Full story: Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Maui single-family home prices plunged in April to their lowest level since 2003 and condominium prices fell to near a five-year low as buyers continued to work down excess inventory in the weak real estate market.

All great figures. How about saying how many homes are NOT selling but are on the compared to a year and two years ago. I am glad the mouthpiece for the real estate sellers thinks the market is near the bottom. How about buying a few of those bargain units yourself if you are so sure Terry. They are bound to go up in value if your "guess" is correct.

So , the value is going down. Too bad the property taxes can't do the same.

Tell Mr Tolman,that the downward slide in home prices have just begun......Where are the buyers?.....Who has money? Check out Maui's unemployment rate,jobless rate and foreclosures.These folks all have mortgages and maxed out credit cards.3 more years of downside.If we're lucky!

Maybe if they let the Hawaii Superferry go to Maui again the real estate values will go up. Hee, hee!

The bottom of the market is a 5-year bottom. What is the bottom of the new bottom? 10-year? 20-year?or 30-year? The realors don't make sense.

The tax rate is 4.85 for improved residential in Maui, 2.00 if you are an owner. We'll see if the valuation drops.
