Condos in Honolulu are getting easier to purchase - 07/28/11 10:31 PM
More good news for condo financing. Really good news. Read on…. We can now get you private mortgage insurance for your condo purchase without regard to owner/occupancy. That’s right, it doesn’t matter what the owner occupancy in the building is! So, good riddance FHA, it’s back to conventional financing with as little as 5% down on condos no matter what the occupancy percentage is. This applies to owner occupant loans with Loan to Valua ratios (LTVs) up to 95% and second homes with LTVs up to 90%.

Not just the types of sales like Short Sales, Foreclosures, Pre Foreclosure Sales and REO Properties, to name a few, but the way we do our jobs as Realtors. We can (2 comments)
Neighborhoods on Oahu to Buy Homes - 07/20/11 03:58 PM
Many people have heard of Waikiki and Honolulu and some know where Manoa is, it’s the valley between the mountain and Waikiki Beach, but did you know there is a beautiful little neighborhood called Ualakaa nestled along the hillside of lower Manoa? Did you know there was a neighborhood called Mahinui right off Kaneohe Bay Drive with lovely homes sitting right on little canals that lead out to Kaneohe Bay? The Honolulu MLS System is full of these names that many people have never heard of which is why I usually suggest home buyers start their search in an area by (2 comments)
