C" word, that many groups and politicians find abhorrent these days.

Compromise.

Whatever way we move forward, there is no denying the physical, emotional, and economic impact of the fires. Their effects will continue to ripple through the islands for years to come.

Real estate, and the businesses related to it, including tourism, are major drivers in the economy. So how is the market fairing? Letʻs look at the numbers.

___________________________________

SALES:

Sales are the number of properties that actually closed escrow. These properties likely went under contract anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks before closing.

Sales of homes, condos and land all declined in October, and each category hit their lowest level in many months. There are multiple reasons for the decline, including lack of inventory, interest rates, and of course, the aftermath of the fires.

Single family home sales declined in almost all areas of Maui compared to the previous month and the same month a year ago. The exception was Upcountry, but only by a small margin. There were 6 sales in Kula, and 3 sales in Makawao. Wailuku posted the highest number of sales with 11, however, several of those are in a newer development and had been under contract since May or earlier. 

Condo sales were also lower in most areas. Kihei had the most sales at 21. The largest drop in sales compared to the same month a year ago was the Napili/Honokowai/Kahana area, where there were just 7 sales compared to 20 in October of 2022.

___________________________________

INVENTORY:

Inventory tells us how many units are available for sale in each category.

Inventory levels seem to be stuck near all time lows. Even though the market seems to be slow, prices are holding due to continued high demand. So, even in these crazy days, itʻs a sellerʻs market.

With 233 homes on the market, there are only 41 in the whole county, including Molokai and Lanai, priced at $1,000,000 and under. Two of them are in Kihei and zero are in West Maui.

West Maui home prices start at $1,234,000 for a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home. Many of you may be familiar with Kahana Ridge, a nice community with nice homes. The starting price for Kahana Ridge is now $2,150,000.

Condo inventory has increased a bit. In fact, at 245 condos for sale we have the highest number of condos for sale since April of 2021. However, prices are holding, and we expect to even see demand increase as folks, including folks like us who have lost their homes, are looking for a place to live.

___________________________________

PENDING SALES:

Pending Sales represent properties that are under contract but have not yet closed. Pendings are the pipeline that tell us how many sales are likely to happen in the next couple of months.

Pending sales are down for both homes and condos. With 100 homes under contract, there are fewer under contract now than in the last few months, but there were only 112 under contract in the same month last year, so the decline isnʻt dramatic. With the current level of demand and a slight increase in inventory, I wouldnʻt be surprised to see an increase in pending sales soon.

Having just 134 condos under contract is a huge change from a year ago when there were 202 under contract. In fact, there were over 300 condos consistently under contract during most of 2022. While this is a huge decline, with only 4 months of inventory, this is still a sellerʻs market. 

___________________________________

SELLING PRICES: average and median sold price

We look at Average and Median prices in all categories. A lot of people like to know the average price; however, we tend to use median for most of our analysis, because the median is less likely to be skewed by outliers of a few very high priced or very low-priced sales.

I recently saw a headline stating that home prices on Maui were down. Whoever wrote that isnʻt looking at the same data as us or the Realtors Association of Maui (RAM). According to RAM, the average selling price for 2023 year-to-date, at $1,770,978, is slightly higher than the YTD in 2022. This monthʻs average home selling price was down slightly from the previous month, but that is likely an indication of fewer high-end sales. We are also in the slower part of the season for high-end sales, so we could see that change with the warm winter season right around the corner.

The median selling price for a home has risen consistently over the course of the year and is holding steady at well over $1.2 million. The year-to-date median selling prices through October in 2021 and 2022 were $930,000 and $1,075,000 respectively. We are at an 18% increase in selling price year over year according to RAM. So much for the expected negative impact for higher interest rates.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the Maui real estate market over the next few months, to say the least. In the meantime, there are a lot of people who need help and will for some time to come. The team at AGM is working to help Mauiʻs keiki with their basic day-to-day needs, and hopes to continue, especially with mental health support, in the months and years ahead.

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea - November 9, 2023

Update from Maui

Happy Aloha Friday (almost!), we feel like we can tentatively start saying that again, for through the ashes we are slowly seeing beauty. The experts are saying the new growth on the Banyan tree is a positive sign of recovery; and with it a symbol of hope. We love the green!

We're choosing to focus on the positive and although there are still many tough and bumpy roads ahead, we are thankful for the small things. Like Cool Cats, one of our favorite Lahaina restaurants, is reopening in Kihei! It will feel like a little bit of home. 

The Salvation Army is partnering with Walmart for the upcoming "Maui Community Angel Tree Distribution Event" on Nov. 18 & 19. Walmart donated over 30,000 toys to be distributed to children 0-15. Click here to read more and to register your children.

Otherwise, the weather is starting to cool down; and for that we are SO thankful! We would love to know how each of you are doing, feel free to email, text or call. We'd love to chat; about real estate, life or anything else you can think of!

Maui Real Estate Advisor ~ Issue 129, October 2023

Aloha,

It has been a minute, several minutes in fact. For those of you who we haven't had the opportunity to connect with, Barb and I did lose our home, as did all of our neighbors at our beloved Aina Nalu. Aina Nalu was only 1 of 10 condo complexes in Lahaina that were totally or partially destroyed by the fire. Dickenson Square, right across the street from Aina Nalu, where our office was located, was also destroyed. So, needless to say, we've been feeling rather displaced and a little off balance.

The agents of Aloha Group wasted no time in recognizing that the needs of our keiki, especially the mental health needs, needed more support. They immediately started raising funds and quickly began distributing funds to the kids and their families. Follow this link for more about the Keiki Fire Relief Fund

We also continue to be thankful for all the volunteers that have come from near and far to help however they can, and there have been so many of you! There are still so many unknowns, and our idyllic life as we knew it has been irrevocably changed, but time waits for no man, so we put our chins up and continue.

On the brighter side, we are in our new condo in Kihei, and we just put the finishing touches on our office. And no, I did not use any curse words while putting together our chairs or desks.

Though we feel a bit far from our community and Lahaina is still home; we are so grateful to have a place to hang our hats. There are so many who are still looking for a semi-permanent roof, and many who are feeling like they many have to move off island, if only until we can start rebuilding. Emotions are still all over the place, particularly as more and more people have been allowed into Lahaina and are able to sift through the ashes of their home. Grief at what was lost, but glimmers of joy at small treasures and memories that were found. The Banyan Tree has become a beacon of hope; it continues to sprout green leaves and thrive beneath the layers of devastation.

The great news is that the rest of Maui is open! Kapalua to Kaanapali, Central Maui, East Maui and South Maui are all welcoming visitors with open arms. 

So, what is real estate doing on Maui?

_____________________________________________________________________

SALES:

Sales are the number of properties that actually closed escrow. These properties likely went under contract anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks before closing.

At above 7%, interest rates are the highest level they have been in 23 years, causing some buyers to delay their home purchase and wait it out. On the other hand, inventory is still low causing some buyers to want to hurry to purchase a home or second home. 

Maui real estate is still sitting in the Seller's Market category, but as it stands, 56.1% of homes sold in the last month were sold at below asking prices; which seems to indicate that selling prices were too high or some sellers were impacted by the fires in August? However, considering the median sold price on a home is up 18.6% since September 2022, sellers are still able to sell at higher prices.

_____________________________________________________________________

INVENTORY:

Inventory tells us how many units are available for sale in each category.

In December of 2022 and January of 2023 there were 271 homes for sale which steadily dropped off to 187 homes for sale in August. However, and somewhat surprisingly, considering the market and the fires, inventory increased to 212 in September, which isn't too far off from the 236 that were listed for sale in September of 2022.

Inventory for condos, which is still low, has been fairly steady throughout this year, but has had a significant increase compared to the 155 listed for sale year to date. Inventory fell in August, again not surprisingly, but like home inventory, increased in September.

_____________________________________________________________________

PENDING SALES:

Pending Sales represent properties that are under contract but have not yet closed. Pendings are the pipeline that tell us how many sales are likely to happen in the next couple of months.

Pending sales are down for both homes and condos in September, which is not surprising in the wake of the August fires across the island. Not only Lahaina was impacted; there were fires in Kula in Kihei. We expect October numbers to mirror that performance due to the disruption and impact on the island economy.

___________________________________________________________________

SELLING PRICES: average and median sold price

We look at Average and Median prices in all categories. A lot of people like to know the average price; however, we tend to use median for most of our analysis, because the median is less likely to be skewed by outliers of a few very high priced or very low-priced sales.

Nationally, home prices were up 4.6% from last year according to FHFA Purchase Only House Price Index. On Maui however, the median selling price of $1,294,500 for homes is up 27.3% from this time last year. That's about how I feel every time I buy groceries.

The median selling price for condos at $789,500 is down 1.3% for September 2022. Which considering many of our condo sales came from Lahaina that doesn't seem too bad a number. We do expect it will continue to drop when compared year-over-year.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Overall, we remain positive that the Maui market will stay strong, though not without some bumps along the way. There have been a surprising number of new listing in the last week (23 new homes, 25 new condos) and we continue to meet with folks who are interested in listing their property. Buyers may have less competition now because there is less activity on the island.

We are here to help and would appreciate the opportunity to assist anyone who wants to make a change, whether buying or selling, in this shifting market.

Aloha,

It is amazing how life just keeps going; in times like these it feels like it should just stop and pause, if even for a minute. 

Lahainaluna is tentatively scheduled to reopen after fall break in October. Click here to read more. And the EPA is starting to remove and dispose of hazardous materials in homes in Lahaina. This will take months to complete, but it is one step closer in allowing home owners to return to their property. Click here to read more

Maui Newsletter - August 16, 2023

Update from Maui

Aloha,

Two weeks, just two short weeks since many of our lives changed, and two weeks that have felt like the longest of our lives. Our hearts are broken for each and every one of you that lost a loved one, a home, or a business. We grieve with you.

We are surviving, working on insurance claims, long-term housing and continuing to be grateful that our team is okay. Recovery efforts continue to be in full effect; Samaritans Purse is now on-island and available to sift through the rubble on behalf of families or will accompany families and be there to help while they go through the ashes for those areas that have been cleared.  

Sacred Hearts and Kam III were destroyed in the fire, Princess, LIS and Lahainaluna are still standing but are not currently operable, leaving so many students displaced. Maui Preparatory Academy opened its doors and accepted around 120 new students. Through generous donations, most of them were at little or no cost. These young people are our joy and hope, they are resilient and kind and thoughtful. They are why we will rise. 

Many are wondering what they can do right now, there are a myriad of GoFundMe sites that are directly helping families, but also remember that the rest of Maui is still OPEN. Come on your vacation and if you usually stay in Lahaina, explore a new part of the island. We will need you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea ~ August 6, 2023

Update from Maui ~ your daily dose of "vitamin sea"

Aloha!

We are quickly heading into the middle of August and the end of summer! While it is sad to say goodbye to the lazy days of late wake-ups and being bored, there is something nice about getting back into the routine of school.

We're headed into our "slow" season on Maui, summer vacations have ended, the weather isn't quite cold enough elsewhere to warrant a trip to the tropics and the whales are still on their summer vacation in Alaska. Though it does still seem busy, the island is a bit quieter, the beaches aren't quite so full and your Costco trip might be a little less crowded. 

Remember to drop us a line whether you're here next month, or 3 months from now, we'd love to catch up!
Don't let the swaying palm trees and tranquil waters fool you...this beach was HOT!

Maui Real Estate Advisor ~ Issue 128, July 2023

Aloha!


Summer is in full swing on Maui, kids have been out of school long enough to get bored and parents to get a little crazy! Beach parking lots are packed, and if youʻre lucky enough to find a spot for you car, you might be out of luck for a place to relax. Itʻs not often that Maui beaches are reminiscent of a busy California beach, but a nice day in July would be the time. However, the water is still sparkling, and the palm trees are still swaying, so it is still paradise. 

Interestingly though, both May and June reported lower visitor numbers to the island. While that certainly had an effect on the lodging industry, spending everywhere else was up, which is made apparent when you're trying to get a reservation at your favorite restaurant! July has seemed busier, but if you're wanting a quick get-away, there are deals to be had, both on airlines and lodging.

The weather has been hovering around 85 degrees and the trade winds have been gently blowing most of the month. Hurricane Calvin passed through, but all we got was a bit of rain and wind.

We know the temperature on Maui is hot, but how is the real estate market. Summer is typically a hotter time for the real estate market. Things are a bit cooler this year with the low inventory and higher borrowing costs. Fed Chair Powell, along with some other powerful financiers, is continuing to increase interest rates, which in turn kicks up mortgage rates. So it has stalled some buyers and sellers. How is that affecting the Maui real estate market? Let's do the numbers.

__________________________________________________

SALES:

Sales are the number of properties that actually closed escrow. These properties likely went under contract anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks before closing.

According to the National Association of REALTORS® home sales were down 20% nationally from June 2022 to June 2023. On Maui the number is a little bit higher.

From January to June of 2022 there were 568 closed home sales on Maui, and from January to June 2023 the number dropped to 374, which is about a 34% decrease.

From January to June 2022 there were 973 closed condo sales, and from January to June 2023 the condo sales dropped to 506, which is about a 47% decrease.

Another way to look at this is that home sales have dropped by one-third and condo sales are off by half. That sounds devastating to the real estate market.

What that shows is the same old story of low inventory. The Maui market has remained strong despite the rising interest rates, but what is selling is a reflection of what is available. And condos, at certain price points, continue to sell as soon as they are listed. 

__________________________________________________

INVENTORY:

Inventory tells us how many units are available for sale in each category.

June 2022 showed 2.9 months of homes inventory; compared to June 2023, there is 3.7 months of inventory. That sounds like good news for inventory, but when you look at the actual numbers, you see that June has the second lowest number of homes for sale of any month so far this year.

Condo inventory is reflecting a similar illusion. Last June we had enough condo inventory for 1.6 months and we have almost doubled that at 2.8 months of inventory. However, last June there were 150 condo sales, and this June there were only 90 sales. So even through there is more inventory coming to the market, it isn't lasting long, particularly for vacation rentable condos. It is still challenging for prospective buyers to find that perfect property.

SELLING PRICES: average and median sold price

We look at Average and Median prices in all categories. A lot of people like to know the average price; however, we tend to use median for most of our analysis, because the median is less likely to be skewed by outliers of a few very high priced or very low-priced sales.

There have been some discouraging trends nationally with home values; according to the National Association of REALTORS® the median home sales price in May was down 3.1% from a year ago, and that was the fourth consecutive month of declining home prices year-over-year.

We have not seen that on Maui, and the median home sales prices have remained fairly steady. In fact there was a continued increase in home prices across the various neighborhoods on Maui. The low inventory and high demand from both residents and out-of-state buyers contributed to the slight increase. We are still seeing multiple offers and strong sales prices, particularly with condos. 

Vacation rental properties are the most sought after property on Maui, and as mentioned, they are sold nearly as soon as they hit the market.

We have a FREE 1031 Exchange seminar on August 10 at the Kahului branch of the American Savings Bank. It starts at 6 pm, and dinner will be served. We will be discussing how to grow your real estate investments through a 1031 exchange, and the American Savings Bank team will provide some insight into loans for investments and how you can use your equity in your home to invest in other properties. Space is limited, so register through our website today. We hope to see your there!

If you would like to learn about a 1031 Exchange now, click here to watch a previously recorded version of our seminar. 

If you have any questions about what is happening on Maui or any real estate, we'd love to hear from you.
