Popular Kihei Starter Condos – Kihei Shores, Keonekai Villages, Southpointe at Waiakoa and Kihei Villages

First a look at the overall Maui Market…

Sales are very strong for October where we typically start seeing seasonal slow-down.  There were 257 sales in October 2017, compared with just 195 last year. Prices in general are up over 6% over the year.  We have the lowest number of active listings (less inventory) than we’ve seen since 2013! This all shows a very strong market and I would say it is a Seller’s market.  From what I’ve seen, the Canadians are back, despite their dollar exchange rate still being .78 and they have cash to buy a piece of Maui!  

This month, I’m taking a look at 4 popular Kihei starter condos – perfect for renters who want a start in this market.  I was also going to include the newest Kihei development Kamalani but there is not enough data.  They are priced a little bit higher than resales but have features that are appealing at a good price point!  Call me at 808-344-0469 if you have interest in any Kihei properties.
