Best Places to Live In the World

Before, During and After the Corona Virus - A Worst Case Scenario

 

 

Many people are now asking how to survive a pandemic?

So where is the Best Place to Live in the World Before, During and After the Corona Virus?

(as a long time Maui Resident and Real Estate Expert, I would also argue Maui is the best island in Hawaii to live on)

Whether you assume the worst case or best case scenario for what is going to happen in the future, the answer to the question is still the same. 

Hawaii is possibly the best place to position yourself and your family

Maui Property Taxes

Calculator

One of the most common questions I get selling real estate on Maui is "How much are taxes?" With so many people retiring on a fixed income, or hard working families looking to keep home ownership costs under control, knowing what the tax man will take is a major key consideration in a purchase. 

Here are the top 5 things you need to know about real property taxes on Maui. (Click Here for Maui Tax Calculator)

  1. The advertised tax cost in the listing is not necessarily what you will be paying! Why? Because when you close on a property on Maui, you “inherit” the tax rate of the previous owner, until the next fiscal tax year (which actually begins in the summer!) So let’s say you purchased a home from a second

Maui Real Estate Closings Drop 65% in May

 

Aloha! The Maui Real Estate market is interesting to say the least. New Listings have decreased 15.5% for Single Family homes and 18.8% for Condominium homes. So inventory could in fact become even leaner than it was pre-COVID. And "Days on Market" increased 13.3 percent for Single Family homes and 28.7 percent for Condominium homes. Buyers have been quicker to return to the housing market in force than sellers, who have been showing a bit more reluctance to list their homes than is typical for this time of year. But trends are improving and as states and localities continue to moderate their COVID-19 policies, real estate activity is expected to continue to improve in the coming weeks.
