Asked by Sándor Lau, Eugene, OR Tue Sep 28, 2010

properties Thurs or Fri. I'm an investor from Oregon with family on the island and want to see what the market has to offer. I'm not really looking for vacation property for myself, but an investment with the highest cap rate possible to buy and hold and let it appreciate. I'm looking for a realtor who understands investing and can help me with the work of looking at the market and selecting the properties that meet what I'm looking for.

Help the community by answering this question:



I have seen various methods used foe determining cap rate. Please share the method that use, if you feel so inclined. Many investors are trying cash flow in this challenging market, so it's interesting to see how various people define their "break even" point for investment purposes. I have noticed that our return on investment is generally lower than mainland, so you have search a little harder sometimes.

Good luck and have fun with your search.

Aloha Sandor,

Eugene! I was born and raised there. In fact my sister Kathryn Sampson - a realtor - lives in Junction City.

About Maui: If you are looking to buy in Kahului...I'm not the right agent for you. If you would be interested in South Kihei, then I can share my market knowledge with you. I am currently working with a few investors on the mainland and in Canada that will be purchasing for investment purposes...like yourself.

If you would send me your email I would be more than happy to send you a package - as an example - of what I just sent to my client in Canada. I believe you'll find the information extremely useful.

I hope to hear from you. My direct line is 808-633-1292.

Aloha my name is Martha Hinz from The Wailea Group. I just saw your posting in Trulia.
I have been doing Real Estate for over 10 years. I understand and know our market.
If you are looking to purchase an investment property on Maui and are not interested on buying a vacation rental property you could also look for homes that have ohana or cottages that can create more rental income.
As you know at this time we have a lot REO and Short Sale properties at great prices.
Nobody know when the bottom of the market will be, but if you are planning to purchase a home or condo and keep it for a few years this will be a better way to go.
There are also condos that are selling for very low prices and could give the possibility of possible cash flow.
If you would like more information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (808) 283-3952 or email me at martha@maui.net.
Have a wonderful day.
