This is a continuation of my article series about turnover rate for Kihei condos.
Why should I buy a Kihei condo with a low turnover rate?
As I described in my turnover rate primer article, a low turnover rate can suggest that owners are happy with their investment in the community and tend to hold onto their units for a longer period of time. Buying a condo at a complex with a low turnover rate does not guarantee that it will be perfect for you but it does mean that you’re investing in a condo where other owners have shown a higher degree of satisfaction.
Low turnover rate can signal that the condo has…
- Desirable location and/or good amenities
- Nice unit features
- Good rental performance
- Features that make it appealing for personal use
Another point to consider: some of the complexes on the list below have significantly higher price points which means owners made a larger investment with their purchase. For this reason, owners might have more of a long term commitment and outlook for their unit.
Some of the condos on the list below have great on-site rental programs which offer added convenience for owners.
