Entering the Fall with Optimism!

We have so much news to share with you! We are very excited about the new upgrades to our website MauiRealEstate.NET. For your enjoyment we now offer you your own private “Watch List”. This popular addition to our special features allows you to monitor a specific property or an entire search, all based on the criteria you’ve chosen. If there is a price change, status change, addition to a specific area or description, you can choose to receive a notification. You control what you will be notified about. This same function is available on the iPhone/Android version of our website: http://www.mauirealestate.net/iphone_index.html

INTRODUCING OUR FEATURED PROPERTY LIST!

Our exclusive “Featured Property List” allows our exclusive listings to receive even more special attention allowing our seller’s properties maximum exposure. Our exclusive listings rotate throughout our system both on the home page and within the property search results, continuously posting our exclusive listings. If you or someone you know is thinking of selling, this new value added service could be utilized by you.

YOUR PROPERTY COULD BE A STAR:

Casting Calls are coming from the Maui County Film Office to list properties as potential filming sites. Interesting opportunity. Here’s the link: http://mauinow.com/2012/10/02/maui-film-location-database-wants-more-property-listing/

YOUR TIME IS IMPORTANT!

We all agree, time is a valuable commodity. Make your time more efficient and effective. We learned about a program “Brightnest” which emails maintenance tips (big & small) WITHOUT SPAMMING YOU. We have purchased this program so that we can offer it to you free as one of our valuable clients. All your property projects can be managed through the ease  of Brightness tips. We started using it and it really is helpful. Here’s the link: https://brightnest.com/invite/donna-hansen

THE HANSEN OHANA UDPATE:

It has been a very busy nine months with the many ups and downs in our real estate market. There are still many questions on people’s minds about what will happen after the election? How our local and federal economies will fair? If the interest rates will continue to be as low as they are? Will there be more foreclosures? Recent local news articles point to resurgence and impressive new statistics:  http://www.mauinews.com/page/content.detail/id/564164/Maui–top-of-the-food-chain-.html?nav=10

What we see at this time is a market that is heating up for a multitude of reasons. We have successfully closed over 45 transactions thus far in 2012 with another 10 currently in escrow/pending sale.   In recent weeks the Fed Set Open-Ended Asset Purchases to Spur Growth; Extending Low Rates Into 2015! While our supply has dwindled and we have seen many properties go under contract, including many with multiple offers, there are still some values out there. Absorption rates for homes and condos both dipped below 10 months at the end of August! http://www.ramaui.com/UserFiles/File/Stats/All-August2012.pdf

Also it is important to note that the Canadian and Australian dollars continue to be strong compared to the US dollar. This generally suggests that our International buyers will continue to be a positive driving force in our real estate market. We are also including some interesting articles on increased direct flights and increased visitor counts and spending that you may wish to review. Here are the links:
