Kihei Akahi Market Update 2018

The Kihei Akahi market did not get off to the best start in 2018 with only 1 unit sold through the entire first quarter. However, once it hit Q2, the market picked up some moment where it saw 50% of all units sold in 2018; April saw 3 units sold, while May saw 4 units sold. It isn’t atypical for a Kihei condo market to see most of its sales made up at one time. Bunches of sales will usually cluster around 1-2 months after a busy season once the deals are finally pushed through escrow.

October was the next most successful month where it saw 3 sales within just a few weeks of each other. Most impressive has been the strong demand for the units. All 14 units sold only needed 6 months to complete the sale, from listing to closing. More than half of the units only needed 3 months to secure a new owner.

Kihei Akahi actually has one of the lower barrier to entries among the Kihei condos. The lowest priced unit sold closed for a price in the upper $200k range; while on the upper end, the highest priced unit closed for $600k. The middle market around $400k was the most dominant as it represents more than 50% of the units sold.
