Price Reductions: 1. Kahala At Poipu Kai #113. This is a 1 bedroom 1 bath condo for $329,900. MLS#225425 Just a few tips on this post. Buying REO properties are different then buying Kauai real estate from a private owner using the Hawaii state standard Purchase Contract. Prices on Kauai REO properties are usually much cheaper but inspection periods are shorter and you are buying the property "AS IS". Termite inspections and staking should be done as part of the buyers inspections if you think their is going to be an issue with these items. Your financing should be in order as their is usually an PER DIEM fee for extensions. But at least buying a Hawaii REO has many more safety precautions then buying Hawaii Foreclosures on the courthouse steps. You probably don't want to buy an occupied property at a Hawaii foreclosure auction. Evictions are long and costly and you may up with a stripped home. Using a Realtor on a listed home will insure some protection. Happy Hunting.
