Getting a real estate in Hawaii

I certainly am doing well with what I have now that I have my own business and someday I plan to start owning property. I’ve always dreamed of a nice home in Hawaii, where I can settle down with wife and kids. Somewhere very scenic will be nice. After all, investing in Hawaii real estate will certainly be a good idea in the long run. While looking for information regarding real estate in Hawaii, I came across this useful information resource which gives you not only this, but more.

This online home finder website allows you to not only navigate information regarding available homes and condominiums for sale each day across the islands of Hawaii, it also gives you specific information of each Hawaiian island such as Oahu Real estate and Kauai real estate without any issues. The site even includes a helpful glossary of real estate terms and a link to financing your new Hawaiian home if you are thinking of purchasing it but do not know where to apply for a loan. In short, this is something which not many sites possess and certainly this is a useful tool for those looking to buy property on Hawaii.

    1. I am planning on going to Hawaii Pacific university or U. of Hawaii pretty soon and I was wondering if it was a better idea to buy my own house on Sunset because I’m an avid surfer and I want to surf Pipe and Sunset or get an apartment in Honolulu closer to the school……I know that beachfront houses are expensive. I’m spending $20,000+ on school tuition(minus housing b/c I don’t want to live on campus) and my budget for where I’m going to live ranges from $500,000-$1 mil.
      No, I’m just telling you my budget so you can tell me whether I’m able to buy a beachfront house or if it’s a better idea to get a house that’s less expensive and more inland.

    2. I live in a home that we are presently renting, the lease had a clause that we were to be given 48 hours notice, the real estate agency agreed and even put in the list ting “occupied, do not disturb tenents. 48 hour notice needed”.
      We have come home 2x and found the house disturbed, not even a business card. The first time the sliding glass door was left open facing the street, with a screen door between our 2 dogs and the outside. Today we came home to the TV being on, both laptops open (screens up) and items moved off chairs as if they sat down. The Realtor lives on another island, Maui, maintains an office in Pahoa, on the Big Island of Hawaii about 10 miles away, he insists he has this electronic box on the utility door “only a select few have access to” per the Realtor. I feel there is a key to the house floating around one of the real estate offices and it’s being used to get in our house without having to set up an appointment. Any legal leg to stand on? Is the listing agency responsible if it comes out that they had a key floating around?
      Well, the lawyer is v-e-r-y interested in all the details and I’m to fax here over the lease, contact info for all parties and she’s sending letters to all. Go PrePaid Legal!!!!!!

    3. My husband and I are in the early planning stages for a big milestone wedding anniversary. We initially decided on a cruise to Hawaii. Now he is waffling. He thinks Hawaii will be too “touristy”. Well, it probably is, but I’m there for the beautiful scenery. Anyway, he responds best to visual simulation, so is there a movie (drama or comedy) that is filmed in Hawaii that casts it in a very beautiful light. I need to make my husband want to go to Hawaii again. Thank you in advance.

    4. I am 25 years old. One year on my resume, as an internal auditor, with heavy international travel, and a Masters in Accountancy. I hate accounting-I pursued my degree to get some money sense. I would like to run my own show one day. I took a job inland. When I started working, I planned on working for a year or two and then travelling. I have shelved the travel until I am financially independent, plus the fact that I have been to 6 countries in the last year for work. I still really want to go to Hawaii to surf. I know I am young enough, and in shape to go surf the big waves and fear that too much more time away from the water will take a serious toll on my surfing. I live in a growing metropolitan area, with a great potential to invest in real estate. I know the area will still be growing in a year.I am caught between surfing and starting to invest in real estate. I maxxed my Roth for the year. I would work almost any job to keep my current money. I have a free couch to stay on in HI.

    5. I’ve been to Israel in July and the heat is unbearable.
      You’d think that God would know that and make sure his chosen people got the best real estate on Earth like a tropical paradise.

    6. I live in rural Hawaii and a good portion of houses are bought by tourist who decide to relocate here. I want to know what I should be asking my agent to do to get my house out there? I need exposure… well my house does.

    7. Im moving to oahu, hawaii to attend hawaii pacific university. What neighborhoods should i start looking at apartments in? Id like no longer than a 20-25 minute drive. Also a bonus if you include neighborhoods/areas which are between hpu and u of hawaii. Im a mainlander and know nothing of the area. Also would prefer if the areas are not city center, like honolulu.

    8. Long story short, I was given real estate property about 10 years ago by my father and now I can’t handle the property taxes. In any case, I have 3 sisters and 3 brothers – actually they are step-brothers/sisters. I live in another state then where the property is located (Hawaii).

      I have my own property and the last thing I want to get caught up in is a family squabble. My father gave me another piece of property where I am now renting the house for the past few years. I’ll keep that one, but I really want to pass the other property to my siblings and not have to deal with it ever. (The upkeep, the taxes, the insurance, etc.)

      I have heard of using a quit claim deed, but I head it may not hold up in court. How do I pass this property to them in an easy, no hassle, low-cost, less paper kind of way?

      Side info: There are no liens on the property – it is paid off – free and clear.

      Thank you to all who can help me with this question.

    10. I have a good opportunity to work in Maui selling timeshares and I do not want this to prevent me from becoming licensed which is my first step. If this is a problem please let me know if there is any way around it. Thanks again

      No, I’m just telling you my budget so you can tell me whether I’m able to buy a beachfront house or if it’s a better idea to get a house that’s less expensive and more inland.

    14. When I first moved here realestate prices were going up so fast and buyers were putting in bids higher than the value just to get a home. Now prices are going down and more steady, there are a lot of homes (townhouses, condos) for sale now and they are staying on the market longer. Even though interest when up a bit, would this be a good time to invest?

    15. I want to know about Hawaii’s geography, their climate, economy, traditions, and even a little bit of it’s history. I want this to tie into getting a house. I prefer to know Information exclusively for Honolulu, Hawaii, but any of the islands or sectors within Hawaii’s geography is cool. Any Information that i can receive, concerning such would be grand. If possible i would also like Information on environmental factors, and housing styles. I have tried to look on the internet for such, but it seems to be semi difficult. When I type in something concerning housing, it gives me real estate. even if someone can tell me where i can find the Information that I am looking for that would be grand.

    16. I moved back home to Hawaii (for financial reasons mostly), and my dad put me in charge of taking care of one his real estate listings. I mowed the lawn the other day, and now, most of the lawn is green, but there are all these patchs of yellow and brown grass. I’ve never had to take care of a lawn before, I don’t really know how to fix this. My dad is really depending on me to keep this place looking nice, I’m trying to just water everything as much as I can, but I’m not really seeing decent results. Hawaii has plenty of sunlight, that’s not an issue, but how can I fix the patches and make this place look green like a golf course? Does Miracle Grow have something? Is there a certain time in the day I should water the place?

    17. I really want to move to Hawaii. So any beneficial advice I can get I appretiate it. I know the cost of living is expensive, but so is NY without the great weather. How is the job industury I hear it’s tough. I have real estate experience would it be hard to find a job there in that type of field. However, I do not want to be a Realtor there.

    18. My husband and I are planning on a vacation to Hawaii. We live in Pittsburgh I have been looking at flights and they are long hours. How days should i take?? It looks like u need one day just to travel

    19. omgosh i am going to hawaii in december i am so excited! anyone else going or have been wats to do there SHOP! lay and get a tan at the beaches! wat should i pack shorts tanktops? flip flops 2 piece bathing suit ?

    20. I’ve been to Israel in July and the heat is unbearable.

    21. I live in Hawaii… I was laid off from my job many months ago. With the way the economy has been and evevrything I’ve not been able to find a new job…

      I’ve decided to try my hand as a Real Estate Agent. I’ve passed all my tests for that, and I’ve got a company that will be signing me as an agent next week, but what will happen with my Unemployment? Will I be able to continue to get it while i’m getting clients, or will it stop as soon as I sign with the real estate company?

      This is in the state of Hawaii btw…

      Thanks!
      Ok, the first answer asked if I’d be a hired employee or a contractor. I would be a 1099 Contractor. They will not be paying me a salery at all, only commisions…

      About the chance of making real good money, I know.. I’m going into this with my eye’s open and know i’ll be working all hours of the day and night and wont be making that 100k for many years, if ever… I’ll be happy if I make 40k a year by next year, and if I can keep that ammount coming in, i’ll be happy doing it!

    22. I prefer somewhere quiet, and would prefer somewhere that train horns don’t blow, kids don’t play in the street, neighbors don’t blast their stereos or rev their engines, or play their tvs at top volume. I currently live somewhere in hawaii where kids scream up and down the parking areas, idiots blast their stereos from 6am to 2am in the morning, we apparently have several mechanic-wannabes who tinker and rev engines during all hours of the day, and several people who play the game, ‘who can be the loudest’. So anywhere not like that is heaven to me. Any suggestions?

    23. I am moving to San Antonio for college and need a decent job. Do you know of any places I can apply to that aren’t fast food? I’m done with that department.

    24. I’m looking to purchase a property in Hawaii and want to know which island offers the cheapest property costs. I’m looking for something near or on the beach. Not necessarily looking to be in a big city.
