Great Ways to See Our Listings While Staying Home

In the last week, county and state government reclassified Realtors as “essential” workers. That means we can now show property. But let’s be honest, not all sellers want to invite buyers into their home right now. Not all buyers want to be going into someone else’s home. Quite frankly, as an agent I haven’t entirely wrapped my head around the idea of showing property. It’s ok to have concerns and to want to stay home.

It is also possible to stay safe at home and still “tour” some of our listings. Between videos and 3D tours, technology makes it a lot easier to see property while you aren’t even wearing pants. Check out videos and 3D tours for our listings below.

707 Puniawa Road, Haiku, HI

Nine acres in a quiet valley bounded by streams that come together at the edge of the property before running into the ocean. Two homes, two pools, an artist’s studio, an orchard, a kitchen garden, an off the grid power system and tremendous privacy. This property blends stunning natural beauty, sustainability and understated luxury. Intrigued? Check out the video tour below.

The barn and some of the 30 acres of pasture land at 1949 West Kuiaha Road

Thirty-nine acres of pristine land with a deluxe barn, a story-book cottage and a small Christmas Tree Farm. Looking for a place for your horses? The property includes thirty acres of grassland with six gated paddocks, a round pen and a tack room.

886 Pakele Road, Wailuku

A restored 1943 Plantation Cottage set in a grove of soaring Coconut Palms right by the ocean’s edge. This place is a feast for the senses with the sounds of the ocean and rustling palm fronds, the smell of salt air and the stunning beauty of the Pacific. Take a 3D tour of the Cottage By the Sea. You can also check out this video for more sights and sounds from the property.

61 South Lanikai

As one of a couple of land listings that we have in our inventory, these lots are something that we could show pretty safely while keeping a healthy social distance. That said, we also realize some of our potential buyers may be staying at home on the mainland. This listing is actually three contiguous two acre lots. The lots have water and ocean views. Check out the video below.

63 S. Lahaole Place Wailuku (Maluhia Country Ranches)

As another parcel of vacant land, this is another property that we could potentially show while practicing social distancing. This lot included 5.68 acres of land, big ocean and Haleakala views, gated access and underground utilities. You will be hard pressed to find this combination of views and land at this price point.

In Person Showings and Other Resources

Contact the Maui Real Estate Team if you have questions on any of the properties above.

We realize that not all properties have good videos or 3D tours. If you see a property that is listed that lacks a tour or the video lacks important detail, let us know. We would be happy to look into the possibility of obtaining video of the property. Needless to say, if we list additional properties during the current pandemic, we will be leaning heavily on 3D tours and or video.

As mentioned at the top of this post, we are permitted to do showings. That said we are doing our best to stay at home. If the seller is amenable, we are willing to do showings under extraordinary circumstances. We will need to follow social distancing protocols throughout the showing. In the interim, we hope the videos and tours above provide a better feel for some of our beautiful listings.
