Besides knowing the community and the idiosyncrasies of a particular property, subdivision, or neighborhood, a Realtor can help the buyer or seller avoid unnecessary costs or time drains associated with law suits. Inexperienced buyers and sellers that don't have a professional watching their back are asking for trouble down the road. You could call that penny wise and pound foolish. And thirdly, a Realtor should be an expert negotiator, and can add value to a listing, or get a better price on a purchase, by clearly and concisely helping the other party in the transaction understand why they should pay more for a property or why they should sell a property for your offer price. ... more

It's typically a 2 year "wait" period before you can qualify for a mortgage after a bankruptcy. It's very important for you to find a qualified lender that you trust and the best way to do that is ask people you know for a good referral. Best of luck. ... more

This is a question to direct towards the professional you hired to represent you.
This professional knows what contracts has been signed and the requirements of the state of in which the property is located.

You are making invalid assumptions that will only lead to greater disappointment.
Time to call your REALTOR or your attorney.

Best of success,

I have not seen a lot of sellers giving that option here lately.. most likely as people are re-investing their funds do to an inclining market coupled with low interest rates. There are some loan programs with little to no money down that may be an option for you also.

Kathren Rosales answered:
Typically most lenders will not allow a loan to be a source of down payment for another loan on property. The funds you are using as down payment need to be "seasoned" or sit in your bank account for at least two months per today's lending rules. There are ways to make your current equity work for you. As previously mentioned, call a local lender or myself and we can take a closer look at your situation. Mahalo! ... more

Aloha... I agree with the previous poster that is is BEST to live in an area first to understand the local feel and flavor...however, Maui county has many second home owners who love to come and stay a few weeks to a few months out of the year in this beautiful tropical paradise in the Pacific. I would recommend getting on a good realtor's email list for a specific type of property that you are looking to purchase and then do your homework: study the comps, Google Earth the area, ask questions of the realtor and the local lender you are working with, come and visit so that you can see the unit in its culture: at day, evening and over the weekend. That way you can feel comfortable with the entire transaction and be confident that you are purchasing a great property for you. ... more

Aloha Dsullivan37,

Units at Kanai A Nalu are currently running at $620 per month for maintenance and $803 per month for the lease payment. This complex is a LEASEHOLD Property so you will have to pay a monthly lease fee to the land owner. There are currently 3 active listings in Kanai A Nalu with prices ranging for $289-$345,000. One of the units is a Short Sale. This property is steps from the beach! Allows Short Term Vacation Rentals! Pleas let me know how I can help you!
With Aloha,
Carmen Ferri

515 S. Kihei Rd. is the address for Maui Isana Resort - which is zoned to allow short term rentals. As far as the specific unit that you may have seen, without knowing more details, it would not be possible to answer more definitively.
