Chasing the Maui housing market down from $12.4M to $1.75M
4933 Kahekili Highway has finally sold, after 7 years and 4 broker changes.
All I can say is, WOW, somebody got a really good deal on this 51 acres with a huge 5,000 sf 2BD/2BA house and a detached cottage, pool, horse barn and riding arena.
$12,400,000 was the original asking price back in the summer of 2005. Not a short sale or bank owned. No action for years. Numerous changes of brokers trying to sell this property. No solid offers until 2010 when it was listed for $2.9M and went under contract only to cancel a few months later. By 2011 the price had dropped to $1.9M and this brought out the buyers. Three more consecutive buyers tied up the estate only to cancel after a few months or a few days. The final lucky buyer was able to get an accepted offer and close the sale in 2 months, and paid only $1,750,000. It was a cash sale. What a score!
It's not often you'll see such dramatic price reductions when looking at the sales comps for Maui homes. This was a rare exception.
