hawaii: Mexico Travel Advisory makes Hawaii a Great Vacation Choice - 03/15/10 06:38 AM

The State Department issued a travel advisory yesterday after three Americans were killed in the cross fire of drug violence. As spring breakers flock to Mexico, it is nice to know that in Hawaii, crime is at the lowest point ever recorded.
There is safety in vacationing and owning property in Hawaii, our 50th US State. We ourselves, looked at purchasing vacation property in Baja, Mexico and I am really glad that we purchased at the Beach Villas at Ko Olina instead. (Due to the smarts of my wife, more-so than myself I must add.)
According to the New York Times, at least … (0 comments)

hawaii: Buyers Sue Trump Waikiki Condo/Hotel Developer, Irongate, (I'm glad the Beach Villas at Ko Olina) are #1! - 07/14/09 07:11 AM
We'll it looks like trouble is brewing in other places beside our little piece of paradise we call the Beach Villas at Ko Olina.
Trump Waikiki buyers sued Irongate yesterday within an hour of each other in two separate suits.
The first suit states that buyers were misled into thinking that Donald Trump played a bigger roll in the development of the property when in fact, he was just leasing his name to the project. The press releases stated that he was co-developer.
The second suit states that the buyers were misled regarding who would be managing the rental program and … (0 comments)

hawaii: The Best Opportunities come during times of uncertanty. Now is certainly one of those times at the Beach Villas at Ko Olina with Lawsuits filed and threats of additional lawsuits. - 06/24/09 09:55 AM
First things first, I think it's a 50/50 shot that the final sales event will happen by the planned end of July date. With everything up in the air, I don't see how the sale could happen by then. I could be wrong, but that's my thought. If it were me, I would be using frequent flier miles for those tickets so that you could change them at a moments notice. I'll update here if anything changes.
Secondly, if things turn out the way I think they may, those of you who have made a reservation and are in line to … (0 comments)

An appropriate reflection from Rudyard Kipling's If regarding the real estate market these days. According to today's Honolulu Star Bulletin article, 724 homes went into foreclosure in the month of March, a 503% increase from last year.
The Waikoloa area on the Big Island had the largest number of forclosures.

The city of Kapolei where the Ko Olina Resort is located, experienced the largest number of foreclosures on all of Oahu during the first quarter of this year.

hawaii: Disney Ko Olina work continues, see photo - 03/06/09 10:20 AM
A realtor mentioned that they thought construction had halted at the Disney Resort in Ko Olina. Well as I have observed with my own eyes, (see below photo) and the news article, I don't believe that this is the case.
As reported by NBC WPTV channel 5 today:

hawaii: Baby Boomers and Mexico: Ah, It's good to be in Paradise Hawaii USA - 03/01/09 09:56 AM

Today's Dallas Morning News was touting Mexico as being a great place for baby boomer migration. Before I purchased at the Beach Villas, we also looked long and hard at Mexico as one of our options. So what made us choose Hawaii?
1 - It is the United States of America.
2 - No other place in the world is like Hawaii, not just the physical part like the beaches but the people and the "Aloha" spirit that is shared with visitors and residents alike.
3 - The ongoing drug violence in Mexico – more than 6,200 people killed last … (2 comments)
