Oct 2021: Did the Ewa Beach housing market just put the brakes on overbidding and multiple offers? It seems to be true. In the past year (Oct 2020 to Sep 2021) there were multiple offers, overbidding, appraisal clauses, escalation clauses and low inventory. That seems to have changed in many Ewa Beach, Hawaii neighborhoods. Consult with your Realtor for more information before you make a mistake by overbidding or adding an unnecessary clause in your contract.

Feb 14, 2021 Hawaii Veteran Buyers Using VA Loan: Buyer Beware

This market on Oahu is crazy as we are all aware.  It’s really a great time to be a Seller for many reasons during these times.


My concern is with our Buyers, specifically our VA Buyers who are doing 100% financing as most VA Buyers do and then needing to leave on PCS orders in 3 years.

We have no idea how long this Sellers market will last and when it will swing back in favor of Buyers.  Once the market shifts back to a Buyers market, there is more competition amongst Sellers to attract Buyers and one of the ways they do that is by offering things such as lower price and paying for some or all of the Buyers closing costs.


If our VA Buyers are unable to sell their homes because they would have to come out of pocket with cash in order to sell, then their next logical choice is to turn it into a rental property.  That is great as long as the Owner is able to “eat” the shortage each month.

For example, let’s say Sergeant Smith buys a condo in Ewa Beach for $425,000 with 100% financing.  The maintenance and HOA fee is approximately $550 per month.  The mortgage payment would be about $1,625 per month.  That’s $2,175 total.  Those units rent for about $2,000 per month.   The property manager gets $200.  The GET that the owner pays is $120 per month.  This means that Sergeant Smith would be upside down by $495 per month and that doesn’t include any repairs that might need to be made.  


Please think about your future when purchasing a home rather than just jumping in without the knowledge of what could potentially happen in the future.

January 2021: Rentals in Hot Demand in Ewa Beach, Hawaii

Its a trickle down effect. Buyers cant buy homes because there is too much competition and the Buyers cant wait forever so they are now turning to renting homes in Ewa Beach, Hawaii or moving into government housing. Its really a shame that these Buyers are not able to be competitive enough to buy homes but its all about “who has the most liquid cash to pay above the asking price for a house?” Typically, that is not my brother and sister Veterans that have this type of liquid cash so they are being priced out of the market. This makes renting a home even a difficult task for some Military Families since they are unable to purchase homes and now there is even competition for rental homes. Some of the most desirable areas in Ewa Beach, Hawaii such as the Hoakalei Resort properties of Ka Makana, Kuapapa and Lei Pauku, Ocean Pointe, Ewa By Gentry homes in all neighborhoods including Sonoma, Prescott, Haleakea, Cypress Point, Woodbridge, Carriages, Parkside, Tuscany, Montecito, Las Brisas, Tiburon, Cortebella, Terraza, Tides, Trades, SeaBridge, Coral Ridge, Latitude and Sandalwood to name a few.

Bidding Wars on Ewa Beach, Hawaii Homes Continues Into 2021

The inventory of homes for sale in Ewa Beach, Hawaii is minimal. There are a ton of Buyers looking for homes. Interest rates are low. Combine those 3 things and you have “bidding wars” on homes. In the past 2 weeks, we have had Buyers make offers ABOVE the list price by many, many thousands of dollars only to get beat out by someone that was willing to go higher. Two of the properties had a total of 28 offers and another one had 22 offers. Thats very hard to compete with if Buyers are not willing and/or not able to pay a higher price and have disposable cash to make up the difference between the appraised value and the inflated price they have to pay just to get the house.

Want a Referral For a Home Mortgage in Hawaii?

There are thousands of loan officers doing mortgages in Hawaii. I will only recommend one. His name is John Sego. I have known John for 15 years when we were both on active duty. Sure I could recommend other loan officers however I know John is a man of integrity, loyalty, honesty and excellent service and communication. I put my reputation on the line whenever I refer someone and I never hesitate to recommend John to any of my buyers whether they are doing a VA loan or a conventional loan. From one veteran to another, active-duty, retiree, national Guard, Army reserve, department of defense civilian, NSA, FBI or a civilian with no ties to the department of defense.
