After receiving a request from a friend to check around for scarves with Hawaiian print material and preferably with soft colors and soft material, I went on the hunt.  Hmm...looking online and in local stores it was a whopping $30-$60 for A (one) scarf. I needed to find a BUNCH of scarves or else material that one could hem to make scarves and get them to her asap lest she be unable to be 'stylin'". Ah...one material section in a local department store sufficed for a few picks and then I remembered FABRIC MART in Aiea!  I planned to go this morning after setting a few appointments and I finally got out the door at 10:30am. I walked in to Fabric Mart in Aiea an astounding array of materials! Plain ones, silk ones, rayon and cotton and every kind of material you could think of......and ...

Hawaii's Real Estate Market is holding up brilliantly!  In relation to "parts per million", Foreclosures are low compared to other parts of the nation.  Don't scold me if I am wrong, but I believe there were less than 200 foreclosures last month.  We are ranked really low in the nation.  I think FLA CALIF and NEVADA are the leaders. If you will look at my 2008 Forecast, it pretty much covers 2009.  Still the same.  This year will be a 4-6% decline in values and the number of sellers are greater than the number of buyers.  This is all based on what the lead bank and real estate economist say. 2010 is still on target for the market to begin it's slow assent.  NOW is TRULY the window of opportunity if a seller wants to move up or if a buyer is ready.  Example: I have a SMART seller who now...

Today my buyer closed on a townhouse in Aiea.  It was a short sale, listed for $366,000 and she bought it for $300,000.  Price-wise, it was a heck of a good deal!  Three bedrooms, two and a half baths, 1,300 square feet interior and two parking stalls. The place does need cosmetic work though.  The prior owners neglected the property and it basically could use an entire remodel.  The buyer has a contractor lined up and the work will commence shortly. If you haven't been involved in a short sale yet, they can be tricky.  While the owner signs the purchase contract, his bank is actually in control.  The owner's bank sometimes rejects what we feel to be "good" offers. When they decide an offer might be acceptable, the bank's review period is 30-45 days.  If the bank decides to accept, they...

    Keaiwa Heiau (an Ancient Hawaiian Temple) is located at the top of Aiea Heights Drive in the Keaiwa Heiau State Recreation Area. Upon entry into the State Park the Keaiwa Heiau is to the left and you will definitely do a double take at first glance. KEAIWA HEIAU is known as the temple with life. It is believed to be where the 'Kahuna' (priest, minister) practiced the art of healing. The gardens right by the temple were compounded and then given to the patient while praying. It is unknown when this Heiau was built but one source says possibly around the 16th century. Measuring 100 by 160 feet the heiau also has an enclosure that was a halau (large thatched structure) built for the master kahuna (priest) to store the medicinal implements and to train and teach the students.   The Keai...

   Last week I took a small break and went to the Pearlridge Center. About a 10-15 minute drive from Waipio Gentry-Waikele it has everything and anything you could possible think of in their Uptown and Downtown Malls. Picture to the left:  Pearlridge Center is the only mall with a monorail to transport customers from Uptown to Downtown malls. Pearlridge (Shopping) Center is the largest INDOOR shopping mall on Oahu (Honolulu County) and located in Aiea Both sides have plenty of parking (holidays are the exception) and I decided to park on the upper level. I entered the Downtown Mall of Pearlridge Center through Macy's (third floor) Home Section. Of course I have my camera in hand! This is just for those times when there is gorgeous mural to take a shot of. Picture to the left: This palm...

Invesment in residential real estate in Hawaii hasn't always been known for its cashflow.  Typically most people that "invest" are banking on appreciation.  In any event, getting properties to cashflow has been more difficult in the last year or two.  For those of you out there looking for an investment, I have a listing that is the lowest priced home in Aiea at $510,000.  It is currently tenant occupied and the tenants are paying $2500/month.  That alone could carry a good $400,000 ish in debt service.  If someone where to be able to put 20% down, this would pay for itself! It's right up the hill from Pearl Harbor and minutes from Pearl Ridge shopping center!        In addition, this place was completely remodeled in 2007! A 4 bed, 2 bath home @ $510,000! It's a bargain!

Pearl City, Waiau, Waimalu, Pearlridge, Wailuna, and the Aiea neighborhoods are all around the general vacinity and a close hop, skip and a jump to Hickam AFB, Pearl Harbor Navy Base, Camp Smith,Tripler Army Medical Center and Fort Shafter Army Bases. The map to the below shows the majority of military bases around Oahu in Honolulu County.     Ford Island is across the Pearl Harbor waters and can be seen from Blaisdell Park in Waiau (Pearl City). The entrance is along Kamehameha Highway right before the USS Arizona Memorial. Within five miles of each other are the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet and the Pearlridge Kam Swap Meet and they are great places for outdoor shopping for souvenirs, clothing, polynesian style crafts and much more.  Open on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

  Newtown and the Royal Summit communities are side by side 'Ridge Neighbors".  In my last post on  A Bit Above in Wailuna Community - Honolulu Hawaii Relocation I wrote about the Wailuna community on Kaahumanu Street - on the Waiau Ridge. Newtown is right below Wailuna and stretches across to Kaalele Street to the Royal Summit Community. The Royal Summit community have all custom built homes that were built to the owners delight. They are all zoned for ONE residential home on each lot and have been building from the 1980's. The Newtown Community is an older community and they started building in the early 1970's.   I stopped midway up Kaahele Street after entering the Royal Summit Community and had to stop and take a picture of the beautiful spring Bouganvilia flower blooms. What wond...
