Over the last few years, the community of Spreckelsville has established itself as one of the hottest real estate markets on island. The strength of the market is evidenced by a number of high dollar sales and numerous properties that have sold without ever hitting the MLS. The community has become a popular choice for both Kama’aina and second homeowners. Residents are drawn to the community due to its great beaches, access to world class water sports, the Maui Country Club, proximity to Paia town, and the overall convenience to island amenities. After a scorching year of sales in 2014, we suspected that the 2015 market might have a tough time replicating last year’s volume of transactions. Now that we are over six months into the year, let’s take a look at what has happened in Spreckelsville thus far this year.
The map above shows the location of and information about the four properties that sold in the first half of 2015 as well as the two properties that are actively listed. The four properties sold is a decrease from the seven that were sold during the first half of 2014. Here are a few noteworthy items about the Spreckelsville sales from the first half of the year.
- The four sales consisted of two homes, one Sugar Cove condo and one parcel of land.
- A significant number of sales in Spreckelsville over the last few years have been unlisted properties. This proved to be true in the first half of 2015 as two of the four sales were sold prior to listing.
- The sale of 161 Makahiki set a new high price for a home in the Kai Holu subdivision. The Kai Holu Subdivision consists of 17 agriculturally zoned lots in the middle of the neighborhood along Makahiki Street and Cane Place.
There is going to need to be a significant uptick in activity during the second half of the year for 2015 to come close to matching last year’s 14 total sales. With only two properties on the market currently in Sprecks, I have a tough time foreseeing us making up the difference. You never know though, we have already mentioned how this neighborhood is known for unlisted property sales.
