Maui Meadows Experiences Surprising Sales Stats for First Quarter of 2014

The first quarter of 2014 is in line with activity in the country. Sales have slowed down. There were only 4 closed sales, however, prices were high, very high in fact:

  • Mapu Place $1,300,000
  • Kupulau Drive $1,050,000
  • Kehala Drive $965,300
  • Kaimana Place $7,500,000

Whoa, wait, $7.5M in Maui Meadows? Yes, you are correct. The property consists of 2 large single family homes on multiple acres in the gated community of Kaimanu Estates. If you're not familiar, the subdivision has only 9 home sites and is bordered by acres and acres of undeveloped ranch land. So that sale was a bit out of the ordinary.

Currently, there are 5 homes under contract:

  • Kupulau Drive $3,345,000
  • Kupulau Drive $1,250,000
  • Kupulau Drive $975,000
  • Hoomua Drive $1,325,000
  • Kumulani Drive $500,000

Wait, $3.5M in Maui Meadows proper? Well, yes, but that house was amazing. Great pool and guest house and not another roof top in sight (except for your guest house), and awesome ocean views. Not to mention a spectacular Wailea-style remodel.

These sales may be bucking the current trend, but I think it points to the fact that perhaps Wailea is becoming unaffordable again and savvy buyers are looking to Maui Meadows. I don't blame them. The views can be way better up here. I know, I live here.
