🌴 We have missed you! Hawaii is re-opening August 1st with some restrictions....
If you are planning an upcoming visit back to Maui here are a few updates we want to make you aware of. Click on the travel link above to learn more. We will keep you posted as we learn more and move forward towards August 1st...
Hawaii has done a excellent job in trying to flatten the curve of Covid-19 and have been leery of opening the state to trans-Pacific travelers because the leaders of Hawaii do not want Hawaii to become overwhelmed with a large spike in the numbers of residents as well as for visitors. It is still a work in progress but we are all doing our part and are excited to welcome everyone back to our beautiful island.
What has Maui been like since you have been away? Since the shut down our island has had some time to refresh and rejuvenate. The beaches are beautiful, the reefs have a ton of fish 🐠 and the turtles 🐢 are playing in the shore breaks. Monk seals have been visiting more often and sunning themselves on island wide beaches. It is truly a magical sight to see. Rainbows 🌈 are abundant. The whales 🐳 are gone but they will return again soon.
Interest rates are still at record lows, and with the lowered Federal Reserve lending rate and bank reserve requirements this keeps home prices high since money is fairly cheap for borrowers. Inventory still continues to remain low which means that prices have not declined as many have hoped they would during this pandemic. In fact, we are seeing some properties sell at list price and sometimes even over list price if it's a location the buyer has been waiting to own. That doesn't mean that sellers aren't motivated to sell because they are. It just means that property owners are not dropping their prices dramatically. With a large majority of people being able to work from home now, Maui is the perfect place to call home. We are doing more virtual open houses and showings by appointments & we are seeing more properties being sold sight unseen & virtually.
Let us assist you in finding the best Maui property. I know for many of you, you had to cancel your previous reservations to the island the last few months so if you did re-schedule or are planning on making a trip back to the island soon please reach out and let us know when you will be on island. We would love to get together and discuss helping you find your piece of Maui paradise. In the meantime, we are happy to put together a list of properties specific to your search parameters i.e. (pricing, location, type of property, etc.) and have them sent out to you as they come on the market or have price reductions. This way it saves you time searching for that perfect property and you only see the properties that fit your needs/parameters.
