Maui Real Estate Market Report March 2023: Will Prices Go Down This Year?

Maui Real Estate Market Report March 2023

Tackle The Lahaina Pali Trail

Lahaina Pali Trail

While there are numerous must-see destinations and amazing experiences in West Maui that are easily accessible by road, the Lahaina Pali Trail gives you a different way to enjoy a remote, natural experience on the island.

Without a flat section to speak of, you'll be going uphill for half of the hike and downhill for the other half. You can also shorten your trek by turning around at the top and making the hike around 5 miles. As one of the most exposed and challenging trails on Maui, what should you know about the trail before you…

The State of the Maui Real Estate Market 2021

Maui Real Estate Market Report

Looking back on the Maui real estate market of 2021, we saw a year unlike any we have seen before in total sales, prices, and buyer enthusiasm. A variety of unique factors combined to fuel an unprecedented acceleration in property value at the national and local levels.

Historically high demand for homes and condos on Maui driven in part by historically low-interest rates, coupled with seller reluctance and low inventory, created an extreme seller’s market where more than 5,500 transactions led to over 4.5…
