Of course you have to keep in mind that there are many factors that contribute to each sale.  Due to the diversity of listings in the Kula area, and the relatively low volume, the stats can be quite different from month to month, and year to year.  That's when you need the advice of a local Realtor to help make sense of it all.  You can find a good Maui Realtor right here...

Eva B. Liland with Century 21 Doug Anderson  These stats are from our MLS provider, Paragon.  I just have to bring up all the sales during the year 2016 in that area.  Since we have generally small sales numbers it's easy enough to do, otherwise I would break it down into smaller areas.
