What to Expect When Buying a Property on Maui

Maui Luxury Team Logo | Maui Luxury Real Estate

Do you dream of owning property on Maui?

Your dream is achievable with the right information and Maui luxury real estate agents to help. 

Here’s what you should keep in mind about Maui real estate:

Maui is Different than the Mainland

Buying a home on an island 4,000 miles away is a little different than buying a home down the street! To be successful, you’ll need a Maui real estate agent. Your agent can inform you of the market, take you on virtual showings, work within the Maui time zone to get more accomplished, and help you finance through Hawaiian banks.

There are Lots of Options! Choose the Right Location

Where you buy not only affects the home’s current and future value, but it also affects your lifestyle. Your agent will be able to conduct a more targeted home search if you outline your preferences in neighborhoods and nearby amenities. Here’s a checklist of items you should consider and communicate to your real estate agent.

  • Urban, suburban or rural
  • Proximity to the airport
  • Proximity to restaurants and retail
  • Health care facilities
  • Parks and recreation
  • Length of time you plan to live in the home 

Are you looking for an ocean oasis, or a more country feel? What about land with acres to build or use however you want? Maui has multiple desirable neighborhoods. Get a feel for each neighborhood by checking out the area pages at the bottom of our home page.

Multiple Property Types

Maui features condo, single family home, land, investment property, and interval ownership types. While condos and homes may be straightforward, what you can do with land depends on the zoning, investment properties should allow short-term rentals and require management, and every interval ownership has its terms and conditions. An agent can make sure you understand the requirements for each property. 

Land Tenure

There are two different forms of land tenure in Hawaii - leasehold and fee simple. If your property is fee simple, you own the property and the land it sits on, similar to real estate on the mainland. If your property is leasehold, however, you own the property but not the land and must pay the landowner lease rent. Also with leasehold, there‘s no guarantee the landowner will renew your lease at the end of the term.

Financing

You’ll want to do your financing with a Hawaiian bank rather than a bank on the mainland. Getting pre-qualified is the first step in owning a property in Hawaii if it is not a cash deal. 

You’ll want to:

  1. Contact your agent and they can connect you with several lenders, mortgage specialist to start the pre-qualification process. 
  2. Fill out a loan application, get pre-qualified and eventually pre-approved
  3. Once you are pre-qualified and know the amount we can set you up to receive listings within your price point so you don’t miss out on any potential dream properties. Maui luxury real estate agents Mark Sukel and Robyn Curletti

Why Use a Maui Luxury Real Estate Agent to Buy or Sell Your Maui Home?

Are you trying to buy or sell a Maui home?

Are you considering doing it all yourself?

The buying process: finding the property, securing financing, making an offer, getting homeowner’s insurance, and closing. 

The selling process: setting a price, finding a buyer, preparing the home for showings, evaluating offers, negotiating, and closing.

Are you confident you can do all this alone?

While it may save money to do it yourself, you may run into complicated issues and make mistakes along the way. Real estate agents are useful assets in buying or selling your property.

Professional Maui luxury real estate agents can offer:

Experience – An experienced agent can answer any questions and solve any problems that may arise. They have a deep knowledge of the buying and selling processes and can help navigate your next steps. You can leave stressful elements like paperwork, deadlines, and negotiation up to your agent.

Knowledge of the Market – Real estate in Maui is different than on the mainland! Maui real estate agents are immersed in the local market and its expectations. They can help set the price for your home, help you prepare for showings, introduce you to popular neighborhoods, and connect you with local financing and property management professionals.

Speed and Efficiency – The buying and selling process is quick and contains many moving parts. An agent can expertly coordinate the elements and people involved to make the process as efficient as possible. Your agent can walk you through getting pre-qualified, inspections, escrow, and more. 

Ability to Advocate for You – Your success is also your agent’s success! A real estate agent analyzes your wants and needs and makes sure you get the best outcome. In the buying process, a great agent will help you find the perfect home rather than settling. In the selling process, an agent helps get your listing out there and evaluates the best offers. A great real estate agent listens to you and communicates frequently.
