In terms of the whole island, drops seem to be a trend. New listings decreased by 14.8 percent for single-family homes and 21.4 percent for condominium homes. Pending sales decreased by 3.3 percent for single-family homes but increased slightly by 0.8 percent for condominium homes. Inventory decreased for both single-family homes and condos on the island.
According to the report, the Federal Reserve lowered its interest rate on July 31, which offered all-time lows to help bring relief. However, the lack of affordability in inventory and high housing prices are still impacting buyers on a national level. Now maybe as good a time as any to buy as the future is uncertain at this point. If you’re interested in buying a home on Maui, then contact us so we can get you ahead of the game.
