Palms at Wailea Real Estate Market Overview

Palms at Wailea Real Estate Market Overview

The Palms market has been quiet through the winter, with four 1-bedroom units listed between December and March (2102, 405, 901, and 902). Palms 2102 ($1,225,000), 405 ($1,325,000), 901 ($1,498,000), and 902 ($1,525,000) have drawn plenty of showings, but buyers have not yet pulled the trigger. Time on market ranges from 145 days (2102) to 55 days (405).
There is a screaming demand for Wailea 2-bedroom vacation rentals, and limited inventory to fill that void. Among our management clients (73 units), we have several owners who would like to expand their portfolios and have short-listed the Palms, but only in a 2-bedroom.
Interestingly, between April and August of 2023, eight 2-bedroom units sold. Selling prices ranged from $1,381,000 to $1,950,000, with a median of $1,695,000. Unit 1406 became the highest-priced sale in the history of the property at $1,950,000. With prices soaring at other complexes, the $2M mark would not be out of range for the right 2-bedroom unit.
There are no pending escrows at the property.
