Sale volume and prices for homes sold on Maui last month were mostly higher, according to the Realtors Association of Maui.
The trade association recently reported that the biggest change was a 32 percent jump in the median sale price for condominiums, to $528,650 in November from $399,500 a year earlier.
That jump was in part due to fewer homes at the lower end of the market selling. The median price is a point at which half of the sales were for a higher price and half for a lower price.
