Haiku, Maui Property for Sale Now

Haiku covers a fairly large area on the north shore of Maui, from the ocean to a little higher up the mountain. Haiku tends to get more rain than most other parts of the island, so the views and landscape is stunning. The lushly vegetated and gentle sloping tropical terrain is filled with an abundance of ocean views and tropical fruit trees.

There are some great opportunities in Haiku, Maui and the North Shore market in general is on the move…upward. Multiple offers are becomeing the norm, shorter days on market, and a slow but steady increase in the List AND Sale prices. Many Haiku Homes are on larger lots, feature muiltiple buildings, ohanas for rentals, and some are agriculture zoning.

Haiku has great beaches and is home to some of the most famous big wave surfing and windsurfing spots in the world, such as Hookipa, and Jaws; quite simply the most spectacular big wave spot in the world. A select few brave this wave when it breaks during the winter. The area swells each day with wind and wave surfers headed to some of the best and beautiful beaches on the island, tourists in rental cars passing through on day-trips to Hana and others who enjoy the funky beach atmosphere, restaurants and collection of shops that include unique boutiques, galleries and antiques.

Haiku is a more rural part of Maui, so most lots tend to be larger than 10,000 square feet and many times are several acres in size. Haiku is the perfect place for people who want to live with the warmth of sea level and the privacy of a rural community, but not too far from civilization.

Meghan can represent you as a BUYERS AGENT on any of the above listed Haiku Homes

Real Estate Update and Stats from Realtors Association of Maui

Below are the updates, statistics, and market summaries provided by the Realtors Association of Maui for February 2012. Key excerpts from the entire report have been cut and pasted to this blog for quick review. Enjoy!
Here is a LINK TO THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE IN FULL

Maui February 2012 Sales Statistics

February’s Sales Volume – February’s Residential Sales rose to 77 homes sold, while Condo Sales declined to 79 units sold. Land sales came in at 12 lots sold.

February’s Median Sales Prices –The Residential home median price rose significantly to $535,000, while the Condo median price declined to $287,000. Land median price was $333,925.

Days on Market Residential homes = 150 DOM, Condos = 172 DOM, Land = 371 DOM.

IN A NUT SHELL…… the good, the bad….. AND THE ROAD AHEAD ……
Well priced properties are attracting multiple offers making for a quick sale. Inventories have declined 14-22% over the past 12 months in Residential and Condo classes. Many short sales and REO (bank owned) properties will need to be absorbed as sales before we can move ahead to a more normal marketplace. Interest Rates are remaining near historic record lows which may help motivate would-be Buyers to go ahead and buy IF they can qualify. Current World and US events will have ripple effects on cost of living, consumer confidence, and our Real Estate Market.

FOR SELLERS

Sellers who don’t really need to sell (just “fishing?”) should stay off the market, and clear the
marketplace for those who REALLY have to sell. UNLESS- you are motivated to Upsize, Downsize or
Upgrade – While selling now will “net” less, your next property will cost less. Sharpen your pencil, talk to your CPA and Realtor® to explore the hidden benefits or consequences. Make no assumptions that will sting later.

To be successful, Sellers need to beat competing properties with better property condition, REALISTIC pricing, good marketing, and flexible, creative terms Days on Market figures show that properties priced right will sell in a reasonable timeframe. “Priced Right” is still the determining factor.

THE BEST Deals are selling, everything else is getting old.
Pro-Active Sellers are getting their properties appraised, inspected and surveyed in advance to encourage realistic offers from knowledgeable Buyers. This can prevent unanticipated escrow fallout or Buyers whittling your price down during the transaction when previously unknown facts come to light. Unrealistic Sellers continue to be ignored by the market and miss current opportunities that later become woefully apparent.

FOR BUYERS

Very Low interest rates prevail, however could inch up. Buyers should get Pre-Approved so
they can shop in confidence (fewer last minute disappointments due to non-funding loans).
More “short-sales” and foreclosures are happening in the marketplace, yet they can be less of a bargain than they seem, requiring more hurdles to leap and more time (often 4-6 months) to close, if at all. Be prepared, but BE REALISTIC. Lenders are much more stringent now on requirements for loan approval.

First-Time Home Buyers – Many programs are available….. Attend a First-Time Home Buyers workshop, get familiar with the process, get qualified/approved, do your homework to get your own home. Many current ownersnever thought they would be able to own until they attended a workshop, discovered they could own a home, and are glad they did.

This low point in the market is your rare chance, so check it out carefully.

Realtor Magazine says…Buyers Ready to Spend on Green


Here is a link to the Article in Realtor Magazine: LINK

“Energy efficiency is not on the wish list for home buyers in 2011—it is on the ‘must’ list,” writes Paul Cardis, CEO of Madison, Wis.–based AVID Ratings

Heating and cooling a home today is not cheap. But neither is purchasing a solar heating system, installing new double-pane windows, or replacing old appliances. For a long time, the high expense associated with “going green” has kept many home owners from embracing energy-efficient features…

But there are indications that more and more Americans are seriously considering green construction and adding new ­energy-­efficient upgrades—and determining that the cost is worth it.

“Expenditures on energy-efficient home improvements, which have been essentially flat over the last few years, will see a period of strong growth through 2014, reaching $50.2 billion in that year,” says the new Energy Efficient Homes report by Pike Research, a Boulder, Colo., market research and consulting firm focusing on clean technology.

Green Products Buyers Really Want
*High-efficiency insulation
*High-efficiency windows
*Double- and triple-glazed windows
*Tankless water heaters
*Water-conserving devices
*Products aimed at improving indoor air quality
*Renewable flooring products, such as bamboo and cork
Sources: American Institute of Architect’s Home Design Trends Survey

Maui’s EcoBroker, Meghan Clair of Coldwell Banker Island Properties is your Maui connection to all things GREEN for the home…whether you are interested in buying, selling, or just upgrading you home to be more energy efficient Meghan can help!
