How Real Estate Investment in Different States Work

There are various challenges to investing in real estate, especially if you are coming from out-of-state. First, you want to have a good idea of what the market is so that you are making a wise investment decision that offers potential resale value, if you’re looking to permanently or temporarily reside in the property, or long-term growth if you are looking to rent or sell the property down the road. Similarly, you want to make sure that you are well-financed, as the Hawaiian real estate market can be relatively competitive, with many properties ending in cash deals. Having proper financing, whether through a bank-issued line of credit or through portfolio lines of credit, can facilitate a rapid purchase. Likewise, knowing the tax codes and how you can maximize capital gains relative to residing in a property can help to ease your tax burden.

Finding a real estate investor

Although Hawaiian real estate is not quite as volatile as the real estate market in the “mainland” United States given its limited supply and restrictive zoning laws, having a knowledgeable real estate investor can help you find the right property while simplifying and expediting the acquisition process. Fortunately, there are a variety of real estate investment organizations and seminars relative to investing in Hawaiian real estate and real estate in Kona specifically. You want to work with a local real estate who has extensive experience (at least 5 years) in the market, a successful track record and a sound knowledge of the various property opportunities available in Kona to help you make the best choice possible given your assets, interests and long-term goals.

Why invest on the Kona coast of Hawaii

There are many benefits to investing in a property on the Kona coast. First, relative to properties on Oahu or Maui, you spend less to get more property. This has obvious benefits for short and long-term investment. Second, especially if you are looking to make Hawaii your new residence or a second home, there are an abundance of cultural and natural opportunities on the Kona coast, ranging from snorkeling and coffee plantations to palaces and historical parks. Finally, the Kona coast, and the Big Island in general, offer a more “small town” feel than the rest of the Hawaiian islands that offers a great opportunity to get away from it all or live a more sustainable life.
