You may want to consider the condition your lots are in,. especially if you do not live here in the area - MANY lots here in Nanawale Estates are going to need a lot of heavy-duty clearing work. Hurricane Iselle brought down hundreds of albezia trees ranging from 60 to 120 feet tall. Most are twisted in two around nid-height, plus, since the lava shield prevents deep roots, the trees are lying over Nanawaleon their sides with root masses 20-30 feet in diameter sticking up. Also, there are lots of holes in the ground, making it easy for workers to trip into and possibly beak a leg. If you do have tree work done be sure your tree copmany is bonded. All this, and I am assuming you are aware of the lava flow we are preparing for - the USGS predictions are that it will miss our neighborhood by at least half a mile, but if the lava continues to flow it will block the only access road into this area - and eventually may block the two alternate gravel roads that the county is working on.

Guess this is a long way around to say this is probably not a good time to sell (or buy) in the Lower Puna area if you don't have to. Pay your property taxes and wait until things stabilizer here.

In regards to your question about long term rentals in or near Pahoa the answer is an unqualified YES!!! as long as your are referring to property in Hawaii. Pahoa is located on the Island of Hawaii in the district of Puna and prices on homes, land and rentals are some of the lowest in the Hawaiian Islands. Puna is the fastest growing area in the Hawaiian Islands due to this fact. Big island has lot of inventory so if you are looking for great prices, this is an area you want to look at. If there is anything else I can help you with please give me a call or email me directly.
