Now is the time to buy a second home on Maui

By Staff | Jul 8, 2010

Napili Point C-38, a two-bedroom, two-bath unit, is a great opportunity at $795,000 LH.

National statistics show that purchases of second homes are on the rise after a dismal 2009. Baby Boomers are seeing opportunities to make their dreams come true at lower prices while low interest rates still are available.

In some recreational areas, purchases of second homes are up 12 percent over a year ago. West Maui is a great place to own a second home. If you have been sitting on the fence considering the purchase of a second home, now may be the time to hop off that fence and sign up. There is ample inventory and sellers are motivated.

Napili Point is a great location for you to purchase a second home. Direct oceanfront units provide year-round sunset views. “Turtle Town” is directly below Napili Point, which makes for interesting people and turtle watching. While sitting on the lanai of C-38 recently, we watched three large turtles swim between excited snorkelers enjoying the turquoise blue waters of the bay. Cooling breezes came through the front screen door. African Tulip trees in full bloom created a contrast to the blue waters as Molokai and Lanai floated on the distant horizon. This would truly be an ideal second home for the person who wants a Maui home.

Napili Point II C-38 is a two-bedroom, two-bath unit of 955 square feet. Napili Point II is 60 percent fee simple, and the owners are paying for the fee purchase on a monthly basis that will be completed in 2015. Napili Point II sits on 1.92 acres of land. There is an active vacation rental program onsite that provides the owners with an opportunity to rent their units when not in residence. C-38 is tastefully furnished and shows pride of ownership with a Hawaiian theme. Facing the ocean and the pool, C-38 is convenient to amenities and parking.
