real estate: Hokulia Resort Community Sold, New lots to be available soon - 01/08/13 11:25 AM
According to my resources, Hokulia closed escrow on December 28, 2012, opening up the ability to start sales again, initially there will be about 15 lots coming on the market and what they say is, Kukio and Hualalai, well those will be left for the millionaires, and Hokulia ---- for the Billionaires. Think about it, in Kukio, their HOA fees jumping well into the $50,000 a year range, and Hokulia maintaining the $12-15,000 a year range, that’s how the Billionaires made it out of the Millionaire club. Another benefit for Hokulia owners, there are no lots under 1 acre - (0 comments)

real estate: PMI and Your Short Sale Options - Negotiate Everything! - 05/16/12 08:13 AM
PMI – or - Private Mortgage Insurance , A little background first, Most of us know that if we borrowed more than 80% of the value of our home, we had to take out Private Mortgage Insurance or PMI.
