There is also a lot of housing in Lahaina built between 1940-1969 ( 25.23%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 18.95%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Lahaina. Fully 17.15% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Lahaina homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Lahaina real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
