Wailea/Makena Maui – 6 Month Market Update October 2017

Wailea Maui – it’s a private community located at the south end of Kihei, along Maui’s sunny south shore. This world-class destination is comprised of single-family homes and condos, 5-star hotels and resorts, and luxury shopping and dining. With beautiful sandy beaches, numerous golf courses, and almost perfect weather year-round, Wailea appeals to everyone for a relaxing vacation. Many people from across the country and around the world own vacation homes in Wailea and Makena. You can too, as there are no restrictions on foreign ownership.

This report looks at just the residential sales of houses, NO condos or vacant land. To clarify, the CPR properties included here come with their own deeded land which makes them distinct from true condominiums.
