Why you should purchase a second home or condominium in Hawaii

Why own a second home in Hawaii? This is not a new thought because this has been the trend for a long time. Let's examine who is most likely to purchase a house or condominium on Oahu/Honolulu, Maui, Kauai or the Big Island of Hawaii.

WHY PURCHASING A HOME IN HAWAII MAKES SENSE: 

1. First and foremost, you keep coming to Hawaii and like one island over another.

2. Hotels or vacation rental charges are adding up.

3. Same with rental cars. Why not purchase a car and keep it at your home?

4. Keep all your clothes and resort items in one place. Suitcases are just not enough.

5. Chances are, you will get to know like-minded other owners in the community you purchase in, and establish friendships.

6. The home will be available for you anytime you are ready to visit.

PURCHASING A HOME IN HAWAII IS AN INVESTMENT TOWARDS A FUTURE SALE:

Why do you EVER purchase a home? For an investment. Traditionally, real estate has increased in Hawaii, so if you do decide to sell your property, chances are your equity has increased and you have had the use of the property over time.

RETIRING IN HAWAII:

If you purchase your home with a loan, now might be a good time so that when you retire it is paid off. In the meantime, you can rent the house or condominium as a vacation rental while you are not using it to deflect some or all of the expenses.

PART TIME RESIDENTS WHO WANT TO GET AWAY FROM WINTER WEATHER

This is especially true this time of the year when winter weather can be brutal. Canadians, for example, have found that Hawaii is the perfect place to come every year. And those who come back repeatedly, have purchased their own home or condominium.

If you are thinking of purchasing a second home or condominium in Hawaii, please give me a call and let's discuss what makes sense for you.

Hella your advice is very good. Especially in these times, it can only be a better place to park your funds and with much more fun then the boring stock market.

Have a great day.

I can think of a number of reasons to buy in Hawaii, or sell for that matter.

Hello Hella. I can understand your thinking and I believe that Hawai is a wonderful place to live and vacation. Is it your primary residence?

Steven: There are probably endless stories of why and how people ended up owning property in Hawaii. Maui is certainly one of the favorite islands for buying second homes.

Sheila: It is unfortunate that we can only have one "primary" residence. Hawaii is my second home right now, although it was my primary residence for over 26 years.

Debbie: I would love to show them Hawaii from an owners perspective.

Good morning Hella. If one can afford it, there isn't a better place to have a second home in this country.

Rebecca: You are so right, there is no one island or area that everyone wants to go to. Everyone has their favorite, and that's where they should purchase.

Joe: And if you go there a lot anyway, you need to consider the long term and invest rather than just spending it on hotels or vacation rentals.
