foreclosure: Kanaloa at Kona Short Sales and Foreclosures 2016 - 01/27/16 02:30 PM
Real Estate News, Kanaloa at Kona Foreclosures and short sales 2016. 
Just when we thought it was over, here comes one out of the closet. I'm not going to use all the "Realtor" terms... "wont last" "must see" ...... But I am going to say if you always wanted to get into Kanaloa, but just weren't ready to spend $700,000, $800,000, then this is worth looking at. Over the past 10 years we have seen several people get into these "gateway" units and see if Kanaloa is a "fit" for them,  many will upgrade to the ocean front, or bay front units after a few … (0 comments)

Looking for foreclosure auctions - here it is, old fashioned style, at the courthouse steps!
Actually in Kona we have them at the "Flagpole" instead of the courthouse, but it is the same thing, no online waiting, bidding against others in cyberspace, waiting for the auction house to give you an answer, only to find out after you won, all the bids were to low (that's in the small print on page 108 of the online disclosure-lol) ........ This is live, in person, open bidding at the flagpole.

foreclosure: Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act Extended through 2013 - 01/24/13 06:03 AM
Homeowners can relax a little again; Congress has included an extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act in an eleventh hour bill to avoid a possible fiscal cliff crisis. The Act was scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012, but has been extended, in the American Taxpayer Relief Act- until December 31, 2013.
The stakes were incredibly high. With almost three million mortgage loans in, or near foreclosure, five million more borrowers suffering with high-rate loans that they have not refinanced, and nearly 12 million borrowers whose mortgage debt adds up to$600 billion more than the homes are worth. The … (1 comments)
