Hawaii Named Happiest State - So Why Not Buy a Home in Maui

When buying a home, what comes to mind? How about what your location will offer you. If happiness is your goal, you can bet you can find it here in Hawaii.
October 11, 2019


When you consider buying a home, what comes to mind? Is it price? Is it a location? Or is a bigger picture of what your home and your environment will offer you and your family. We hope it’s the last in that list and that you consider weighing what will make you happy in the end. And if happiness is your goal, you can bet you can find it here in Hawaii.

According to a recent study by Wallethub, one of the happiest places in the world to call home just so happens to be Hawaii! While buying real estate here can make you happy for many reasons, from finding a beachfront condo at the Mana Kai in Kihei to buying a house in Wailea, it’s not just the property for sale here that will leave you smiling.

According to the study it was found that in order to have a happy and full life, it’s important to have a good balance of emotional, physical, economic and social health. The study has determined what top locations consists of all these factors across the US, and it’s been found that the State of Hawaii is the one that measures the most in all of these areas combined!

In order to determine the happiest states in America, WalletHub compared the 50 states across three categories, including emotional and physical well-being, work and environment, and community and environment. Hawaii ranked number one for emotional and physical well-being, number 25 for work and environment and scored 12 for the community and environment category. Those conducting the study evaluated those dimensions using 31 relevant metrics and graded them on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing maximum happiness. Hawaii hit the number one spot with an overall score of 66.48.

In the meantime, if living in the happiest place in America has piqued your interest then make sure to contact us and let us help you get started on your Maui MLS search today.

Indulge Your Senses at the Annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival

Celebrate high-end food, paired wine, and an intimate atmosphere at the Annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival this fall!
September 27, 2019

With great homes for sale in South Maui and amazing condos for sale in Lahaina, we have everything from land to oceanfront properties for sale on Maui so it’s no wonder why you keep coming back to us week after week to see what’s new in terms of real estate. But what we’re also good at is staying up to date about some of the incredible events that occur on the island throughout the year as well and hope you continue to come to us for news on Maui! One such event that we will be sharing with you today and encouraging you to attend just so happens to be the Annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival.

The Hawaii Food & Wine Festival first started several years ago as a small and intimate three-day festival to today being held on multiple islands with a group of more than 150 chefs, winemakers, and mixologists. It also happens to be a great service to our island community, as profits go towards local efforts and community organizations. Over the years the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival has donated more than $2 million to local beneficiaries and the legacy lives on today.

While the community aspect is another reason we love this annual extravaganza, we also love the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival for its excellence in food, wine, and atmosphere. This year, for instance, there will be cocktails and mixed plates at the Sheraton Resort & Spa and there will be a pasta la vista event at the Hyatt. Both of these options will have you bringing out your finest pair of slacks and for the ladies your finest dress so you can drink and eat some of the best food and wine in the world against Maui’s epic backdrop.

We hope you consider attending the 2019 Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. It’s events such as these that make Maui worth living. If you’re ready to live your days out on the island, then don’t forget to give us a call so we can help you along your real estate journey. Take a look at some of the great Maui homes and condos we have featured throughout the website and then contact us when you see one that looks right for you.
