Are you shopping for a second home? A place to retire to? An investment property? If so, West Maui is an excellent place to start looking and now is a great time to buy.
Mortgage rates are low, last week 15 year fixed rates were reported averaging 3.25% and 30 year fixed rates averaged at less than 4.25%. These low rates help to make the monthly payments on an ocean front home in Maui more affordable and can even help offest the costs of association fees for condos in Kapalua or Kaanapali. If you are planning to finance your Maui real estate purchase with a loan, talk to a mortgage consultant about getting preapproved for a loan as many of these properties come onto the market at prices where offers are accepted after only a few weeks.
If you are planning to make a cash purchase then the interest rates are less important. However, you still need to keep an eye on the market you are interested in so you can make an offer on any new property that matches your needs for a home on Maui. It’s easy to be notified when new properties are listed. Just visit our property search page, choose your real estate preferences, and submit your search. Above the list of properties that match your criteria is a button to save your search, click on it and turn on the flash email option, you can opt to receive notices of new properties every day or just once each week. We won’t send you any other emails, your privacy is important to us.
Now all you have to do is watch for the perfect Maui property to come onto the market and when it does, let your agent know or just click on the “More Information” link to have one of our agents contact you to discuss the property.
Of course, if you prefer a more personal approach to real estate, you can contact our office and ask an agent to help you get started on your search for your luxury Maui home or beach front condo. We’re glad to help, after all at Sakamoto Properties, “Prestige is our business, reputation our Foundation.”
