Kapolei Commons Shopping Center in Kapolei Hawaii

Kapolei Commons is the new shopping center in the city of Kapolei Hawaii.  It currently contains Target, Sports Authority, Down to Earth, Office Max, Ross, Dennys, Bank of Hawaii, The Vitamin Shop and several other smaller stores and eateries.  This video also gives you an idea of where Kapolei Commons is located in regards to Makakilo, Costco, Home Depot, the Honolulu Star Advertiser Newspaper and Koolina Resort where the new Disney Aulani Resort is located. 

Kapolei Commons is located just a short drive from Ewa Beach Hawaii (about 15 minutes) where you can find some of the most affordable, quality built homes on the island of Oahu.

My profession is Hawaii real estate so I apologize ahead of time for the imperfect videography!

Walmart in Kapolei, Hawaii

The new Walmart located in Kapolei, Hawaii on the island of Oahu continues to be constructed pretty quickly.  As of Sep 5, 2011, the roof is about 50% completed. 

It is located in the city of Kapolei at the intersection of Kamokila Blvd and Ft. Barrett Road just south of the H-1 Highway.  Across the street from the Walmartis a Chilis restaurant and a variety of other stores.  Kapolei continues to grow and is no doubt becoming the “Second City” of Oahu as promised in years past.

With the newDisney Aulani Resort opening last week in Koolina, this Walmart will be much needed to service the workers atDisney Aulani as well as the guests of the hotel/timeshare.

Short Sales on Oahu, Hawaii

Short sales on Oahu, Hawaii continue to be very prevalent on the island.  Each day as I read the “hot sheets” that show the newest properties that have come on the market, I notice that there are always more short sales available.  The area of the island doesn’t matter.  Each area is affected by short sales but the higher numbers of short sales are located in Mililani, Ewa Beach, Kapolei, Makakilo, Waianae and Waikele

Even though there are a lot of short sales in Hawaii, there are also a lot of buyers looking for properties. 

Here is what you need to do if you want to be successful at getting a Hawaii short sale offer accepted:

1.  You need to have your agent set you up on an auto notification system that will send you an email each time a new property comes on the market that meets your search parameters.

2.  You must go to see the property immediately.  If you wait, it will be gone.

3.  Make sure your agent submits all of the appropriate documents with the short sale packet which will include a loan preapproval letter from your lender. 

4.  Insure you are working with an agent that is familiar with the procedures involved in short sales.

5.  DONT THINK YOU CAN LOW BALL AN OFFER JUST BECAUSE IT IS A SHORT SALE.  YOU WILL LOSE OUT TO SOMEONE WHO IS WILLING TO PAY FAIR MARKET VALUE!

Almost all of the short sales in Hawaii will accept a VA loan from a veteran Buyer.  Need more info on VA loans in Hawaii?  Call or email me anytime.
