Maui Hawaii South Shore Condo Listings Newsletter - January 2014

Market Update: 

Happy New Year and I hope it's a good one for you so far.  The year end statistics are in for Maui County so let's take a look at what's happening.  Condo unit sales increased overall in 2013 over 2012, and in the South Maui market that was about 7-8%.  Kihei condos showed a 15/17% average/median price increase in the past year while Wailea/Makena condos showed a 30/47% increase in average/median sales price.  Total dollar volume was also up, with a 24% increase in Kihei and a 40% increase in Wailea/Makena.  Increasing sale prices have led to more inventory coming on the market.  Things are looking really good for sellers and buyers right now.
What's new on the South Shore?

Makena Sunset is a brand new 4 unit project that just hit the market.  These 4 super luxury residences are like single family homes, sharing a gated community overlooking Maluaka Beach.   The maintenance is taken care of by a Home Owners Association which will cost owners about $5,000 per month.  The 4BD/4BA units are about 4,200 sf and are built on 2 levels, with a master suite and kitchen/great room on the upper floor along with the garage.  3 more bedrooms and a family room with wet bar are on the lower floor which opens out to the pool area.  Each unit has it's own private infinity pool and spa, a huge covered lanai and built in BBQ area.  All the best materials will be used including custom designed metal gates and hand rails, and tropical tiki torches throughout.  These are yet to be built, but a prospective buyer can reserve their own unit which is being offered for $10,250,000.  These exquisite homes all sit on 1.55 acres across Makena Rd. from a beautiful sandy beach.  They will not be eligible for short term rentals, but will make wonderful second or third homes for the jet set.
