Everyone knows that buying your next home is a huge commitment. When starting off on your journey to invest in a vacation home or to buy your first home, there’s a lot to study, research and understand. At times it can seem overwhelming but with the right research you are sure to feel confident in your investment. And of course we all want to get the best bang for our buck so that’s why it’s important to see whether or not you are paying the right price for your home. If owning a home in Hawaii has caught your attention lately and you’re wondering if you can do it, then you’ll be happy to know that Maui has some of the best mortgage rates in all of Hawaii.

According to a recent report conducted by SmartAsset, a web-based financial technology company, Maui is among the top counties in the state for mortgage approval. The study ranked counties across America by assessing the ratio of total mortgage applications to mortgage approval rates and in Hawaii, Maui came in second behind Oahu. In third place came Big Island and Kauai County ranks fourth with Kalawao County on Molokai coming in last. That’s great news for all you new home buyers. According to the report, Maui County has a 59.81 percent loan funding rate.

So if that doesn’t help you feel better about your next home purchase then I don’t know what will. If you’re looking for a new home in Maui and haven’t found the right fit, then please take some time to explore my website. Whether you’re looking for an oceanfront home, oceanfront land, or an oceanfront condo, you can find all of that and more on here. With decades of experience in real estate here on Maui, I can help you meet all you Maui real estate needs. As a past honoree of the top 100 realtors in Hawaii by Hawaii Business “Who’s Who in Hawaii Real Estate,” I continue to hold my standards high so that I may deliver the best service possible to future home owners such as yourself.
