Million Dollar West Maui | The Nuts & Bolts

Ever wonder how the $1M real estate market compares to everything else? Given the nature of West Maui’s high-profile resort real estate environment, it’s an easy question, or assumption to make, “everything costs a $1,000,000+.” And plainly put, I’m here to share that in some/many neighborhoods of West Maui, it absolutely does.

Additionally, if the $1M luxury mark is an indicator of real estate health of what’s to come in the market, what sort of condition are we in?

In this article, I breakdown this $1M+ luxury threshold to give you a closer look and understanding of West Maui’s real estate sector through the million-dollar lens.
