Ryan Ward posted this 1,180 Views

What is wrong with builders in this city? The architectural style of the vast majority of new construction homes all look very similar at this price point. This lack of variety, I believe has h...

mikey posted this 7,299 Views

Recently a customer asked me some specific questions about Hawaii's real property tax rates.  Among other things, she was concerned that, upon buying a house here, the assessed value would increase significantly, leading to higher taxes. This customer currently lives in California and she explained how it works there.  When a house is sold, the assessed value automatically adjusts to the sale price.  Real property taxes are assessed at one percent.&n...

Simply put a short sale is when the lender agrees to sell the property for the new appraised value even if you owe more on your mortgage. It helps the lender out by eliminating the need for the expense of foreclosure (about $4,000), maintaining the upkeep on the property, and paying the bills for on-going taxes and insura...
