2023 Sotheby's Luxury Outlook Report

Sotheby's International Realty has released its Luxury Real Estate Outlook Report for 2023, which provides insights into luxury real estate markets around the globe, issues with the supply chain, inventory, and guidance such as How to Sell a High End Home During Any Type of Market.  The report provides valuable observations for Maui's real estate market, particularly in the resort areas, where there was a significant change over in ownership in 2021.  There were fewer sales in 2022, which was not unexpected, as available inventory decreased dramatically.

I'll admit it, most of us have trouble visualizing an empty room and how to make it our own.  While we find many Maui real estate listings offered furnished if it is a resort property/second home, it can be different if the seller is selling their primary residence.  Staging can be a challenge as we have so few stagers and storage options on island.

Enter Augmented Realty. Sotheby's International Realty has just introduced the Curate by Sotheby's International Realty App which allows you to furnish an empty room in a variety of styles.  The vision is to transform the home buying experience, making it easier for both buyers and sellers alike.
