Laulani Shopping Center in Ewa Beach, HI (Including Safeway Grocery Store)

The Laulani Shopping Center in Ewa Beach, Hawaii is moving ahead quickly and is estimated to be open by the end of 2012.  I stopped by the construction site yesterday after noticing a sign that named some of the businesses committed to taking up residence in the shopping center.  Among those names are:  Safeway Grocery Store, City Mill home improvement store, Walgreens, Petco and Ross.

The addition of this shopping center will bring a lot of relief to the always congested Foodland/Longs Drugs shopping center at the intersection of Ft. Weaver and Geiger Road.

With the volume of real estate sales in Ewa Beach currently running very high and the inventory of available homes very low, the addition of the Laulani Shopping Center will add to the rise in home prices in Ewa Beach.   People often complained about there not being enough shopping in Ewa Beach but that will soon take a drastic change when the new shopping center opens.

Using Your VA Loan in Hawaii to Pay Off Credit Cards

Did you know that you can use money from a VA Loan in Hawaii to pay off credit cards, student loans or other consumer debt?  Its not illegal and it is not a secret but many Hawaii Military Veterans don’t know how to benefit from this and many Hawaii Real Estate Buyers Agents don’t know how to word a contract correctly in order for you to take advantage of this.

The bottom line is that you can get a credit from a Seller of a home in Hawaii or a credit from a developer of a new construction home in Hawaii and use it to pay off your consumer debt.   This can only be done with a Hawaii VA Loan and not other loan programs.  For example:  If you buy a $400,000 single family home on Oahuand the Seller credits you $15,000, you can use some of that money to pay off consumer debt in conjunction with your Hawaii VA Loanin addition to using the money to pay off your closing costs and prepaids.  In the past, Buyers that I have represented have paid off car loans, credit cards and student loans in conjunction with the purchase of their homes in Hawaii.

Something You Should Know About a VA Loan in Hawaii

This is something that you should know about a VA Loan in Hawaii.

Assuming you are  eligible for a VA Loan in Hawaii and have enough active duty service to qualify for the lowest “VA Funding Fee”, you will pay an additional 2.15% of the loan amount (3.3% if you are using the VA Loan for a second or third time) when you purchase a home in Hawaii.  Conventional loans have “Mortgage Insurance” when the down payment is less than 20%.  VA Loans in Hawaii have a “VA Funding Fee“.

The difference between the Hawaii VA Loan and the Conventional Loan in Hawaii is that the Mortgage Insurance is an additional monthly charge that you pay on top of your principal, interest, taxes and insurance.

With the VA Funding Fee, the 2.15% gets “rolled into the loan”.  For example, if you buy a piece of real estate on Oahu for $400,000, your actual total loan amount will be 400,000 + 2.15% = $408,600.

The purpose of the VA Funding Fee on Hawaii VA Loans is the same as Mortgage Insurance on Hawaii Conventional Loans:  They insure the lender in case the Buyer defaults on the loan.
