Maui land sales – 100 acres and larger parcels sold and for sale

Kula Maui ranch lands


Sold since 2016 – vacant land – Maui Hawaii

Looking at the history of large land sales on Maui, it would appear that they are picking up over the most recent 5 years.  I’m talking about lots over 100 acres, whether or not it’s all usable ground.  So far this year there have already been 3 closed sales, which is more than the normal 2 per year.  Often the land will be steep, remote, rugged, or otherwise less attractive to the average buyer.  Or it could be nicely developed ranch lands with lots of improvements.  Either way, large parcels have the possibility of being subdivided, and offer many possibilities for development or a secure estate.

Since January 2016 there have been 12 closed sales of vacant land ranging from 115 acres to 3,285 acres.  Here are some of the highlights:

  • 12 sales priced between $300,000 – $14,000,000
  • average sale price was $4,155,811.  Median sale price was $2,719,870
