What does it cost to buy a home in Paia and Kuau Maui?

This little beach town is so hip and cool, that everyone wants to have a home here.  But can you afford it?  What do homes sell for in these neighborhoods?  The low priced inventory usually sells quickly due to strong demand.  By low priced I guess I mean anything under $800,000.  These are the current residential sales in the north shore towns of Paia and Kuau, for 2019 year to date – (January 1 to March 21).
