Mortgage Rates Drop During the COVID-19 Crisis

April 10, 2020

While the effects of COVID-19 continue to ripple through our neighborhoods and impact our overall economy, experts are saying that the situation has created a good-news, bad-news moment, where borrowers can lock in low rates to benefit in the long term.

According to the latest Maui real estate statistics, the market is steady and everyone is keeping an eye on it during this time. For the island as a whole, new listings inventory decreased by about 18%. Pending sales increased to almost 19% for single-family homes and 21.1% for condos. All regions of the country are doing well and in double digits, according to the report, so activity looks great but only time will tell as to how the current pandemic will impact these numbers in the future. 

South Maui real estate as of February 2020:

Kihei real estate

  • 12 single-family homes sold. This number is on track from the year before and it looks like prices dropped slightly but not by much. 

  • The median sales price for homes sold in Kihei was around $753,000, down from $880,000 this January. 

  • 46 condos sold in Kihei, a strong number and at a strong price point as well at a median sales price of $527,500.
