Maui Real Estate Statistics 12.23

Each month, the Realtor's Association of Maui publishes updates on the Maui real estate market.  The report notes:

"U.S. existing-home sales rose from a 13-year low, climbing 0.8% from the previous month and breaking a five-month streak in which sales declined, according to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Despite the increase, sales were down 7.3% compared to the same period last year, as affordability challenges continue to hinder prospective buyers. Most of this period’s closed sales went under contract in October, when mortgage rates were at a two-decade high.

New Listings decreased 19.0 percent
