Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Lahaina. Fully 15.98% 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.
