Now that we already into our third month of 2018, we thought it was a good time to provide updates on some of our core markets. The first one we wanted to take on is the Spreckelsville Neighborhood on Maui’s North Shore. The neighborhood is home to our broker/owner Billy and agent Martin Lenny. Our office also has a home listed on the Maui Country Club golf course. Sprecks is never a high sales volume neighborhood, but it has seen strong demand and steady price increases over the last seven or eight years. Residents are attracted to the sense of community, convenience and access to great beaches and water sports. This post takes a look at market activity during the last six months of 2017 and the first two months of 2018.
The map above shows the location of properties that sold over the last eight months (red pins) as well as the current inventory (green pins). You can click on individual pins for more information on the respective properties.
There have been six sales since July 1, 2017 in Spreckelsville including 5 homes and one land sale. Here are some of the notable numbers from the sales.
- The high sale over the last eight months was $16,000,000 for an oceanfront residential condo on Stable Road. The large home included 2.882 acres of limited common element including 500 linear feet of beachfront.
- The same buyer bought an adjoining unit of the residential condominium for $5,999,999. That was a smaller 1,180 square foot home on .4381 acres of beachfront limited common element.
- In addition to the two residential condos, there was a third oceanfront home that sold. The three oceanfront sales last year were the most we have seen in the neighborhood since the four sales in 2014.
- The one transaction thus far for 2018 was a land sale. It was a bulk sale of three lots in the E Papae Ka Puko’ Ae subdivision. That subdivision is seeing some significant changes with three houses under construction currently and a fourth set to start construction soon. If all of the new owners of the recently sold lots plan to build in the near future, there will only be a handful of vacant lots remaining in Spreckelsville.
- The six sales were spread throughout Spreckeslville with two closings on Stable Road, the aforementioned E Papae Ka Puko’ Ae subdivision land sale, the sale in Old Sprecks on Laulea and two sales in the Sprecks V subdivision.
- Two of the six properties that sold in the last eight months were unlisted. All of the properties that closed in the first half of 2017 were unlisted. During this market cycle, Sprecks has become a neighborhood where a significant number of properties are sold before being listed.
I would anticipate that the rest of 2018 will see a relatively small number of sales in the neighborhood due to the constraints of limited inventory. I surmise that unlisted properties may continue to augment the current inventory to bolster sales numbers. The limited supply is also likely to provide upward pressure on neighborhood prices.
