I'm sure that it's really important to look good to get better results. When you meet new people (new clients) you need to look beautiful, stylish and modern. Sport activities can be really helpful not only to look but to feel great. Fitness has become much more available than it was before for me because of limits of time – I’m a professional specialist and it is not surprising that I’m living in non-stop tempo from day to day. I’m creative person and sometimes an idea comes to me when I’m flying somewhere by my job. In this case I use my iphone which is very convenient to make some notes and scratches for the future article. I like my compact iphone for one more feature - iphone pedometer, the program which helps me to define the burden and to count calories which I’ve burnt and steps...

I’m sure that the final price that you sell a house for depends 90% on the value of the home, the city and state price dynamics and other economic and financial factors. But 10% of the price depends on the psychological factors. If buyer likes the realtor and trusts him or her, the price can be increased by 2-3%. The buyer will agree to it as it’s so pleasant to give a present to such a good guy. So, it can be a good idea to make friends with your potential home buyer. Share some useful (or maybe even insider) info (the easiest route to school to avoid traffic jams or discount coupon to your favorite Gucci clothing store)   The second factor depends on buyer’s awareness that nobody tries to cheap him. If he realizes that there is a difference between the descriptions and the photos of h...

I just received information that the next sales event for the Beach Villas at Ko Olina will be held in May of 2010. The previous sales event in September resulted in the successful sale of 66 of the remaining 120 villas which leaves a balance of 54 villas that will be made available for purchase. So only around 20% of the units remain for the May sales event. Reservations are taken in a priority order so quick action on your part will make a difference. If you have an interest, please contact me directly by email or phone ASAP through the links on the right side of the screen so that we can discuss. There is still a limited opportunity to take advantage of greatly reduced prices and there is no obligation to purchase. There is also no penalty if you change your mind. See below for how t...

In our 3rd part in a series of Where to Find Oceanfront Condos on Oahu, we leave Waikiki and head clockwise all the way to Ko Olina before we run into more oceanfront condos. A number of harbors take up a good portion of prime real estate along the way... Ko Olina is a resort along Oahu's leeward or west shore. The climate is very similar to the resorts on the western shores of outer islands like Maui's Kaanapali and the Kona side of the Big Island. It is also a relatively new resort and kind of reminds me of what Kaanapali was like when I was a kid there in the early '80's... There's a number of newer construction condo projects there, however only 2 oceanfront complexes: Kai Lani (built by Armstrong builders in 2003) and The Beach Villas at Ko Olina (Recently built by Centex). Althoug...

The Beach Villas at Ko Olina on Oahu Hawaii held their clearance sale on their luxury condo's this past weekend on September 19th & 20th. This was the real estate sales event where the condo prices were drastically reduced with the goal of selling all of the remaining 114 condos/villas (or about half of the project) over two days. The sale was very successful with around 78 out of the 114 villas sold. You still have a second chance with around 26 villas remaining. If your interested, click the Call Me or Email Me links to the right > and we can discuss the opportunity. Some of the villas sold for as low as in the high $500's which is an amazing price when you figure the original starting prices at the project were around $1.8m. This is an almost four for the price of one deal. It remain...

  NEW!!FHA HUD Preforeclosure Sales Program   Basically, the definition of the short sale process is when the lender of a property allows the property to be sold for less than the amount due on the mortgage loan(s) secured by that property. With real estate values declining, it is more and more common for properties to worth less than the debt against them. There are benefits for all parties involved. A short sale process is that it allows the seller to avoid the credit report damage associated with a foreclosure. A foreclosure can stay on your credit report for up to 10 years and can take an emotional and financial toll on you and your family. For the lender, it provides an orderly and predictable strategy without the additional time and expense of a foreclosure action. But the pitfall...

Are you thinking about purchasing a villa at the Beach Villas at Ko Olina at the Final Sales Event in September, 2009? Should you buy? Here is the latest scoop. Last week in Federal Court (August 13th, 2009), the Master Developer of the Ko Olina Resort, Jeff Stone lost his motion to stop Centex, the developer of the Beach Villas at Ko Olina from recharcterizing the limited common areas of our property into common areas. This allows Centex to take the areas such as the pools, grounds parking lots, etc. and turn these areas over to the homeowners via our homeowners association. This is through the process of converting the limited common elements into common elements. The judge ruled that Centex was within their right to proceed with the change, based on the wording of the contract signed...

             Whether you are new to this string on the Beach Villas at Ko Olina or have been following it since December... welcome! In either event, it might be a good time for a review of that last year. As is the custom, if you want to read the full details, links to the earlier articles are at the end of this. When we began this story, the Villas were about half sold and were being offered with some slight price reductions, but were essentially priced close to the prices that the first 127 units had sold for. That was December 2008.                    In January 2009, Centex Destination Properties, the Developer of the Beach Villas at Ko Olina announced that they were going to have a Final sale event on June 5th and 6th with plans to sell the 120 remaining units at discounts rangin...

Reservations now being considered without $50,000 initial deposit!!!If I have ever dreamed of being a Developer, that thought is now officially out of my head. I have been more involved with this project than any other in my career and am now in full understanding of the risks that a developer takes. It's easy to think of how great it would be if everything goes great, but the vulnerability to outside forces can not be understated. This project has experienced many adverse conditions. An economic downturn of near biblical proportions, deterioration of market values, declines in the tourist industry, changing lender guidelines and Home Owner Association (HOA) issues have all taken their toll on the event. And yet, it seemed that with a 7 week postponement, the event was still going to be...
