Maui Meadows 2nd Quarter Sales Stats – Impressive Activity For Upper End Homes
Maui Meadows has had a couple of quarters of unimpressive sales stats. This quarter has knocked it out of the park. Not sure why there was so much activity, but what was really impressive were the numbers of sales and pending listings over $1 mil.
Upper End Homes Prove to be an Active Price Range
As inventory of homes in Wailea decrease, we see people flock to the higher end homes of Maui Meadows. Why, you ask? Because Maui Meadows is basically just across the street, it offers:
- better views
- homes that are less pricey
- no pesky HOA and Community dues and requirements
For the sales period April 1, 2013 through June 30, 2013, there were 11 closed transactions. The closings ranged in price from a low of $575,000 for a 2 bedroom, 1 bath 700 square foot cottage to $1,975,000 for a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath 3,440 square foot executive home. The most interesting fact is that 7 listings sold over $1 mil and 4 listings sold under.
Currently in escrow (which includes up to August 1), there are 9 properties. 4 properties are listed over $1 mil and 5 under $1 mil. So, we see the trend of upper end homes being an active price range.
