It's a beautiful home in Makawao Maui, so why is it abandoned?

Ulana St. Makawao Maui HI 96768

I've seen this house in Maui Uplands the last time it was on the market and it was such a nice home, with great views!  It sold quickly for $1.1M in October of 2005.

As I drove by 61 Ulana Street the other day I was wondering who lives there now, only to see signs of neglect in the driveway.  Then I spied the notices taped to the front door... uh oh that's not a good sign.

Sure enough the house was abandoned and the locks had been changed.  Another foreclosure that will come on the real estate market at some point in the future, but we don't know when.

I'm always a bit leary with abandoned anything.

I don't know I am not spooked by an abandoned property many times I have found the owners simply couldn't afford and moved out to avoid all the questions and embarrassment.

if this hits the market I imagine it wont be available long

There is a house with riparian rights (private beach) in Evanston Il that was a ranch and torn down and a mega mansion built by an idiot about 5  to 7 years ago. It never sold and was gaudy. It still hasn't sold and is an eye sore. I know that everything is ruined from being empty and I think it is a tear down. All the other houses near by are multi million due to the water rights but they are more reasonable then this house I am talking about has, it gone down in price and multiple listings agents, about half the original price, no takers.

It is sad to see foreclosures but they do provide opportunities for new buyers.

Have a wonderful weekend.

***How Sad*** to see that Makawao home in that condition.  Makawao is such a unique **Historic** town on Maui.  My guess is that the owners might have lost their jobs and could not make the payments.  This is just a guess, I don't know. Makawao is a quiet town, not many awesome job opportunities. 

Smiles and Mahalo To You,  Myrna  :) :) :)  :(o_o):

Georgina, another beautiful Maui home that could tell some stories but for now is just waiting until one day it will  make a new owner proud.

Such a shame since it is indeed a beautiful home! Our foreclosures have REALLY slowed down, thank heaven!

This looks like a real opportunity for a buyer who's on her toes!
