kapolei homes: Short Sale Approved! - 05/17/11 05:59 PM
So I received an offer on one of my short sale listings about a month ago.  Put the package together, sent it to the lender and play the waiting game.......Everytime I call (customer service only because they won't give out the negotiators number) they tell me to send this information or that document and some kind of update, basically the run around.  Then they say don't call till this date....well I call on that date and they tell me that everything is with the negotiator and I should be receiving an answer soon.
The next week they tell me that the … (6 comments)

kapolei homes: Yard Signs.... - 02/21/11 05:25 PM
So I need to buy some new for sale signs and for some reason or another I can't decide on which type to get...it seems like such an easy thing to do but after doing a bit of research and speaking with a few companies one would never believe the amount of bells and whistles that go along with a simple for sale sign.   Full color, 4 colors, laminated, not laminated, reflective, non reflective....and that is just the sign itself, the stand is a whole nother thing to decide on. 
The ones that I have been using are just the standard … (6 comments)

kapolei homes: Appraised Values not meeting the mark - 04/21/09 09:34 PM
I recently had a client that I represented as the buyers agent...we looked at properties for months, put in offers and finally got one under contract.  Luckily it was the best one that we had looked and an absolute steal.  Everything went well through the transaction except when we got the appraised value (VA Loan), which ended up being $10k short.  At first I thought it wasn't a big deal and $10k didn't seem like much when the property is valued at more then $500k, but it sure is ending up to be a HUGE headache.  The main problem is that … (10 comments)

kapolei homes: UP and coming... - 03/11/09 10:23 PM
So the economy is pretty BAD right now, most people say it hasn't been this bad since the great depression.  So what should we do...pack up our things and feel sorry for ourselves?  NO THANKS!
