In these areas you mentioned, you'll find mostly single family homes that will be much larger in sq.ft
and much more than the 2mil. if it's beachfront. I would like to find out more specifics on your client's preferences, needs, and I'm sure I can be of assistance to you. Please contact me anytime.

Aloha Bill,

The market peaked probably somewhere between April and November of 2006.
If you saw increases in 2007, those were most likely isolated. Land prices tend to trail, so they go up last. ... more

Kimo Smigielski answered:
The question should also be, if they remove the mortgage interest deduction will you be ready to buy? It has been a Buyer's market because of low interest rates but December 31st could determine whether Buyers will still be so readily available when a key benefit to home ownership could be taken away or severely weakened.

Two weeks to see what happens...

Hi Uemurajo,

I'm not sure I understand your question, do you want to know how to market your home, how to prepare your home for sale or if you can put your home up for sale using Trulia. Give me a little
more information on what your goal is and I can give you advice on how to move forward.

Aloha,

Rodney,

Aloha Mike,

This property is leasehold. That means you don't own the land, you lease it.
The lease expires in 2026, so you would give up the property at that time.
It can be owner or tenant occupied. Maintenance fees are $541/month.

Easy - if you want to get the owner's name of a property just look up the tax record. http://hononlulupropertytax.com

Actually, in comparison to the mainland property tax, clients from abroad have told me that Hawaii property tax is lower.

Aloha Gerime,

I will assume you are speaking of Kuhio Ave located in Wainiha on the north shore of Kauai. There is only one condo resort past Princeville going north - and that is the Hanalei Colony Resort.

All of the current listings are 2/2 or 2/1.5. They range in asking price from $395K to $725K. The closest shopping is in Hanalei which is approximately 6 miles away. The Mediterranean Gourmet is adjacent to the condo resort. The Hanalie Colony Resort is a beachfront resort.

If you have further questions please contact me.

Hi Cam123,

Safe is a relative question? This property is in a good neighborhood with good schools, close to everything. Would you like to go see the property in person? Please advise.

Kakaako is very close to Waikiki and many of the newer high-rises have some amazing amenities. Hokua, Koolani and Moana Pacific all have wonderful amenities.

Aloha,
Since you need a pet friendly building you are limiting your choices quite a bit. There are many more questions that must be asked to decide which buildings I will show you.


Please call me asap.
2 bed 2 bath w parking, and pet friendly. My favorite building for you would be about $450k-$550k depending on condition and floor/views and of course what you qualify for.

Please let me know what kinds if pets and their sizes as this is a major consideration for what building will allow you to have pets.

Aloha

Derek Kamm answered:
No, it would be wise to take a few minutes with a realtor of your choice over the phone. To answer your question directly, as Yumi mentioned most are not, although once you get a better feel for the market you'll start to instinctually know because leasehold is considerably less to purchase. For most it is not the right choice. Every listing should indicate whether or not it is fee simple or leasehold, if not a realtor such as myself or Yumi can create customized search parameters for you with automated updates, one parameter addresses fee simple/leasehold. Excellent question. I can be reached at 808-228-5486. ... more

Aloha Km,

At the close of escrow you turn over the keys to the new owner and the property is normally vacant.
From the time of the offer to closing is typically 45-60 days. Does that answer your question?

Zohra Abuzalaf answered:
I usually tell my clients if they're buying right now, not to expect an appreciation in the next 4 to 5 years. Prices in Honolulu have stabilized. There's going to be some slight ups and downs depending on the months. Good location and low inventory tend to cause the price to increase but nothing like before. It's just too difficult to make any predictions for any given area.
here's a link that may help you see some details on the market by neighborhood.
