Kapalua Plantation Estates | Fall 2020 Market Headlines

  • To give perspective, only 1 residential property has sold thus far in 2020 and 2 are currently under contract.
  • 2 land lots have sold
  • However, in a neighborhood that averages 4-5 property sales in a 12 month period, this year’s storyline is not in the prices or in the number of sales at KPE.
  • The storyline is the speed in which this year’s offerings have gone off the market.
  • Historically speaking, the statistics say that never before have 2 residential properties at KPE sold with less than 100 days on market in a calendar year (from listing to closing day).
  • Well, history is about to change as KPE is about to have three and arguable four homes close with less than 50 days of time spent on the market. And to add to the script, the two land lots that sold this year both closed with ONLY 53 days on the market (again, from listing to closing day).
  • To explain the arguably comment above. The third property 229 Plantation Estates has actually been on the market for many years, but the sellers took it off the market and then came back with a $700K (15%) price reduction. The same property but a completely different price offering.
  • Currently, 8 homes are listed on the market for sale as are
  • 4 land lots

About the Author

Jeff Onderko

Jeff Onderko is a REALTOR Broker with Hawai'i Life. West Maui Real Estate Broker, and ultra enthusiastic advocate of Maui's Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua areas. I truly believe it's an honor & privilege to call Hawaii home. For 17 years now, West Maui is where I live, work and play. My team and I specialize in resort market home and condominium sales striving to deliver the highest level of professional service possible. With $50M+ sold, a panache for extensive statistical research and 100+ published real estate articles since 2015. I'm relevant, information driven and responsive. I bring a passionate energy, an entrepreneurial understanding and a client-first approach to my real estate business. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was an independent publisher, starting and operating Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Real Estate Weeklies, Maui Time Weekly (partner), and in 2005, I was a Mayors Small Business Award finalist. In 2009, after seeing the demand and living in an under serviced pet market, alongside my Mom, Susan we opened West Maui Pet Supply. I started my career after college as an account executive with Orlando Weekly ultimately becoming their Advertising Director. Then I moved on to Advertising Sales Manager at Orange County Weekly, in Southern California. I am native of Detroit, Michigan, but grew up in Florida splitting time between Miami, Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Fl. I was a scholarship soccer player at the University of Central Florida and graduated with a BA from their School of Communication. Always attracted to healthy lifestyle, adventure, great weather, water sports and the outdoors, I moved to Maui in the summer of 2002. When the Realtor hat comes off, I'm active in the community coaching U-14 Boys Soccer (AYSO - West Side Pride) and I still play in the West Maui open division. I'm involved along with other fellow Hawaii Life comrades volunteering regularly at the Ka Hale A Ke Ola Shelter in West Maui and I'm on the Board of the Hawaii Life Charitable Fund. Through the outlet of the WM Pet Supply, I was heavily involved with the Maui Humane Society & ASCPA getting animals adopted & spayed/neutered. When I have free time you'll find me surfing, golfing, at the gym, a regular at yoga class, hanging at home with my animals or working in the backyard on my organic micro-farm (aka: food garden). You can email me at or via phone at (808) 280-4881.
