Wailea and Makena Single Family Home Analysis

The Wailea and Makena real estate market is entering an interesting period for buyers and sellers as visitors are returning to the Valley Isle under the States’ pre-travel testing program. Now is a great time to take a deep dive into the numbers. Across the Wailea and Makena Resort, there are 12 gated neighborhoods + a number of custom homes sitting on their own private lots that do not fall within a specific neighborhood.

In total, from January 2017 to September 2020, 125 properties have exchanged hands for a total sales volume of $496 million. While some neighborhoods experienced double-digit turnover, others saw little to no homes sold.
