Some Seller,s are getting more and more desperate. That means smart buyer,s can find good investment properties with the right approach and knowledge. One thing to look for is a strong area like Hawaii, supply and demand 101 dictates property will have value even in a slow market. There is only so much land on a Island. Investor,s would be wise too use the knowledge of local Realtors that have seen and survived slow market periods before. So don't be afraid to buy just buy smart and be willing endure a little time.
