What is the Benefit of Using a Local Real Estate Expert Like David Kucic?

When you make the decision to buy a home, your are committing to quite the process, and it can be overwhelming. Mortgage pre-approval, paperwork, home showings, inspections and more could leave you confused and stressed. Having a real estate expect on your team to make the process enjoyable and easy can be a fantastic gift!

Understanding of the Community

When you enlist the help of a local real estate expert, you are also gaining access to all of their connections and information about the community. They will be more vested into your happiness and success due to their role in the community, and will have a better idea of locations that may interest you. With the extra networking they’ve gained over the years, they may have information to help you that other realtors don’t, and access to the most current listings for housing searches. They will be able to help you integrate into the community quicker with first hand knowledge.

Time, and in Some Cases, Money

With help from an expert, you will get progress accomplished much faster. Viewings, paperwork, communication will all be second nature to them and they will be able to guide you through it. They will know where shortcuts can safely be taken to save time and money, and will be able to thoroughly explain that to you, as well. Understanding values of homes and how they hold that value will help ensure you are putting in the best offers on homes, too.

I love Hawaii, I’m ready to find a home. Where do I start?

I love Hawaii, I’m ready to find a home. Where do I start?

So you’ve fallen in love with the beautiful views of the Hawaiian shore, or perhaps the rich and fun culture on the islands. Maybe you are just being stationed here and had no say in the matter. Whatever may be bringing you here, you are now on the lookout for a home that will be perfect for you or your family as you make this big move.

Budget and Duration Decisions

First thing’s first – you’ll have to make the decision between renting and buying. For short station assignments or a young couple without much savings, renting could be the better way to go. However, if you have some money saved up for a down payment and plans to stick around the area and grow a family, buying could be a much better decision, and will save you some money in the long run. From there you will have to decide what you can afford for rent or a mortgage between you and your significant other, if you have one.

Take Your Decision to a Realtor

Finding a good realtor will be your next step – you can find reviews online to help make your determination before seeking out realtors to meet with. They will be invaluable in connecting you with the community properly, working on your behalf and explaining all of the paperwork and hoops to jump through. Additionally, they will be able to walk you through your mortgage pre-approval process should you decide to take that route. They will then have access to all of the most current housing listings and can filter them for your approval instead of needing to take the time yourself – and can help ensure you ask all of the right questions when looking at homes.

Benefits to Buying a New Home in Ewa Beach

Benefits to Buying a New Home in Ewa Beach

Deciding whether to buy a brand new constructed home or an older home can be a bit of a challenge. There are certainly some incredible benefits to buying a new home and the Ewa Beach communities have many opportunities for you!

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

A new home means less to worry about, plain and simple. You don’t need to worry about repairs left for you from previous owners, or upgrading aesthetics to bring it “up to date”, and you will have some time before regular maintenance starts as well. It will make your transition to your new home much easier if you know that everything is ready and you can concentrate on your move, unpacking, and enjoying the scenery in Ewa Beach!

The Possibilities Are Endless

Buying a new home means that there is a certain amount of flexibility and customization possible. Many home builders will allow you make some decisions about paint colors, flooring, and relative layout inside the home to add that personal touch. In housing communities like you will find in Ewa Beach, you also have the option of selecting your own lot location from a variety of areas, and looking through model homes, as well! If you’re particular about your home and location, this may be one of the biggest benefits to you.

Environmentally Friendly and Energy Saving

We know a newly built home will have some price differences compared to an older home, but keep in mind that the efficiency at which the home operates will be significantly greater than a home built 10-20 years ago, even. As standards change, codes change and they are requiring more and more efficiency out of the materials they use, saving you money. And not only are houses being built smarter, but opting for green appliances will help maintain the new beautiful environment you’ve chosen to live and save you money over time, as well.

If you’re interested in learning more about the new construction and benefits in Ewa Beach housing communities, please contact us before going to builders to ensure you can get the most out of your purchase!
