How much more does a vacation condo cost?

The short answer is that you will pay on average between 40% to 60% more for a condo that allows vacation rental use. As you can see from the chart in this section, the average sales price in 2022 for a vacation condo on Maui was $1,299,183 which is 44.29% more than the price for a regular (long term use) condo which was $900,342 in 2022.

The price difference will vary significantly depending on the size of the unit. For example, the price for 3 bedroom vacation condos has risen significantly in the last two years due to high demand for that lager style of unit. As a result, the average sales price for a 3 bedroom vacation condo was $4,265,337 in 2022 which is 190% above the price for a regular 3br condo (2022 average was $1,467,575).
