Aloha! Welcome to the sixteenth edition of "The Coconut Chronicles" presented by Billy and Pete Jalbert, Realtors for the Maui Real Estate Team in Paia, Maui. For our 16th Coconut Chronicles our Billy and Pete's Picks section looks at Kula Properties. We also have an article on preparing your homes for sale. We have compiled a series of tips that might get your home sale and to keep it in escrow when it is under contract. Of course, we also have the usual sections including Taste of the Tropics, the Cultural Calendar and this month's real estate statistics.

Billy and Pete's Picks: Kula Properties

While the overall real estate market in Maui is slowing, Kula has been one area that has been a little more resilient. As I joked in a recent blog piece, there may be something of an "Oprah Effect." In the month of June, "O" magazine published an article on Oprah's new home in Kula. While Kula has a famous new part time resident, I don't think there is any threat of Kula being a new Malibu or South Beach. Oprah is just like a lot of other full and part time residents who were drawn to the area for its country charm, spectacular views and ideal climate.

Kula Cottage

The cottage feels spacious and has a gourmet kitchen with Viking Stove and Gourmet Kitchen. The property is well landscaped with tropicals and fruit trees. There are architect approved plans for a main house that matches the cottages plantation style and takes advantage of the building sites spectacular views. This great opportunity is listed by Aina Maui Properties for $735,000. The Maui Real Estate Team may represent you as buyer's agents.
