Buying raw land in Hawaii - this is a must read. Kimi Nagatoshi knows land sales in Hawaii first hand. She has met with the archaeological experts and been through the hoops personally. Worth the read if you are buying or even if you already own.

A lot went into the research from some pretty trusted names. I believe it is always worth reading, but encourage you to for your own opinion from these sources and others. 
The interest rate you pay on your home mortgage has a direct impact on your monthly payment. The higher the rate the greater the payment will be. That is why it is important to look at where rates are headed when deciding to buy now or wait until next year. Below is a chart created using Fred

Homes in Hawaii for under $400,000 - I think this one catches my eye the most.

Home sales are not collapsing, in fact Kailua Kona home sales are mirroring the national numbers, almost exactly. 
The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) just released their Existing Home Sales report and some have taken the results and ran with headlines like: “Existing home sales collapse in January despite low mortgage rates”. Let’s take a closer look at what the report really shows. There is

A far more accurate way to search for your dream home in Hawaii. Daily updates, accurate to your search parameters and comes directly from my MLS, it is not a 3rd party system

Introduction

Lance started his successful local real estate career in Kailua-Kona in 2004 after a lengthy sales and management career in Las Vegas, Honolulu and New York City. He specializes in working with long distance clients, utilizing technology such as videos on YouTube, Facetime on iPhones, and Skype in order to show his clients “real time” video of the homes they are interested in purchasing from afar. He also works with international investors knowing the technicalities of foreign "signings' (at consulates) money transfers and special real estate taxes. He utilizes social media and digital marketing in the marketing of properties and blogs consistently about the housing market.

 Lance also has become an expert in short sales. His experience in dealing/negotiating with the banks has helped him personally close over 50 short sales, many of them "Investor" owned property, and on several occasions, not only get any deficiency waived, but his clients have received up to $30,000 in "cooperation" money.

 Personally, Lance enjoys riding his motorcycle after a racing career helped shape his competitive nature. He also likes spending time with his family, camping, fishing and traveling.

Lance is a supportive, knowledgeable, and ambitious team member passionately committed to integrity and compassion in every interaction with his clients and fellow Realtors. Through his innovative and aggressive approach to real estate he assists his clients in achieving their real estate goals.

You may wonder why I gave an almost 100 year old restaurant a 5 star? There is more to a 5 star than most think. To me it is an experience you don't find everyday, something different, something that gives you that "feel good" feeling. This is one of them. Old, rustic, menu on the wall, served family style, friendly place. They are world renowned for their Pork Chops, but to me, my favorite, the Liver and Onions with bacon on top - awesome! Its about 13 miles outside of Kona, on your way to Volcano, or City of Refuge, plane it where you can have a lunch or dinner, its worth it.

I recently had about $3,000 worth of paint work performed on my 2011 Explorer. As always the service is the best on the island. As a previous service manager at new car dealerships here on the big island I would regularly send out work to several local body shops, it didn't take me long to figure out for my all my high end vehicles were sent to Auto Body Hawaii exclusively. Thank you again for outstanding service.

I would rate it a 5 star, but that might confuse people. I love this place as my favorite hidden jewel, great fish in chips, cold beer. How do I put this in a nice way, its not the Four Seasons, but is has more character than they do. There, I said it in a nice way

Always professional, I have used them 3 times now, scheduling my 4th - all for different things, so dont worry. Guys are reasonably on time, do excellent work, and clean up after themselves. As a REALTOR here, I sometimes have small simple jobs. and sometimes complex hard ones, either way , they are always good

What great place, oceanfront, home of the Mai Tai festival, home of Body Gloves 60th birthday party, and they serve up some good food. On our last visit, Henry Kapono was playing, Brad Tiki Shark Parker (the artist) was there signing his new mugs highly recommend, and see if they still make the "Creature Mai Tai"
