The Secrets to Buying a Vacation Home

Maui's pleasant climate, breathtaking beaches, and tropical scenery have delighted residents and visitors for centuries. Having the right information is crucial to finding the right property and making the right decisions, so browse these tips for buying a vacation home in Maui. Have questions? Contact Patrick Franta at (808) 280-7728.


Consider Your Lifestyle

Do you want to live in a populous area or in a more secluded part on the island? Are you craving a view of the ocean or a golf course? Are you eager for a location closer to shops and restaurants or closer to quiet snorkeling spots? Do you want to buy an existing home or buy a new construction home? Make a list of your ideal home features, views, on-site amenities, and nearby conveniences to find your dream home faster. You can also find vacation homes using these popular Maui home searches.

Consider Your Capital

Depending on your preferred location and the mortgage you choose, you will need to have enough money for the down payment and other upfront costs of purchasing a vacation home. If you want to avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of another property, a 1031 exchange, or tax-deferred property exchange, is one way to invest in your Maui vacation home. Contact Patrick Franta at (808) 280-7728 to learn more about 1031 exchanges.

Consider Property Types

Maui's real estate options include land, ranches, single-family homes, and condominiums. If you plan to purchase a vacation condo and rent it out, research the local rental market and ask a local Realtor about zoning requirements. Contact Patrick Franta at (808) 280-7728 for all of the information you need.

Partner with a Real Estate Expert

If you don't already live full-time in Maui, you may not be familiar with all of the significant details about the real estate market or the purchase process. Patrick Franta is a permanent resident of Maui as well as a local real estate agent, so he can provide you with resources about local communities, the home buying process, utility companies, and more.
