Hottest Single-Family Market in Years

Maui Real Estate Market Report

Singe-family residential inventory is extremely low with only 449 active listings on the entire island of Maui in Septemeber of 2020. Compare that to 5 years ago where we had 613 single-family homes for sale on Maui in September 2015. Buyer demand in this sector has been increasing steadily throughout COVID-19 and with fewer homes on the market, it's certainly a seller's market in single family residential. New construction is certainly not keeping up with demand and only a handful of larger residential developments are underway in places like Ilima and Anuhea at Kehalani.

262 new condo listings in August almost doubled the 133 new listings last August. Notably, the…
