Why I love to sell vacant land on Maui

VACANT LAND FOR SALE ON MAUI

Don't you just love those vacant land transactions?  What makes them so special?  In most cases it's just vacant land without any buildings or occupants, so things can move along at a good pace, without having to consider the needs of the tenants or homeowners, and all their "stuff".

  • no people living on the property - easy to set up showings
  • no pets to watch out for (maybe some cows or horses)
  • no structures - no home inspection needed
  • no termite inspection report
  • no utility changeover

(Of course this isn't always the case, here on Maui you can often find people living in those "fruit sheds" and "stables" - hey it's home sweet home for somebody)

Land buyers tend to have a lot more cash down too, so there's less suspense with the lending.  Here in Hawaii, lenders here like to see at least a 20% down payment for vacant land.  Talk with your lender to see if you want to go with a construction loan and start your building right away. maui vacant land sales

Land sales can be quick if the seller is prepared and the buyer is ready.  Sellers should have the survey completed and any easements and encroachment agreements recorded.  If the buyer has cash, there will be no delays, and a sale could be closed in a couple of weeks, or sooner if the buyer approves.

Are you looking for some vacant land on Maui?  How big a parcel do you need?  What are your requirements?   Here's a website that will bring up all vacant land listings on Maui.  No registration needed.

Currently, on Maui, prices start at $199,000. for a half acre with views, and go up to $21,000,000. for a really huge parcel.  If you have 50% Hawaiian ancestry, you can qualify for a couple of much lower priced lots.
