Above are the flowers which come out at night or early morning.Below are the ripe pink fruits.  We planted a bunch of vines 3 years ago and this year we harvested over 20 fruits, and still a few more to come.  These vines are super easy to grow in Haiku Maui and we're planting more!I slice them in half and then cut the halves into slices with the skin on so they're easy to pick up.  They you just bite the centers and eat the fruit, while discarding the pink peel.  They have a texture sort of like a kiwi fruit - with the tiny black seeds that you eat, but they're sweet and not tart like a kiwi - just soft and sweet with a little crunch of seeds... very refreshing.Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(...

Do you ever use QR codes in your marketing?They can be very useful for buyers to learn more about a listing if they're standing by the sign.For example, if you point your smart phone camera at this QR code it'll take you to a live streaming cam showing a 2 acre vacant lot for sale. How easy is that?!Buyers can check on the view, the weather, the sounds - all done remotely once they save the link.  See a property at different times of the day.  Get to know the area even when you've left the island.Go ahead and save this link if you just want to transport yourself to Maui's north shore - listen to the bird sounds, watch the sunrise and moonrise.  Don't you wish you lived here?320 Hanauana Rd.

No one rings a bell when the market turns. You don't hear the clang like on Wall Street when it's time to stop trading.However, I'm hearing some chimes in the distance.Crash?  Probably not.  Why? Because everyone needs a place to live.However, I am seeing more price reductions than before.  In fact, I rarely saw one in the last few years as sellers were really riding the wave and pushing list prices to the max.Combine that with a teaspoon of rising mortgage interest rates, a cup of congressional election coming up in a few months,  a dash of rising interest rates for investment products as a safe alternative, and just a pinch of canceled escrows, and you have a cake that someone left out in the rain for quite a while..........

Live-cam set up at 320 Hanauana Rd, Haiku Maui HISo this 2 acre lot is for sale and it's hard to see it if you don't live on Maui.  The seller had a brilliant idea to install a live streaming camera from his house next door so potential buyers can appreciate the sunrise and moonrise views over the ocean.  Take a look and let me know what you think...That's the lot for sale just past the banana plants - the grassy open space where you might see a few goats grazing.320 Hanauana is zoned Agricultural and you can raise some farm animals, grow some fruit trees, and live very sustainably, right here on the best island in the world.Can you hear the birds singing?  It's a very quiet location out in the countryside along the road to Hana.  On days with big surf you might even be able to hear the...

My jade vine is flowering for the first time!We planted this tropical jade vine 2 years ago, just as the pandemic was becoming the big news of the day.  It was a skinny little wisp of a vine in a flower pot, wrapped around a stick of bamboo - so frail and delicate that I wondered if it would survive.  Of course, in Haiku Maui it's hard NOT to grow anything, so I was confident it would be okay.We found a home in the ground where it could climb up some mock orange bushes, and waited, and watered, and waited some more.  The tendril climbed into the tree and kept going up and up - grew a few leaves and that was it.  Finally, earlier this month I looked for some flowers, and was pleasantly surprised to find 3 long dangling "flower" strands that I hadn't noticed before.  They're about 15" lon...

Market stats - Maui County - November 2021Compliments of First Hawaii Title - Kihei Maui HIIt's still a crazy hot market for sellers here on Maui.  There's just hardly any inventory, and homes and condos are selling fast.  Vacant land has also been seeing a lot of sales since the pandemic started.  Maui is a great place to get away to, and it will continue this way for a while as far as I can tell.  While it's expensive to buy property here, it's worth it!  Maui County includes the islands of Maui, Lanai and Molokai.Got questions?  Let me know and I'll get you some answers.Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers26 Baldwin Ave, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text:...
